Event description
This event is part of FTI's Facades Week: LA! 2020. Learn about the design, fabrication and installation of laminated glass railing systems.

About this Event

Hosted as part of the Facade Tectonics Institute (FTI)'s Facades Week Educational Workshop Series, this educational workshop will focus on the design, fabrication and installation of laminated glass, with a particular focus on glass railing systems.

The first hour will focus on the technical and structural properties of stiff, ionoplast interlayers, which are often specified for glass railing systems. The effective thickness method found in ASTM E1300 and Finite Element Modeling will be used to demonstrate the load resistance and deflection benefits associated with this interlayer when used in minimally supported glass railing systems. Presenters will also review fabrication guidelines and building code requirements for laminated glass railings. The second hour features two demonstrations on wet and dry-glazed installation methods.

Workshop Objectives

  1. Learn about the structural benefits of stiff laminated glass interlayers used in minimally supported glass railing systems
  2. Learn about different methods to determine the load resistance and deflection performance of structural laminates.
  3. Learn about the compatibility of sealants used with laminated glass interlayers used in glass railings
  4. Identify fabrication issues and building code requirements for glass railings
  5. Witness two installation demonstrations on wet and dry-glazed systems

    VAUGHN SCHAUSS | KURARAY

    Vaughn Schauss is the Americas Technical Consultancy Manager for Kuraray’s Trosifol division. In this role, he works with architects and specifiers, structural engineers, façade consultants and glass fabricators on the specification, design, and use of laminated glass in buildings. Vaughn began his career working directly with glass laminators providing expertise on the lamination process. Now, he concentrates his efforts on structural, security, acoustical, and hurricane applications for laminated glass. Vaughn is active in many industry organizations and standards committees such as ASTM, AAMA, NGA and others.

    A frequent speaker and author of articles about the use of glass in buildings, Vaughn brings over 10 years of experience in the glass and glazing industry. He is a graduate of the University of Houston with a master’s degree in Chemistry.
