With SOPs in place, we’re convinced to

open our shows in 1st half of ‘22: Thomas

Schlitt, MD- Messe Düsseldorf India

Schlitt Talks To GB About How Exhibition Industry Is Recovering From

COVID-19 Onslaught

Ahead of glasspro INDIA and glasspex INDIA slated for March 2022, Messe Düsseldorf

India MD Thomas Schlitt explains to Glass Bulletin how the sector is emerging from the

shadow of the pandemic and what steps are being taken to ensure safety and hygiene at

these events.

Mr. Thomas Schlitt,

MD of Messe Düsseldorf India

Thomas Schlitt joined Messe Düsseldorf India as Managing Director in 2015. During his tenure at Messe

Düsseldorf India, he has focused on the core sectors, strengthened the existing trade fairs in India and

also extended the event portfolio. Previously, Thomas Schlitt held management positions in international

business development and sales in the MICE industry at renowned German trade fair organizations, i.e.

Messe München and Nürnberg Messe.

Please tell us about Messe

Düsseldorf GmbH & its

exhibitions in India?

Messe Düsseldorf GmbH is one

of the world’s largest trade fair

organizers with its own exhibition

grounds and offers its presence in

more than 150 countries around the

globe. We organize 50 international

trade fairs, among these are 24

leading events in the respective

industry sector.

Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt. Ltd.

is a fully owned subsidiary of Messe

Düsseldorf GmbH which is a global

player both as a trade fair organizer

and provider of trade fair-related

services for exhibitors and visitors.

Messe Düsseldorf India has been

successfully staging established trade

India, FAMDENT Shows & Awards,

glasspex India, glasspro India,

pacprocess & food pex Mumbai,

India Essen Welding & Cutting, wire

and ProWine Mumbai. Besides

organizing successful trade fairs

in India, the company is also the

exclusive sales representative of

the Messe Düsseldorf Group for the

Indian customers to events of the

Messe Düsseldorf Group worldwide.

– India and the whole world

faced a very difficult time during

the pandemic in the last 18

months. The exhibition industry

is one the most affected. What

50 Glass Bulletin | July - September, 2021

Interview • 2

are your views about this?

Exhibitions and tradeshows have

survived, adapted and thrived despite

unprecedented times like pandemics

and other global challenges during the

past several centuries. However, the

COVID-19 situation has affected the

business adversely, particularly the

trade fair sector, not only in India but

across the world. We have witnessed

many trade shows being either

postponed or cancelled internationally

in the past 18 months.

Due to this situation new kinds

of platforms have been invented

in order to keep in touch with the

industry. Messe Düsseldorf India

has successfully developed and

implemented virtual events for

several industrial sectors. As industry

stakeholders, we are grateful to our

customers for their continued support

in our events.

– After a long period of pandemic,

things are getting better day

by day. When do you think

exhibitions in India will resume


Keeping in view the intensive

vaccination drive in India coupled

with the adoption of COVIDappropriate

behaviour with defined

Standard Operation Procedures

(SOP) at our trade fairs, we are

convinced to open our shows in the

first half of 2022.

– What are the new protocols to

be followed as an organizer of an


Messe Düsseldorf Group,

together with Messe Düsseldorf

India, has elaborated under the

title ‘PROTaction’, a comprehensive

hygiene and infection protection

concept in order to safeguard the

health of our customers, partners and


This hygiene and infection

protection concept has been

submitted to the Indian Authorities

for consideration at SOPs for reopening

of trade fairs in India.

– As we all know India has the

fastest growing economy in the

world. How can exhibitions play a

vital role for the industry?

India’s progressive economy is

anticipated to reach around $5 trillion

in the next few years with active

contribution from the manufacturing,

technology and services sectors.

The exhibition industry has always

played a pivotal role in strengthening

and growing the economy. Messe

Düsseldorf exhibitions worldwide,

including those in India, are of worldclass

reputation. Many of our events

have already established themselves

as leading events and are platforms

for the industry to create business

opportunities, to build cooperations

and to network.

– glasspro INDIA and glasspex

INDIA will be held in March 2022.

What are your plans to bring in

maximum exhibitors and visitors?

The tailor-made trade fair concepts

complement each other and create a

unique platform for the glass industry.

Comprehensive sales, marketing and

communication measures will ensure

that decision makers, stakeholders

and relevant media representatives

attend the events.

