Vaughn Schauss

“Understanding Glass Railing Codes, Specs and Materials” will be presented by Vaughn Schauss, the Americas technical consultancy manager for Kuraray’s Trosifol division, at Glass TEXpo™ ’20 in San Antonio. The educational seminar will be held Friday, May 1, 2020 from 11 a.m. – noon at the Henry B. González Convention Center.

Incidents of falling glass from exterior balcony railings in high-rise condominiums have resulted in new standards and building code requirements that address post-breakage performance of glass. This presentation examines the safety concerns around glass in railing systems and the new building code requirements that address the use of these systems.

Faculty: Schauss works with architects and specifiers, structural engineers, façade consultants and glass fabricators on the specification, design and use of laminated glass in buildings. He concentrates his efforts on structural, security, acoustical and hurricane applications for laminated glass, and has over ten years of experience in the glass and glazing industry.
