GANA releases bulletin on screening UV rays

GANA’s new Glass Informational Bulletin (GIB), titled Screening Out Ultraviolet Radiation with Laminated Glass, was completed at the association’s Annual Conference, during the Protective Glazing Committee meetings.

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) has released a new Glass Informational Bulletin (GIB) available for download free of charge from its website. The GIB, titled Screening Out Ultraviolet Radiation with Laminated Glass, discusses how laminated glazing provides protection against the harmful effects of prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation, according to a release from the association.
“Most consumers recognize that UV rays can fade the colours in furniture and carpeting over a period of time,” says Brian Pitman, director of marketing and communications for GANA, in the release. “This document discusses the strategies for mitigating these effects using something as easy as laminated glazing. We hear from the general public from time to time, and preventing colour fade is one of the most common questions we receive. This document can help those wanting a solution.”
The GIB was completed at the GANA Annual Conference, during the Protective Glazing Committee meetings. Several other informational bulletins were finalized during the event.
Glass Informational Bulletins are available as a complimentary download in the TechCenter section of GANA’s website. At present, there are more than two dozen bulletins covering a wide variety of glass and glazing topics on the site.
