The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new online video series documenting the association’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- to 30-minute segments. It is now available for purchase in the FGIA Online Store. Non-members can purchase the series for $500 (USD) while FGIA members receive a discount rate of $250 (USD).
“This video series is an excellent option for those who are unable to travel to our IG Fabricators In-Person Workshop held each November in Plano, Texas,” says Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director. “Now, individuals or entire teams can learn the basics of glass safety responsibilities, insulating glass design, forensic testing and more from their comfort of their homes or offices.”
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. Below are the ten segments covered in the video series:
1. Glass Safety Responsibilities
2. IG Design
3. Glass Cutting and Washing
4. Cavity Gas Fill
5. IG Desiccant Fundamentals
6. Volatile Fog
7. Spacer Fabrication Considerations
8. Frost Point Testing
10. Forensic Analysis of IG Units
The in-person workshop will be held Nov. 3-5 in Plano, Texas.
