Glaziers install aluminum metal storefronts, window frames, doors and frames for entrances, curtain walls on high rise buildings, ribbon windows, glass and glass substitute. Glaziers also install handrails, glass, interior hollow metal, mirrors, shower doors and glass walls. As a glazier you will work at the edge of a building and at great heights. Glaziers report to job sites and work in hot and cold weather. It’s no office job.
Glass workers know all phases of glass fabrication: Glass cutting–laminated, single and double strength, plate and rough glass. As a glass worker you operate polishing and grinding machines, warehouse and handle flat and bent glass. Glass workers report to their individual shops.
If you choose to work as a production worker, you will spend most of your time in assembly shops.
