Guide to Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 is a broad and, at times, daunting term. At its most basic level, Industry 4.0 is computers connecting and communicating with each other, often taking human involvement out of the equation. Automation, however, doesn’t just happen. It takes strategic and thoughtful development steps. 
Glass Magazine is accepting entries for its 2019 Reader Photo Contest. This year’s contest looks to highlight exceptional interiors—innovative interior glass applications, including decorative installations, glass floors, doors, walls, stairs, partitions and more. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 11, 2019.

Fireframes® Curtainwall Series from TGP

The Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania features a 23-foot freestanding fire-rated curtain wall that overlooks a café and helps open up views of the Ohio River beyond. The design team used Fireframes® Curtainwall Series from Technical Glass Products (TGP) to create the stunning expanse. The narrow fire-resistive-rated curtain wall system features a tall free span without any tie-back for structural support and visually complements an adjacent non-fire-rated glass curtain wall for a unified interior.
