Channel Glass: GGF launches new publications

  • 26 Jun 2020

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) Technical Team is continuing to update and add to its ‘best in industry’ publications.

Following last month’s launch of the Technical Datasheet series on Window Film, the GGF is pleased to introduce the Series 4.6 Channel Glass, which includes five new Technical Datasheets.

David Borland, GGF Senior Technical Officer (pictured below), commented: “This product has seen a real resurgence in recent times and we felt that GGF guidance on the product and its applications was long overdue. They are a welcome addition to the GGF’s technical library.”


The new Series consists of five comprehensive Datasheets with details on; the types of channel glass available such as wired; unwired and toughened, single and double glazed as well as methods of installation, both vertical and horizontal and all aligned with the relevant British and European Standards.

Whilst the lockdown continues to affect travel for Technical Meetings and Site Visits, the Technical Team continue to use the opportunity to bring the GGF’s library of technical information completely up-to-date, whilst also creating new publications that GGF Members have requested.

A new Series 6 for Windows & Doorsets and Hardware is currently in its first draft and will be issued shortly for review and comments to the GGF Members of the relevant technical groups.
