Window & Door
June 1, 2015

The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance released a new Vacuum Insulating Glass Technical Bulletin on its webstore. Written by several of its members, including many experts in vacuum insulating glazing (VIG), the bulletin is intended to assist residential or commercial insulating glass and window manufacturers on the topic of VIG, which offers performance approaching a well-insulated wall, but with two layers of glass.

“We feel it is very important to offer this document to the global IG industry,” said Marg Webb, IGMA executive director. “Many manufacturers are looking to incorporate VIG and our purpose was to give them the proper tools to accurately determine the benefits of VIG systems.”

VIG task group chair Dave Cooper of Guardian Industries Corp. stated, "We had strong representation from the global VIG community, contributing many hours to create this document. It is a nice primer to VIG and its intended usage." The bulletin is available to the public for $30 on the IGMA website. IGMA members in good standing will receive a complimentary copy as a benefit of their membership.

The bulletin, as well as many other publications, standards and more, are created as part of IGMA’s technical conferences. This year’s IGMA Fall Technical Conference will be in downtown Denver October 5-8 at the Brown Palace and features top industry experts in several technical and networking sessions. Registration may be found on the IGMA website.
