The Prestige

Glass handrails can create a unique aesthetic for buildings, both interior and exterior. Architectural trends are changing, driving new developments. Here’s what you need to know.

Raise the Roof

As residential high-rises grow taller and architects incorporate more complex and heavy glass systems, glaziers and suppliers must adjust
for changes in installation and design.

The Great Transition

After 43 years in the industry, Richard Beuke is retiring as president of Vitro Architectural Glass; Ricardo Maiz is taking the helm. Both men spoke with USGlass about their careers, and the company’s transition since Vitro’s purchase of PPG’s flat glass division.

Still Riding High

Elevated levels of glass usage in 2018 will carry over to 2019, keeping glazing contractors plenty busy in the near future.
