In addition, TB-1601-14, Guidelines for Use of Capillary Tubes, was published jointly by IGMA and GANA.

Besides the above technical documents, GANA members have developed technical manuals and guides that offer great resources for a diverse set of glass and glazing professionals. Recently, work has been underway to update the Blueprint Reading and Estimating Course, which is scheduled for publication this summer.

Other GANA Divisions are also actively pursuing updates to:

  • Engineering Standards Manual
  • Laminated Glazing Reference Manual
  • AIA Multi-Cavity Glazing Presentation
  • Decorative Glazing Manual

The Building Envelope Contractors Technical Committee is focusing on updates to the Project Manager’s Manual, as it is now almost 10 years old. We’re adding and revising a lot of information.

The GANA Team begins 2015 fully staffed and ready to move forward. The keynote event of this promising year will be the upcoming GANA Annual Conference, scheduled for March 5 – 8 at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. The event will include meetings of all GANA Divisions and will feature several presentations, including:

  • Thermal Stress Breakage in Spandrel Applications
  • Explosives Research Capabilities and Resources
  • Code Changes for Railings and the Impact on Laminated Glass, Systems & Grouts
  • Protective Glazing Council: Experts Panel
  • Energy Code Implications for Spandrel Panel Design
  • Gas Retention in Insulating Glass Units
  • Slip Resistant Glass Floors

Technical Committees will also discuss codes, standards and other specification updates in the areas of exterior glazing of laminated glass handrails, Product Category Rules for processed Glass, an ASTM E1300 Update on Ceramic Enameled (Frit) and more.
