LEED made easy Tom Zuzik, Artistic Railings Inc.

LEED can be complicated, but Tom walks you through the process with ease. Learn about information that is specific to the ornamental and architectural metals. Trends in glass railing design Valerie Block, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions

Glass railing systems are being designed with less metal — putting more of an emphasis on the structural and safety performance of the glass. In many cases, laminated glass is being used over monolithic tempered glass to provide the added structural and safety properties necessary. ASTM E 2353 and E 2358 address the testing and specification of glass in glass railing systems, guards, and balustrades. The Canadian Standards Association is currently November / December 2012 n Fabricator

working on the development of a standard, following incidences of falling glass in Toronto. The International Building Code in the United States, as well as the Florida Building Code, requires laminated glass in exterior glass railings for protection against wind-borne debris. Typically fabricated with heat-strengthened or tempered glass, laminated glass will retain glass fragments in the event of breakage. By doing so, the glass balcony will continue to serve as a barrier until replacement can be made. In addition, the risk of falling glass is averted, creating a safer environment for people walking on the street below. This presentation will address trends in glass railing design and the growing use of laminated glass in these systems. Oustanding shop tours planned for METALfab2013

Shop Tours are back for 2013. So far, three shops are confirmed for the tours and a few more in the works. James Minter (2013 Shop Tour Chair) has the following facilities scheduled: n Kenneth Ray, Raysteel Inc., Albuquerque. n Robb Gunter, Architectural Metals, Tigeras, NM. n Pete Shufelt, Backerworks Skilled Welding, Albuquerque. Backerworks is a fabricating facility that does a lot of work for the Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos. They also do some warhead manufacture in Amarillo, TX.

METALfab 2013 Convention Guide


Special Invitation to Focus on Success @ METALfab2013 NOMMA and the NOMMA Education Foundation work together to make METALfab2013 an exciting event for you. Leaders of the Foundation, Roger Carlsen (NEF Chair) and Will Keeler (NOMMA President), briefly describe below what METALfab has meant to them and why they believe that you should join us @METALfab2013 to Focus on Success. Will Keeler, President of NOMMA

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend METALfab2013. During these difficult economic times, NOMMA recognizes the imperative that you get a return on your investment for attending the conference. Well, I believe the hard working convention committee has done a fantastic job lining up an education program and interesting shop tours that will do just that. I have attended nearly 20 METALfab conventions, and I always leave with knowledge of new products, technologies, fabrication methods, better business practices, and a renewed excitement for doing my job. Please join me at METALfab2013 in Albuquerque, March 20–23, to recharge your batteries and Focus on Success.

Roger Carlsen, Chair of the NOMMA Education Foundation

Anyone who has used the NOMMA ListServ realizes how valuable this forum is. Even though we know this benefit is worth the cost of our annual membership, we have thought “wouldn’t it be even better if we could actually talk to the person who responded to our post? Many times I have thought “I would just like to be able to put a face with the names of the people that seem so intriguing on the NOMMA ListServ.” All of this and more can happen at METALfab2013 in Albuquerque, NM, March 20–23. METALfab is like “reality ListServ” on steroids. Not only will you meet, greet, and talk with people you have seen post on the ListServ, but there is so much more. Each year that I attend METALfab, I come away with a wealth of information and a greater wealth of friends. I encourage everyone to see this as an investment in you and your business! Register today and be sure and stay at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque so that you can enjoy the after hour conversations.

Special Events @ METALfab2013 Opportunities abound at METALfab to spend time with fellow attendees in a casual surrounding but that does not mean that the learning has stopped. One conversation can lead to the solution to a challenge you’re facing. Be sure and attend these special events (see schedule on page 49) to continue your Focus on Success. .

The Top Job Jamboree on Friday afternoon gives you the opportunity to learn more about the entries from their creators. The climax to the outstanding program is the presentation of the awards on Saturday evening at the Awards Banquet.

First-time attendee orientation
