New technical hub

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has launched a new Technical Hub, where members and others in the industry can access all the federation’s technical services and products.

The aim of the new hub is to provide a more informative service primarily for GGF members but also to highlight to non-members and the wider industry – such as architects, specifiers and building designers – the many technical services the GGF offers.

The GGF Technical Hub provides the full range of technical support and covers core operations such as: consultancy, technical consultations and publications such as GGF datasheets and guides.

David Borland, GGF’s senior technical officer, said: “Rather than simply update the generic technical information page, we wanted to create an online home where visitors to the GGF website can find all aspects of the GGF’s technical resource. The new Technical Hub will provide a much more immersive experience.”

The concertina style drop down design has multiple sub-sections for the user’s convenience and ease of navigation, with each topic providing links to relevant documents and/or easy online booking forms.

The Technical Hub offers the latest technical news and access to an events and meetings calendar, which includes details of the GGF’s specialist technical groups’ meetings, technical webinars and online forums.

There is relevant information and links to government and trade information such as consultations that may impact on members’ business.

The Technical Hub also has a complete list of industry standards under review from BSI (UK standards), CEN (European standards) and ISO (international standards). Visitors to the hub can see the current status of each standard and relevant dates for response to the relevant standards body (BSI, CEN or ISO).
