Glass Magazine's Top 50 Glaziers 25th Anniversary
Glass Magazine introduced the Top 50 Glaziers report in 1992, launching an annual survey to gauge the health and performance of the U.S. glazing industry, track trends and recognize leading companies. In the 25 years since the inaugural Top 50 report, the North American glass industry witnessed periods of strong growth and of painful contraction; it became a key player in the new era of green building and high-performance design; and it adapted to more stringent building codes in the wake of events such as Hurricane Andrew and 9/11.

Read additional content from the June 2017 issue of Glass Magazine in this special online-only section. Content includes Top 50 Glaziers historical infographics, additional supplier advice for glaziers, facade anchoring FAQs and more.

CRL Introduces Innovative Hydraulic Patch Fitting Featuring an Integrated Self-Closing Mechanism
CRL’s innovative Hydraulic Patch Fitting eliminates the need to cut into the floor to install a conventional floor closer because the closing mechanism is housed in the patch itself. It only requires anchoring of the base plate to the substrate. Not only does this simplify installations, it also enhances aesthetics by reducing the amount of visible hardware such as cover plates and overhead closers. CRL’s Hydraulic Patch Fitting features adjustable closing and latching speeds.
Fired Up: Working with design teams in the face of labor challenges
By David Vermeulen
There’s been a lot of talk about how the manufacturing and labor skills gap is affecting the glass industry, and rightly so. Interestingly, among all this talk, there hasn’t been much discussion about how similar challenges in the A&D communities are impacting the glass industry. 
From the Fabricator: John Mammen
By Max Perilstein
