GANA Decorative Division launches Web site

Post Time:Jun 30,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:159

The Topeka, Kan.-based Glass Association of North America's Decorative Division launched a Web site featuring decorative glass products, according to a June 30 release. The site offers both educational and informative information to architects, designers and others in the industry. It includes a comprehensive glossary of terms and product types, a gallery illustrating the aesthetically pleasing nature of decorative glass products, and more.

"We have worked on this project for the better part of a year, and the results are fantastic," said Cathie Saroka, chair of the division's Web site committee, in the release. "The purpose of this site was to offer information in a dynamic way, so that architects and designers could draw inspiration from other projects, learn the terminology we in the industry use, and maybe even learn new ways to use the product by seeing some of the amazing things that have been done with decorative glass."

The site features company profiles for each of the division's members, segmented into manufacturer, supplier and glazing contractor. "Our goal is to offer the architect and designer a quick way to learn about specific types of decorative glass, see examples, then learn where they can purchase those products for their projects, as well as who may be able to bring forth the experience in installing the product," Saroka said in the release.

The site also has a technical section and a green section. "Green technologies have become a way of life in the glass industry," Saroka said in the release. "We offer our LEED white paper illustrating the ways decorative glazing products may help earn LEED certification points, and soon architects will be able to view our Introduction to Decorative Glazing AIA-accredited presentation on the site for even more easy-approach education and learning units."
