The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new online video series documenting the FGIA’s in-person Insulating Glass (IG) Fabricators Workshop. This series has been under development throughout 2021 and offers a condensed version of the workshop in ten 20-30-minute segments.
Since its launch in 2016, the IG Fabricators Workshop has hosted more than 300 practitioners of the insulating glass industry, leading them through the most important aspects of fabricating and testing IG units. The in-person workshop, led by industry experts, features classroom education along with extensive experience to discover best practices for cleaning, cutting and handling glass, desiccants, sealants, gas fill, frost point, and more. That knowledge is now available to industry professionals in an online format.
The ten segments covered in the video series include Glass Safety Responsibilities, IG Design, Glass Cutting and Washing, Cavity Gas Fill, IG Desiccant Fundamentals, Volatile Fog, Spacer Fabrication Considerations, Frost Point Testing, Sealants, and Forensic Analysis of IG Units.