– You have added a new

segment to glasspro India i.e

fenestrationpro India. Tell us

about this new segment.

fenestrationpro INDIA is a show colocated

with glasspro INDIA to unite

the architects, fabricators, developers,

policymakers, façade consultants,

engineers, and stakeholders from the

Indian industry to drive discussions

on the design trends considering

energy-efficient building technologies.

– It is a very good coincidence

that United Nations has

announced 2022 as the

international year for glass. We

have glasspro India and glasspex

India in same year. Do you have

any plan to promote IYOG in your

glass exhibition?

By announcing the year 2022 as the

International Year of Glass (IYOG),

the United Nations underlined the

scientific, economic and cultural roles

of glass. Glass supports many vital

technologies, facilitates sustainability

and enriches our lives.

Messe Düsseldorf India, along with

its partners, is proud to host the IYOG

during our exhibitions - glasspex

INDIA and glasspro INDIA. We will

promote the importance of glass usage

along with AIGMF and International

Commission of Glass.

– You are organizing glasspro

India in close cooperation with

Glass Bulletin. Share your

thoughts on your association with

Glass Bulletin?

Glass Bulletin is India’s premier

journal for the global glass industry.

It is the ideal platform to publish

news, reports, product details, and

information about glass industry, both

in print and online.

Messe Düsseldorf India is proud

to be associated with Glass Bulletin.

This association of the leading media

Innovation Days, a virtual customer event on the latest

innovations and trends in architectural, automotive and

display glass processing from June 16-18.

Several hundreds of Glaston

current and potential customers

from all over the world registered

Glaston’s product and industry experts

shared their insights on the latest

developments in glass processing


Hosted from a production hall at

Glaston’s premises in Neuhausen-

Hamberg, Germany, two live stream

latest developments in architectural

glass and the other focusing on the

latest news from Glaston’s automotive

and display glass technologies.

Digitalization and automation

In the architectural glass session, the

digitalization of the flat tempering

process was demonstrated with the

latest innovations such as online

fragmentation prediction for every

glass and the white haze detection

using Artificial Intelligence (AI).

In addition, integrated lines and

a tempering process autopilot were

introduced. The autopilot reduces the

operator’s influence and offers process

control without parameters. A higher

degree of automation is also on the

agenda for the laminating process and

with the autopilot, the furnace will

learn to achieve the most optimal way

of running instead of operators having

to do adjustments manually.

The trend in flat lamination is a

growing use of structural interlayers

and for that Glaston introduced the

new convection control technology,

offering a significantly wider operating

window even with complex laminates.

For the insulating glass

manufacturing process, the new

arrissing machine MULTI’ARRISSER

was introduced via live demonstration

from the factory floor. Combining edge

arrissing, arrissing of the flat edge

and corner dubbing into one single

machine, the MULTI’ARRISSER

represents the proven cup wheel

technology for homogeneous and

uniform arrissing quality even at the

beginning and the end with a 5 to 10

times higher lifetime for glass edge

arrissing than any other arrissing


With a maximum speed of 60

m/min, the MULTI’ARRISSER is

the fastest single-head machine


In addition, the new


insulating glass units was

demonstrated, an automatic corner

treatment with spatula system and

corner roll for finishing to reveal

For swift customer support,

Glaston Virtual Engineer service was

presented with a Glaston specialist

advises and support customer’s

workforce virtually on-site using

mixed reality (MR) headset. The

solution gives cost savings of 10% -

40% per intervention as e.g. no travels

are required.

Highlights of automotive & display

glass session

In the automotive industry, thin glass

applications are a continuing trend.

For thin glass pre-processing Glaston’s

thin glass kit that can be installed as

an upgrade kit on new and existing

cells, was presented.

With significantly improved

performance parameters, the

new HYPERFEX grinding wheels

represents a revolution in edge

grinding, with a holistic view of the

overall process in pre-processing of

glasses for different application areas.

Furthermore, the new automotive

machine generation CHAMP Evo

with two optimization features was

introduced to the audience with the

first being a linear drive instead of the

spindle on the grinding machine for

higher precision and more dynamic

movements, and the other one a

honeycomb table on grinding machine

for higher precision and more

dynamic movements.

Showcasing developments in

Bharat Safety Glass

forays into architectural

glass processing

Invests Heavily In Machinery For New Venture,

Sets Up Unit In Jamshedpur

Safety glass manufacturer Bharat Safety Glass Pvt Ltd

recently ventured into architectural glass processing.


