Every Thursday leading up to USGlass magazine’s 50th Anniversary celebration in August, USGNN.com™ is taking a look back at past issues and highlighting advertisements, stories and images that ran throughout the publication’s half-century life. This week, it’s what’s in the sky.

In the mid-1980s, large commercial skylights were continuing to increase in popularity in a variety of applications. In the feature story below (click the image to read), which ran in the August 1986 edition of USGlass, Ivan Johnson discusses the types of glazing used in skylights, as well as their implications with codes.


What do you think? What has changed the most in the glass industry since then, and what would you like to see in a future edition of Throwback Thursday? Leave your thoughts in the comment section, and we’ll see you next week.
