The primary role of the GGF’s Technical department is to provide technical support to GGF Members and their customers. GGF Technical officers are on hand to assist GGF Members with technical enquiries via the GGF helpline.
The Technical team has also developed and continues to revise a range of publications to support GGF Members in their businesses. These include technical Data Sheets, Good Practice Guides, Codes of Practice and other industry and consumer guides renowned throughout the glass and glazing sector.
Federation Members can further benefit from GGF technical expertise at meetings of the GGF’s specialist technical groups and committees under the Glazing and Home Improvement Executives, where GGF Technical officers provide secretariat and technical support.
When not assisting Members directly, the Technical team contributes to the shaping of policy and helps to steer the setting of National, European and International Standards to the benefit of the Membership and the industry as a whole.
The GGF Technical Consultancy additionally provides a range of services to Members and non-Members including on-site testing, inspections, calibration, product testing and expert witness services. Technical officers are also responsible for the GGF’s industry-leading range of technical publications and data sheets.