The company organised puja for

the new venture on July 16, 2021.

Bharat Safety Glass had started its

safety glass business in 1988. Initially,

it had vertical toughened glass plant

setup for the automotive industry.

The company imported a laminated

machine from world famous brand

Tamglass (Finland) in 1998.

After its installation, the company

started to supply automotive glass as

OEM to Tata Motors, Bajaj, Mahindra,

Hindustan Motors and many more.

BSG then set up a horizontal

flat and bend furnace of LandGlass

(China) in 2012. The company got the

furnace customised from LandGlass

to produce the best quality automotive

glass. Along with CNC cutting

machine from Intermac, BSG also

installed a CNC work station from the

same company.

BSG Managing Director Tulsi

Ram Bhalotia is known as very a

caring and down-to-earth individual

in the industry. Since long, he has

taken utmost care of every employee

of the company, treating them as

family members. He provides them

accommodation, food, all type of

medical facility, among others.

Even amid the crises posed by the

COVID-19 pandemic, the company

stood firmly with its employees, as a

result of which no one has left the

company since joining. This type of

example is very rare for any industry.

Bharat Safety, a well-known

entity in the automotive glass

segment, recently invested

heavily in machinery for architectural

glass processing, setting up a new unit

in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand.

The new setup is equipped with

the latest force convection tempering

furnace which is capable of tempering

9*16 feet jumbo size glass. It can

temper all types of high performance

glass available in the country.

It also has a jumbo size CNC

cutting line sourced from Intermac, a

glass tempering furnace was warmly

welcomed by the market once it was

promoted in 2012. The mid-infrared

heating technology rapidly became the

best solution for high quality Low-E

glass tempering.

Jinglass in India

Jinglass entered the Indian market in

2015 and gained the confidence from

more and more clients in the country.

At present, more than 30 furnaces

from the company are running

steadily and reliably in here.

During the COVID-19 pandemic,

conduct of business became difficult

in India due to the lockdowns. In the

Indian flat glass market, maximum

machinery is imported from China.

And since international travel is

prohibited because of the lockdown,

installation of machinery became a

huge problem.

But not for Jinglass. The company

has a team in India which provides

professional installation, adjustment

and after-sales service of tempering

furnace to ensure their long-term

stable running.

This was an advantage Jinglass had.

It has installed a record 14 furnaces

since January 2020 in comparison

with any other international

toughened plant machinery supplier.

Jinglass won the trust and

confidence of the Indian glass

processing industry within a very

short span of time by supplying best

quality machines and giving worldclass

after-sales and service support to

its customers.

WERU & LiSEC: Decades

of success based on deep


A History Rich In Experience, Sustainable

Thinking & Attitude Of Never Being Satisfied With

Standards Achieved

WERU, a traditional German company that started out as

a carpenter’s workshop, is the oldest window production

factory in the country. The WERU GROUP’s more than

1,000 employees produce over 400,000 sashes and

around 10,000 front doors every year.

Behind WERU’s success

lies a history that is rich in

experience, sustainable thinking

and the attitude of never being

satisfied with the standards achieved.

WERU performs continuous quality

assurance from production to

installation, certified by the RAL

Quality Mark. Production takes place

at the three German locations in

Rudersberg (Baden-Württemberg),

Triptis (Thuringia) and Salmtal


WERU quality made exclusively in


WERU GmbH is one of Europe’s

leading manufacturers of windows

and front doors and can reflect back

on a success story of over 175 years.

WERU was founded in 1843 and

the product portfolio was expanded

through the merger with UNILUX

GmbH in 2014, to include wood and

wood-aluminium products and create

a comprehensive full range.

Behind the success of the

companies lies a history that is rich in

experience, sustainable thinking and

the attitude of never being satisfied

with the standards achieved. Today,

the WERU Group positions itself

as a future-oriented company that

demands maximum individuality.

Modern windows, large lift-slide

combinations, front doors in all

material variants bring dynamics to

the home and in doing so enrich both

the façade as well as personal life.


WERU distinctly positions itself as a

complete solution provider. True to

the motto: Everything from a single

source. With LiSEC as a long-standing

business partner, the decision was

made in favour of a company with the

same objective.

The cooperation between WERU

and LiSEC began when WERU

started to manufacture insulating

glass. At that time (and still today),

LiSEC was the only company on the

market to offer complete systems,

from glass cutting to logistics,

including its own LiSEC software.

