New Configurator from AGC Glass Provides Powerful Tool to Architects, Fabricators

Alpharetta, GA. September 9, 2020 — AGC Glass North America, one of the largest manufacturers of glass and glass-related products in North America, is empowering architects and fabricators to efficiently and effectively bring their vision to life with the launch of the new AGC Configurator. A robust, user-friendly online tool, the AGC Configurator allows design professionals to select, review, and specify the optimal glass solution for their projects based on the customized specifications they create.

“At AGC, we are committed to delivering game-changing solutions that can bring enduring value to our customers’,” said Ben Wojcikiewicz, product manager for AGC. “Our new configurator is a huge leap forward for designers who need to be efficient, on point, and on spec with each project they take on.”

Available on the AGC website, the new AGC Configurator provides architects and fabricators with the ability to create their own profile and preferences. They then enter a drag-and-drop, user-intuitive environment that simplifies the specification process for glass products. As they review the many solutions manufactured by AGC, they can gather and synthesize granular details so they can specify the right product for the job. Once users make their selections, they receive a detailed summary on all the key metrics connected to a specific glass product – light management, energy efficiency, acoustical characteristics, and thermal performance. This includes a visualization of the selected product.

“Each project comes with its own set of criteria, and in each instance, designers must be able to communicate, document and specify the products they’ve selected” added Wojcikiewicz. “In essence, the AGC configurator provides architects, fabricators, and glaziers with a detailed report to allow for clear specifications during the design and tender phase and to show compliance during the submittal phase.”

Users of the AGC Configurator can also create their own library of projects housed under their individual profile and then share those projects with their clients.

AGC has already scheduled the rollout of improvements to the new configurator, which will be available in the coming months. These include rendering capabilities, acoustics calculators, and advanced product finders.
