Description

This Standard specifies the functional properties of various safety glazing materials, including toughened glass, laminated glass, wired glass, organic-coated glass and plastic.

Two grades are covered, with different impact performance levels. Other requirements include size tolerances, weathering and ageing performance.

Test methods are given in some appendices, while others deal with sampling, acceptance procedures and notes on safe performance criteria and human dynamics data.

Scope

This Standard sets out test requirements for classification of safety glazing materials for use in buildings.

The test requirements for the different glazing materials are designed to promote safety and to reduce or minimize the likelihood of cutting and piercing injuries from human impact.
