I just recently returned form the annual Glass Build America trade show presented by the National Glass Association in Atlanta. It is always a fun and exciting show where companies from around the world present the newest technology and innovations available to the glass industry. I attend this show every year with the goal of learning about the newest products, meeting new manufacturers and suppliers and finding new exciting products to offer to Dallas and Ft Worth homeowners, business owners, contractors and designers.
It amazes me every year the advances that are made in the flat glass industry. Technology has allowed for many new process and products. Over the next few weeks I will highlight some of the companies and their products that I found very interesting and hopefully introduce you to some of the new possibilities available with glass. I will focus on digital printing on glass, some of the unique laminating capabilities now available mixing glass with other materials such as wood, fabric and even vegetation (flowers, grass, etc…) and switchable glass (a product that can instantly be trnsfromed from transparent to translucent with the click of a button.
Check back often as I will be providing links to these innovative companies and their products. As always if you have a custom glass need, we here at Alamo Glass are here to serve you. Contact us today to discuss your custom glass project with our customer representatives.
