No cutting corners here. More than 100+ Years of experience in the glazing industry has taught Brin many things. Chief among them: working with heavy glass and metal building materials—often at great heights—is a job best reserved for consistent, detail-oriented professionals.
Because of our solid history and reputation for excellence, Brin employs some of the most tenured glazing experts in the industry. As a close-knit family of companies, we are committed to the safety of our valued employees owners and union team members.

- “Full-time PPE” (hard hat, safety vests, and safety gloves) is required for any Brin team member who enters a job site
- Proper lifting equipment as required for each project
- High-quality, cut-resistant shirts and gloves for glass handler
- Company Safety Director ensures compliance with Brin’s own policies as well as OSHA safety regulations
- Gang boxes at each job site are stocked with first aid supplies, GFIs, specialty tools, and everything needed to help promote safety in the field