“Business is always conducted

between people. When two

strong brands come together for a

joint project, this means mutual

professional planning and concept

design, clean implementation by

both parties, and the pleasure of

being successful together,” said

Clemens Macarei, head of Product

Management at LiSEC and point of

contact for WERU for decades.

Trust as the basis for purchasing

decisions: WERU continues to invest

in LiSEC systems

In 2020, a new high-performance

machine for automatic laminated

glass cutting was put into operation:

the VSL-A. Following WERU’s

decision to invest further in the

laminated safety glass (LSG) sector,

the decision was very quickly made

in favour of a LiSEC system. The

purchase was made directly at the

trade fair.

“Data, facts and figures were very

important to us, in particular the

issue of material savings and how

the system adds up, in other words

the profitability. The confidence that

the machine would be a success was

very high, thanks to our experience of

outstanding cooperation with LiSEC

in the past,” says Jens Reimann.

VSL-A: High-performance system for

automatic laminated glass cutting

The VSL-A combines state-of-the-art

laminated glass cutting technology

and decades of LiSEC know-how in

automatic laminated glass processing.

Depending on the optimisation, up to

30 per cent higher cutting capacities

are possible. Automatic rotation of

the sub-plates is part of the standard

equipment, as is automatic residual

cut disposal, and reduces operator

intervention to a minimum. In

addition, two cutting heads ensure an

automatic tool change.

WERU places great value on


The topic of sustainability is very

important to WERU. The traditional

company focuses on sustainable

production and material processes,

as well as smart, future-oriented

products. Not only when it comes to

glass, but across the entire production

process. The VSL-A supports this

by reducing glass consumption. On

average, 6 % glass consumption can

be saved by the VSL-A.

Future prospects: Mutual further

development of LiSEC & WERU to


“Our cooperation with WERU is

characterised by a strong sense of

partnership. Both companies benefit

from the advantages of the other and

further develop together,” says Markus

Ensafi, LiSEC Sales Manager.

About LiSEC

LiSEC, with headquarters in

Hausmening/Amstetten, is a globally

finishing for 60 years. The service

chemicals industries with

production activities spanning

14 countries in four continents and

with sales to more than 150 countries,

Şişecam reported consolidated net

sales of TRY 13 billion for the six

months ending June 2021.

Şişecam CEO Görkem Elverici

commented on the company’s

results: “Despite the climate of

uncertainty caused by the pandemic,

Şişecam delivered a strong financial

performance in the first half of the

year, exceeding its performance in the

same period of the previous year.”

“Şişecam continued to create value

for its stakeholders with its proactive

decisions and practices that generate

value for its entire ecosystem. In the

coming period, we aim to continue

moving forward toward our global

goals. We plan to take the next steps

on our sustainable growth journey

with our transformation projects that

will render Şişecam future-ready,

our investment plans, and our robust

Şişecam’s 2021 first half-year

consolidated net sales grossed TRY 13

billion and international sales of the

company – comprising exports from

Turkey and sales from non-Turkey

facilities – accounted for 64 per cent

of total revenue.

successfully reached its ambitious

targets in the first half of the year

thanks to its robust corporate

governance capabilities and agile

practices. Moreover, it delivered

a strong financial performance,

exceeding that of the previous

year which coincided with the prepandemic

period. Şişecam recorded

financial success that surpassed

not only the same period of the

previous year but also the half-year

results of 2019, which refers prior

to the outbreak of the pandemic.

We will continue to conduct our

business activities by leveraging our

robust competencies and agility. At

Şişecam, we aim to create value for

all our stakeholders by modifying

our business processes and plans

afterwards, we focused on

implementing transformation projects

aimed at creating a more integrated,

digital, optimized, operationally

efficient organizational structure and

building Şişecam of the future.”

changes to our governance model.

approach,” he said.

“As a result, we no longer manage

our business processes on a business

line-basis, but rather based on

functions, such as Sales-Marketing

or Production. I firmly believe that

our new organizational structure

will ensure more effective and agile

management across our region of

operation spanning four continents

in various lines of business. The

experience and competencies we have

gained with a focus on product groups

will further expand Şişecam domain

of influence,” Elverici added.

Reaping rewards of strategic

currently reaping the rewards of its

transformation efforts, digitalization

practices, and strategic decisions

during a time when business models

have changed profoundly due to the

global pandemic.

