Description

This Standard specifies procedures for the design, selection and installation of glass in buildings.

Includes guidance for installation practice, based on proven techniques.

Scope

This Standard sets out procedures for the selection and installation of glass in buildings, subject to wind loading, human impact, and special applications such as overhead glazing, balustrades and glass assemblies. Glass strength requirements are given for glazing, based on the tensile stresses developed on the surface of the glass. This Standard does not cover the following:

  • (a) Glazing in lift cars and lift wells (see Note 1).
  • (b) Furniture glass, cabinet glass, vanities, glass basins, refrigeration units, internal glass fitments and internal wall mirrors not specifically covered by Section 5 (see Note 2).
  • (c) Buildings and structures with no public access intended for horticultural or agricultural use.
  • (d) Windows and doors in heritage buildings as defined by the relevant State or Territorial authority (see Note 3).
  • (e) Restoration and or repairs to existing leadlights.
  • (f) Special glazing applications which might fail due to the stresses other than tensile stresses, such as shear stresses.

NOTES:

  1. For glazing in lift cars and lift wells, see AS 1735.2 (Appendix H)
  2. For further guidance see HB 125.
  3. The traditional use of these buildings suggests their current construction and glazing practices are acceptable. However, consideration should always be given to the brittle nature of glass and the consequences of its breakage.
  4. In Australia, legislation requires products to be fit for purpose.

Where glazing is replaced because of breakage or any other reason, it is recommended that the replacement glass comply with the requirements of the relevant sections of this Standard, unless otherwise permitted by the relevant legislation.
