It is no secret that the glass manufacturing industry operates in a highly competitive environment. Simultaneously, we, Arizona Glass professional glaziers, are bound to comply with a whole range of regulatory and legal requirements. Glass is a building material that must protect and not cause injuries. Glass must work to enhance the quality of exteriors and interiors. For this reason, Home Glass Repair Phoenix constantly monitors the quality and safety of its glass products. This year, and for the first time in its history, the International Building Code was changed to provide detailed recommendations for fire-protective and fire-resistive glazing. More specifically, the International Building Code now recommends using fire-resistive rather than fire-protective glazing in window, door, and wall assemblies. These changes are described and proposed in Chapter 7 of the IBC. The revised chapter includes a series of tables with appropriate glazing applications, depending on the size and size limits. Home Glass Repair Phoenix believes that professional glaziers need this information to decide where the use of fire-resistive and fire-protective glazing is appropriate.
We at Arizona Glass cooperate with professional architects and constructors, and we feel that the revised recommendations are of huge value to them. We also realize that where architects do their job well, we also have everything needed to meet sophisticated customer requirements. Of course, many glass manufacturers will need to make changes to product specification tables, newsletters, and technical literature. However, Home Glass Repair Chandler knows that there is “no gain without pain”. The new standards of glazing are extremely important and needed. It’s just that many glaziers will need some time to adjust to the new conditions of playing the glazing game.
