Garibaldi Glass Day program released

May 7, 2012  By Garibaldi Glass

May 7, 2012 – Garibaldi Glass has released the itinerary for its Second Annual Garibaldi Glass Day, taking place June 7 from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at its headquarters in Burnaby, B.C. The day will feature a tabletop show and American Institute of Architecture-certified educational seminars from Guardian, Azon, Pilkington and Garibaldi staff.

Guardian will present "Evolution of glass and high-performance coatings," covering the origins of glass from its basic materials through the
manufacturing process. It discusses the various types of Low-E
technologies available and defines relevant energy terms.
Azon will discuss "Optimizing performance in commercial fenestration," concentrating on two technologies: structural thermal
barriers for aluminum window framing and warm-edge spacer technology
for insulating glass.

Industry legend Chris Barry from Pilkington Glass will discuss "Innovative applications for high-transmission coated glass." The presentation will show how anti-reflection coatings on glass can result in reduced visible
reflection and can increase the transmission in the solar, visible or other
specific wave bands. Applications of these products require careful
design to ensure that desired effects are achieved, including esthetic, architectural, transportation, solar collection, photovoltaic, and other requirements. Visual inspection guidelines are described to avoid color illusion
Attendees will learn more about the potential of frit and glass from the Garibaldi Glass team in a talk titled "Fritted glass today and tomorrow."
Space for the seminars is limited and attendees are encouraged to register now.
Garibaldi Glass will be conducting guided tours of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, its structural door department, its CAD lab, and the sales office. Plant and office tours need to be booked in advance.
After a busy afternoon of informative seminars and tours attendees are invited to enjoy some Garibaldi Glass hospitality. The
theme this year is New Orleans Mardi Gras, featuring Cajun food, drink, and entertainment.
To book a seminar or tour, attendees can contact their sales people directly or email
