C.R. Laurence Wins Two USGlass Magazine
2013 Product of the Year Awards

CRL GRS Monolithic Tempered Glass Railing System and CRL-U.S. Aluminum Accufab Pro Tools win USGlass Magazine Product Awards

LOS ANGELES, CA - January 9, 2014 - C.R. Laurence Company stands as one of the industry's leading manufacturers of premier architectural glass and glazing products. With a dedicated team of certified designers, engineers, and product specialists, CRL is able to consistently provide architects, contractors, and specifiers with some of the industry's best products.

This philosophy has lead CRL to receive several awards and accolades including two Annual Product of the Year Awards from USGlass Magazine. C.R. Laurence secured two of the coveted industry awards including Best Glass Railing Product with the CRL GRS Monolithic Tempered Glass Railing System and Best Machinery/Equipment with the CRL-U.S. Aluminum Accufab Pro Curtain Wall and Storefront Tools.

The CRL GRS Monolithic Tempered Glass Railing System is the first of its kind to be certified by the International Code Council (ICC) Evaluation Service. It even helped to establish the ICC's ESR-3269 Report certification criteria. The system has been certified for interior and exterior use in residential, commercial, and industrial environments as balcony guards, porches, mezzanines, and stairways rails. This trusted certification covers the design and testing compliance with Section 2407 of the IBC and Section R312 of IRC.

CRL-U.S. Aluminum's patented Accufab Pro Curtain Wall and Storefront Tools are proven to cut costs and fabrication time on installing horizontal shear blocks to vertical mullions by 75% or more. These revolutionary tools can decrease overall labor time by eliminating mis-drilled fasteners, unlevel horizontal members, and costly measurement mistakes.

"We are proud to be a two-time winner of USGlass Magazine's honorable 2013 Product of the Year Awards. We will continue to design, engineer, and manufacture award-winning quality architectural glass and glazing products that our customers and the industry have come to trust," says Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence.
