GGI is pleased to now offer ORNILUX Bird Protection Glass. Developed by Arnold Glas, ORNILUX has a patterned, UV-reflective coating that makes it visible to birds while remaining virtually transparent to the human eye. This reduces the risks of bird collisions and expands the definition of environmental glass to include wildlife conservation. ORNILUX is available as a heat-treatable coating for stock size panes, with the option to order cut-to-size, heat-treated units.

Other new products

GGI will also display samples of EnduroShield, a new, durable glass coating for a wide range of glass types. Machine applied in-house, ensuring uniform coverage, EnduroShield chemically bonds to the glass, transforming it into a high-performance, hydrophobic surface, while protecting against staining and etching. Unlike other coatings that can only be applied to clear and low iron glass, EnduroShield can also be applied to acid etched glass, digitally-printed glass and patterned glass.

Additional products at GGI’s booth will include beautiful bronze, grey, gold and black tinted mirrors, custom magnetic markerboards, Pyrobel fire-resistive glass and framing systems, satin etched products like Crystal Light and Illusion lines, as well as 3/8” Reeded glass.

“The GBA event is a great opportunity to meet and discuss business with customers, suppliers and new prospects. We are excited to exhibit again for the 16th consecutive year and look forward to introducing the full line of GGI products and capabilities,” says David Balik, CEO. “Our goal is to inspire people to do more with glass”.
