NGA Releases New Resource: Glass for Personal Protective Barriers
NGA is pleased to announce the publication of Glass for Personal Protective Barriers Glass Technical Paper (GTP)—a new and timely resource for the glazing and glass building products industry and for all facilities and businesses managing customer interaction.

The Glass for Personal Protective Barriers GTP addresses the use of protective barriers in retail, medical, educational, and manufacturing facilities and businesses. It was written in response to the implications associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to minimize potential exposure to the virus for both employees and consumers. The GTP elaborates on the differences between the use of plastic sheet and glass, cleaning practices, and installation considerations.  

DOWNLOAD your complimentary GTP, which is available among a host of additional resources, in the NGA STORE at glass.org.
