What is a Glazier?
Glazing consists of installing steel and aluminum framed windows, metal and aluminum panels in offices, factories, warehouses, high-rise buildings, retail stores and malls. Glaziers also install revolving and automatic doors. They are sometimes required to work from swing stages on high buildings.
Glaziers work indoors and out, depending upon the task to be done. Window fabricating and some installations are done indoors, however glaziers do much of their work outdoors or in unheated areas.
