Sept. 24, 2010 – A new website has been created as a one-stop resource for all glass-related documents for fenestration and is accessible at www.glassdocs.com. The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), the Glass Association of North America (GANA) and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) have joined forces to create this resource featuring documents from all three organizations.

AAMA, IGMA and GANA are active in standards development and publications of manuals, technical bulletins, test methods and reports in North America. The documents featured on the joint website encompass all areas of glass for fenestration and are available within the following categories:

* Codes & Standards  
* Design & Fabrication
* Voluntary Test Methods
* Post Fabrication & Installation
* Thermal Performance
* Care & Maintenance

The three associations have joined forces to create this one-stop reference site for the benefit of the architectural and code communities in North America. This website is intended to provide the information needed in order to ensure both code compliance and good design.

Rich Walker, AAMA president and CEO stated, "AAMA has long made the development of standards and specifications a priority initiative as this furthers the goals of our members as well as the progress of our industry, and we're proud to be partnering with GANA and IGMA in efforts to make these documents even more accessible."

"These documents covering all areas of glass for fenestration are valuable resources to professionals in the design and construction communities and making the work of our three associations available in one place will serve as a reference that is both informational as well as convenient," Bill Yanek, GANA executive vice president added.

Marg Webb, IGMA executive director stated, "Our standards, manuals and technical bulletins represent an enormous amount of work done in conjunction with industry professionals for the benefit of our industry. This joint website will work to the benefit of those who use our standards and brings together the work that our three associations have to offer."

All three organizations will be updating the site on a continuous basis with document references as they become available.
