Advanced Window Glass Design (AWGD) performs all required calculations to design window glass according to ASTM E1300-09, ASTM E1300-12 and ASTM E1300-16. The Glass Association of North America (GANA) endorses Advanced Window Glass Design as being the best tool available to aid in designing window glass to resist wind and long-term loadings.  Members of the GANA technical council served in program development and each now uses a copy of the program. 

The below table describes the features of the Advanced Window Glass Design program.

Note: 
SDG will issue a license for AWGD for one year after purchase. If you wish to continue using AWGD, you must renew annually. Failure to renew the license will result in AWGD not operating. SDG must do this to continue operating and providing technical support. For every year your serial number has expired, you will be charged an annual fee until that amount equals the cost of the new purchase.