He elaborated: “As a result of the

challenges accompanying it, the global

pandemic offered organizations an

opportunity to test their decisions

and practices and revamp their

structure to align with the new

market conditions. During this period,

Şişecam also had the opportunity

to test once again its readiness for

the unanticipated developments, its

ability to make fast decisions, and

adaptability skills.”

“The successful projects and

competencies we developed on

our digitalization journey played a

critical role in managing this process

effectively. In addition, our strategic

positioning with respect to our

production activities spread across 14

countries on four continents enabled

us to navigate the negative effects

of the disrupted global supply chain

much more easily. In the coming

period, we plan to further boost the

economic value we generate and

our global competitive edge with

investments and projects that will

prepare Şişecam for the future,” the

CEO said.

Creating value for stakeholders with

new investments

Şişecam, the founder of the Turkish

glass industry and a global pioneer,

remains committed to making

uninterrupted investments that will

create value for all of its stakeholders

and supporting the growth of the

industries to which it provides input.

Elverici added: “Despite

the climate of uncertainty and

extraordinary conditions created by

the global pandemic, we continued

our investments without interruption

in line with our priority to meet our

customers’ glass demand and to

create value for the economies.”

“In the coming period, we aim

to create sustainable value for

our stakeholders while expanding

Şişecam’s global footprint with

strategic moves we will make in

the right areas by continuing our

investments with the same approach.

As part of these efforts, we announced

that start of our first European

facility investment in glass packaging

industry, in Hungary,” he said.

“We expect this greenfield facility

investment with a capacity of 330,000

tons to be online 2023 and to reach

its full capacity by the year-end

2025. Capital expenditures focusing

on increasing our existing 2 million

ton flat glass production capacity

in Turkey by 25 percent are also

underway. We expect to achieve this

goal by both improving our existing

lines and investing in two new float

lines,” the CEO added.

Company Marks Dawn Of New Era With Traditional Ground-Breaking

More than three decades ago, ISRA VISION was founded as a spin-off of TU Darmstadt

and developed into a world-leading machine vision technology company in the

subsequent years.

The founder and CEO of ISRA

VISION, Enis Ersü, stepped

back from active professional

life at the end of June 2021. As

part of the company’s succession

are now being laid for the successful

future development of the company.

ISRA VISION AG is marking the

dawn of a new era of growth with a

traditional ground-breaking ceremony

to mark the start of construction

of its new headquarters building in

Darmstadt, Germany.

The new headquarters is located on

a property measuring around 15,000

development district with its historic

water tower at Frankfurter Straße. Set

to be constructed in two stages, it will

consist of three connected buildings

housing offices and development

laboratories, as well as demonstration

The project was designed by the

local architecture firm fs Architekten.

It will give ISRA VISION the space

it needs for future development

and a constantly growing workforce.

Designed to the latest energy

standards, the building will grow over

time and will offer space for around

960 employees once fully constructed.

As construction begins, the

company owes special thanks to

the mayor of Darmstadt Jochen

Partsch and the city of Darmstadt,

who provided excellent support in

the search for a suitable location.

The plans for the new headquarters

were put in place several years ago

by company founder Enis Ersü,

who recently retired from active

professional life.

In 2020, the globally active Atlas

Copco group joined forces with ISRA

VISION as a strategic partner, while

Glass was making only flat glass.

In 1999, it set up another plant to

produce bend toughened glass for

bus body. In 2000, the company

started making bend toughed glass

for sweets display counter. In 2001,

J K Toughened got a fabricated

horizontal bend glass machine for

making toughened bend glass. Soon,

the company made its presence felt in

good quality display counter glass.

In 2004, Mr Kang and his

partner decided to further expand

and established J K International

in Himachal Pradesh. Here it had

two vertical plants to make flat or

bend glass for bus body application.

In 2007, the company established

horizontal toughened flat and bend

glass and replaced the vertical plant.

In 2012, the company expanded

further and imported laminated

glass machinery from LWDY for J K

Toughened Glass Jalandhar. Then

in 2014, Mr Kang and his partner

HEGLA is showing the ProLam LSR, a newly developed cutting system for LSG equipped for the first time with the time-saving laser diode heating

technology as a system in series production. Up to 20 per cent and more productivity can be achieved with the new technology.

