Giroux Glass at Aria PokerGo Studio, Las Vegas, NV

Who Needs a Crane!

Although a crane is a much easier way to set oversized glass, it’s not always an option, given the installation setting and restrictions. When this recently was the case, our Las Vegas-based Giroux Glass glazing crew went back to their roots, and installed four units of glass at 990-pounds each, the old fashioned way…. Seen in this three-part video shouldering these half-ton monstrosities, are some of our Giroux Glass journeymen glaziers, foremen, and field superintendents, including: Robert Walker, Tyrone Wade, Jason Wagner, Brian Burton, Joe Barraza, Justin Kroman, Mike Morelli, Joel Marin, Kyle Irete, Mike Duran, Eugene Cornett, Brandon Johnson, [...]

The Grand Canyon Skywalk Turns 8

In case you’re looking for something fun and a little adventurous to do this summer, you may want to keep the Grand Canyon’s transparent, glass bridge – the Grand Canyon Skywalk – in mind for your vacationing pleasure. The scenic attraction turned eight this year, as March 28, 2015 marked the 8th anniversary of its grand opening. Flashback to twelve years ago, in the period from 2003 to 2007, when Giroux Glass proudly began installing the 83,000 pounds of glass used to build the bridge and make it the prominent attraction and engineering masterpiece that it is today. The Skywalk is a 70-foot, U-shaped, cantilevered system (a structure that projects horizontally into space, [...]
