PGC International Announces January Webinar on Fire-Rated Glazing

The Protective Glazing Council (PGC) International announced the first webinar of the 2010 monthly webinar series. The hour-long webinars, for architects, building owners, specifiers, glazing contractors and others in the architectural community, are free and focus on various industry topics.

The next webinar will be given by Devin Bowman, national sales manager for Technical Glass Products (TGP), a Snoqualmie, Wash.-based supplier of fire-rated glass and framing systems, along with architectural glazing products. In a presentation titled Understanding Fire-Rated Glass, Labeling Requirements, and Building Code Allowances, Bowman will discuss fire-rated glazing materials, their distinguishing characteristics and their role in fire protection.

“Devin’s presentation will give our attendees a much better handle on fire-rated glazing and its growing value in the marketplace,” says Brian Pitman, director of marketing and communications for the organization. “We look forward to kicking off our 2010 webinar series with this excellent presentation.”

Additionally, visitors to the PGC International website may now purchase videos of previous webinars for download, including any handouts offered from the presentation. The first presentation for purchase, Mitigating the Threats to Electronic Assets with Glazing by Ron Waranowski, is available on the website for $4.95, and visitors will be able to download the presentation immediately after paying by credit card.

“We had several visitors to the website ask for this feature,” says Pitman. “From now on, anyone who misses a presentation will be able to download it for viewing on their computer or portable media device inexpensively.”

Bowman’s presentation begins at noon EST, January 29.