Demanding pane composites with up to ten-ply interlayer can be

separated in a short cycle time with the new laser diode heating

system. The precise application of heat to the cut contour means

that the surrounding area virtually remains cold, preventing later

delamination to the maximum extent possible.

Glass that’s as perfect as it gets – HEGLA-TaiFin’s claim regarding the performance of CTF

furnaces could not be more passionate. This is why perfect flatness and optical quality are

the hallmarks of these tempered panes.

“Depending on the integration, the

captured data on the product can be

stored either in the ERP or another

system. All it takes is one scan to

retrieve the information, call up a fire

protection certificate or reorder an

identical product,” explained Head of

Development Dr Thomas Rainer. As a

rule, laser marking is integrated into

operations step by step with the aims

of triggering production steps through

automatic scanning, simplifying

shipping processes or tracing process

steps from production and shipping to

the construction site. “With marking

and unique identification, it’s also

possible to fully digitise and track

production,” said Dr Rainer.

Real-time tracking for the

optimisation of integrated processes

“Capturing processes in real time is

also advantageous for higher-level

software such as ERP, MES, waste

optimisation and capacity planning,”

said Dr Jan Schäpers, Managing

Director of HEGLA-HANIC, the

software specialists.

The large amount of data

collected by scanning and sensor

technology can be used to analyse

and optimise processes in depth. The

display of information in a HEGLA-

the CTFe, the company offers a

unique tempering furnace in which

the thermal heat is transferred by air

circulation from closed convection

boxes. The glass surface is never

exposed to the direct radiation of the

radiant heaters, so that both coated

with the highest optical properties.

“The Viprotron and LiteSentry

scanners, for example, consistently

confirm the premium quality of the

above 95 per cent,” said Jarno

preferences. Even an entire area of

towers can be connected to each other

– to create energy for their occupants

and not only block the sunrays.

In the US, the trend in many

southern states is to dim the glass to

block the heat of the sun and reduce

the need for air conditioning. Europe

is more concerned with the colour

of the glass and how a building looks

on both the inside and out. When a

façade changes colours, it influences

how a building looks and helps save

energy. In any case, it is an ingenious

way to eliminate curtains or blinds, as

their impact is simply built into the

glass itself.

And no, this is not just another

fancy upgrade or expensive consumer

option, but an important move toward

smarter and more environmentally

conscious living.

Glass handling tips

Mishandling Glass Can Lead To Injuries; Simple Safety Measures Can Help

Avoid Untoward Incidents

Glass handling accidents are quite frequent in India, making human safety a big concern

for the glass industry, but the country still lacks proper guidelines and laws.

Glass is a very fragile material

if we talk about annelid glass.

When annelid glass breaks, it

breaks into very sharp-edged pieces

which can seriously injure people and

may even may cause death.

Proper handling of glass is a very

important part in any glass factory

or warehouse. Nowadays, glass

manufacturing companies are making

jumbo size glasses. These are very

heavy, and manual handling of big glass

poses risks.

The consequences for mishandling

glass can include punctures, crush

and strain injuries, severe cuts,

amputations and even death.

Observing proper glass handling

techniques is a major aspect of safety

in any workplace where large volumes

of glass are handled daily.

The cost of glass handling

equipment is nothing compared to the

value of a human life. There is a wide

range of glass handling equipment

available. It is a request to glass

associations and government bodies

to come together and frame proper

guidelines for glass handling.

Glass handling accidents can be

minimised if glass companies ensure

that every worker wears


Upper arms and shoulder protection

Gloves and cuffs’


Safety footwear

Owner of glass companies have

to shell out a lot of compensation to

workers who sustain injuries or face

any causality during manual glass


Glass Safety Tips for Manufacturers

and Commercial Glass Handling

Glass is a fragile material with a

plethora of applications in residential

and commercial projects. The glass

industry is growing with every

passing day. More and more glass

fabricators and glaziers are entering

the market.

However, handling glass in its

primitive form is not a child’s play.

Mishandling the glass sheets can

result in severe cuts, injuries,

and even death. We can avoid

such accidents by following safety

measures. The experts have stated

strict precautionary rules for

handling the glass. Here, we will

discuss the safety tips when dealing

with glass.

Glass Handling Tips• 2

Safety tips for employees

In the glass industry, employees

who are directly handling glass

sheets are particularly vulnerable

to accidents. So a few general rules

and tips for workers:

Glass carrying techniques

Workers are often involved in loading

and unloading glass sheets. Make

sure to carry glass on your side. Use

both hands to handle the glass sheet

no matter how lightweight it is. It

seems easy though, but never carry

glass sheet under your arm or over

your head. Always use two employees

to move larger glass sheets. Don’t rush,

move slowly and in harmony with the

other person.

