GGCA/NWRA Announce Development of Architectural Glass Repair and Scratch Removal Standard

Post Time:Sep 30,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:314

The National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA), a division of the Global Glass

Conservation Alliance, has announced its intention to create an ANSI standard for

architectural glass repair and scratch removal. ANSI has publicized the NWRA’s request

to the public and noted stakeholders include scratch removal practitioners, scratch

removal suppliers, building owners and managers. Currently there is no standard in place

for the repair or the removal of scratches to architectural glass.

 

“There is currently no standard for architectural glass repair and scratch removal,” says

Kerry Wanstrath, NWRA president. “The architectural glass industry really needs a

standard like this to show what a proper repair or scratch removal would look like. As

with the ROLAGS™ Standard, we are trying to ensure safety for consumers who choose

repairing glass over complete replacement. Just as with windshield repair in cars, the

removal of scratches in architectural glass is an environmental process that preserves the

glass and reduces the need for replacement.”

 

For more information or to join the committee to develop the standard, NWRA members

are encouraged to contact the association by emailing khodge@nwrassn.org.

The NWRA is a not-for-profit trade association organized in 1994 to promote the

legitimacy of the windshield repair industry. The NWRA provides a forum for the

exchange of ideas between its members and provides the public, industry and government

with a reliable source of information regarding windshield repair. The NWRA also

organizes, at a grass-roots level, campaigns to influence the governmental agencies

responsible for establishing regulations for the windshield repair industry.
