YKK AP Takes Home 2021 Glass Magazine Award

Glass Magazine announced the winners of the 2021 Glass Magazine Awards. The prestigious glass and metal industry awards program honors companies in 14 categories, and this year’s winners present a remarkable industry that is still innovating, still growing and still building.

“This year’s winners show why glass is the best material choice for performance, strength, occupant wellness, decoration and more,” says Katy Devlin, associate publisher and editor in chief of Glass Magazine. “The winning projects run the gamut, from an unbelievable glass dome, to a multicolored hurricane-rated façade,
to a stunning and moving decorative memorial installation. Meanwhile, the winning products show how industry companies are responding to today’s most pressing demands.”

The winners for the competition’s eight project and six product categories will be featured in the September/October 2021 issue of Glass Magazine, and on GlassMagazine.com. Glass Magazine Award winners will also be recognized in a recorded presentation, to debut at the Industry Pavilion at GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Atlanta, Sept. 13-15.
