Welcome to the fi rst issue of Guide to Glass, a supplement
dedicated to glass and glass processing that we hope will cast
some light into a sector of the industry that is perhaps not
as well represented in Glass & Glazing Products magazine as it
While we do of course aim to cater for the entire spectrum
of the window, door and conservatory industry in GGP, Guide
2 Glass has afforded us an opportunity to take a closer look at
how this essential raw material can be used for a lot more than
just bi-folds and PVC casements. Companies such as Glass
Designs and RegaLead for instance, are capable of producing
stunning works of art that really do bring buildings to life,
examples of which you can see on pages eight and 16.
As well as insight into the latest in laminated and decorative
technology, Guide to Glass also includes comment from
Pilkington UK and Saint Gobain, advice from experts at
Pyroguard and Fire Glass UK, and a closer look at the latest
products from CR Laurence and Bohle.
Plus, we fi nd out how Pilkington Regional Partner,
Mackenzie Glass, is developing a new offer thanks to
investment in product and machinery and discover how a
demand for over sized ‘jumbo’ IGUs has resulted in spectacular
next generation automation from machinery specialist, Forel.
I hope you enjoy the issue.
