About the Protective Glazing Council

Our History
The Protective Glazing Council (PGC) was formed in 1997 to address the growing need for protective glazing systems by the General Services Administration and other government agencies, as well as in general construction in the United States. In 2014, the Protective Glazing Council merged with the Glass Association of North America (GANA) as a standing council. Today, the PGC resides as a standing council within the National Glass Association, upon the combination of GANA and NGA in 2018. Members come from various segments of the industry – glass fabricators, suppliers of materials and accessories, window film manufacturers, curtain wall and window manufacturers, sealant suppliers, test laboratories and fenestration industry.

Who We Are
PGC  represents manufacturers of protective glazing products and systems, suppliers to these manufacturers, consultants and testing organizations. The association was organized to provide support to government and industry in the development of standards and specifications, as well as use of protective glazing products, for blast resistance, bullet resistance, and main force attack.

What We Believe
The members of the association recognize the importance of standards and support the development and use of standards in the area of security. PGC and its members work with government agencies and committees involved in security. Government representatives, architects and engineering professionals attend and participate in PGC activities.
