The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has launched a new, online video series documenting the association’s in-person Insulating Glass (IG) Fabricators Workshop. The series has been under development throughout 2021 and the organization says it 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 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,” said 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 2016, FGIA says its IG Fabricators Workshop has led more than 300 practitioners of the insulating glass industry through the most aspects of fabricating and testing IG units. That knowledge is now available to industry professionals in an online format. The video series covers ten segments: 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.

The in-person workshop will be held Nov. 3-5 in Plano, Texas.
