Being the industry authority, the GGF promotes best practice and sets the highest technical and health & safety standards. The Federation is also the voice of the industry in local and national politics helping shape and influence policy and legislation. As well as offering an array of benefits to its members, the GGF guides and protects homeowners when buying glass or glazing products and services.
The GGF has released a new publication entitled “Acoustics - How glazing can help reduce noise”. The new document offers excellent guidance to homeowners and the industry on the complex subject, of how the installation of suitable glazing can help reduce noise entering the home.
At the end of 2014, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) fully supported the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Asbestos Campaign to help tradespeople at risk from the dangers of asbestos exposure. Since then the GGF has been delighted to see the Campaign gather momentum with new survey results, new information pages on the HSE website, guidance on training and a free web app.
