GANA to Provide Resources to WIndow Cleaners

Post Time:Sep 04,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:405

Window washers should be prepared for a number of new glass resources that may be coming their way.

Greg Carney, technical director of the Glass Association of North America (GANA), noted during the GANA Tempering Division Construction Subcommittee that GANA continues to communicate with the International Window Cleaning Association (IWCA). Carney added, “I’d say our discussions today are in a positive light.” This topic was once again under discussion during GANA’s Fall Conference, taking place this week at the Embassy Suites in Kansas City, Mo. (

Carney noted that the IWCA has formed a task group for the sole purpose of meeting with GANA to talk about the issues at hand. This spring, Carney met with IWCA representatives and discussed several potential joint activities. Among those activities were: potentially developing a glass information bulletin (GIB) on best practices for fabricating heat strengthened and fully tempered glass; developing requirements for recommended window cleaning program; evaluating alternative cleaning methods jointly; updating the GANA glass cleaning documents to differentiate between using scrapers and using a small razor blade upon glass.

I’d like to see us have the first conference call to talk about these issues,” Carney commented to the division members, who seemed to agree on this point.

The GANA Fall Conference continues through this afternoon. Stay tuned to USGNN.com™ for further updates.