Always wear safety gear before

handling glass. Check the glass before

moving it. Make sure that it isn’t

damaged to avoid any spontaneous

breakage. Use the proper hand and

body positions to handle the glass.

Keep the corners of the glass sheets

safe by avoiding bumping into any


When setting the glass on the floor,

gently place the long side of the glass

first. Prefer placing the glass on soft

or padded surfaces. You can also use

blankets or other cushioning agents to

keep the glass safe.

Handling broken glass

Broken glass is a common sight in

the glass industry. Even with safety

measures, it’s subjective that you

would see some glass pieces on the

floor. Therefore, it’s necessary that

everyone who enters a glass unit has

safety shoes on. Sometimes, small

and almost invisible shards are on

the floor that are enough to cause an


If you see broken glass, don’t stand

or walk on it, even with safety shoes

on. Never crush broken glass into

smaller pieces with foot or hand.

Don’t pick up broken glass with your

hands. Never hold on to the broken

glass sheet to try and stop it from

breaking any further. Move out of the

way and go to a safe space.

Working with glass

Working with glass is quite

challenging. You have to follow

multiple safety guidelines to keep

yourself safe. Educate yourself with

the safety protocols. Be mindful of the

hazards all the time. Be aware of your

surroundings and the team members

all the time. Inspect each element for

any potential hazard before using it.

Keep the simple safety rules in mind

and use them to avoid any undesirable


One of the most popular tasks

is glass cutting. If you are handling

92 Glass Bulletin | July - September, 2021

Glass Handling Tips• 4

orders of custom cut glass, mirror

cut to size, glass shelves cut to size,

or tempered glass cut to size, make

sure to use safety goggles and gloves.

Creating custom cut glass is trickier

than any other job so make sure

to take necessary precautionary

measures. The manufacturing process

of tempered glass cut to size is also

quite extensive and grave, so be

conscious of the risks.

Glass goes through different

manufacturing steps to achieve the

custom cut. Different chemicals are

also used during the process, some

of which can be toxic. Handling such

chemicals requires special care that

everyone should take.

Handling undesirable situations

Even if the work environment is

ideal and everyone is following safety

protocols, accidents may happen. The

possibility of human error is always

there. But managing an undesirable

situation is what makes all the


Ideally, there should be a doctor or a paramedic’s team on duty all the time

who can handle any such situation. Workers should also be trained for providing

first-aid to their fellow colleagues.

In case of an accident, take the victim to a safe place. Immediately call a

doctor, get help from the related personnel, and give him the necessary first-aid.

Using safety equipment

Special safety gear is designed for

glass industry workers according to

their job specifications. The glass

handlers usually use cut-resistant

gloves, sleeves, and aprons while

the glass moulders use heatresistant

safety equipment.

Make sure to wear proper safety

equipment. Replace any damaged


Prevention is better than cure

so never twirl thumbs on wearing

the safety equipment. Supervisors

should direct strict orders for

workers to put on safety gear.

They should ensure that safety

gear is functional and the work

environment is safe for workers.

In brief!

It’s the duty of the supervisors and directors to educate their staff on risks

and safety measures. Workers should receive proper training before getting

into the working field. Make sure to meet safety protocols. It’s better to be

safe than sorry!

up with a unique slide and swing

doors system, ‘ZenFold’, in the Indian


The swing and slide doors which is

also known as wave doors/open max/

magna-slide systems are like bi-fold

doors, but each shutter can slide inline

ZenFold is a state-of-the-art

multiple panel door that allows

owners to maximize their living space

and transforms ordinary rooms to

open up spaces in a way no other

With Zenfold, users get to decide

how many panels are opened or closed

at any a time. By having independent

panels, this latest system adapts to

Generally, the height of the doors is

restricted by the roof height which is

around 3m to 3.5m in India, of which

the door height is normally between

2.1m to 2.4m.

Multi-Track Slider: 2 to 6

shutters or more with 33% to

50% opening


Casement Doors: Generally,

width is limited to 900mm with

Doors with shutters sliding and

folding to one or either side of

the opening. Very useful as it

offers excellent ventilation and

utility for balconies and patios
