Tim Nass, VP of National Sales at SAFTI FIRST®, explains that Mike will be our fire rated product expert “as fire rated glass and framing systems are complex. They are not only application driven, but require the full knowledge of codes.

Mike has proven his ability as a go-to glazing industry consultant. His addition will strengthen our service to the architectural community. He brings with him vast experience of consulting within the fenestration industry.”
