Tool Transformation
Smartphones and tablets have become key jobsite tools for glaziers. Glass companies big and small rely on mobile devices for everything from location tracking to file sharing to on-site problem solving, turning a cell phone into an indispensable and multipurpose tool. Glaziers outlined the top uses for mobile devices on the jobsite. 
In the March 2018 issue, Glass Magazine will present the Top Glass Fabricators Special Report, offering a comprehensive view of the glass fabrication market in the United States and Canada. If your company belongs in this special feature, complete the submission form by Dec. 29.

Product Spotlight
EnduroShield: Now Available at GGI
GGI is pleased to offer EnduroShield, a 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. The ultra-thin and permanent coating is invisible, and unlike other coatings that can only be applied to clear and low iron glass, EnduroShield can be applied to acid etched glass, digitally-printed glass and patterned glass.
