Let us explain The principal function of the Australian and New Zealand Standard , primarily a construction standard, is to enable the general public to be. You will be required to comply with this standard if you intend to construct a flexible annexe which has a glass component. Your glass component must be. NZS Superseding NZS This revision is an advancement on AS section 5 (criteria for human impact).

Draw 2 horizontal lines. The thickness shall be equal to the front and back clearance, to retain the glass firmly in the frame.

The fins shall be attached to the facade glass by patch fittings, and shall be attached to the building structure in such a way as to provide the facade with support against wind loads.

AS — revised and redesignated AS Glass or plastics glazing sheet material for installation into a building.

Also known as glazing bead or sealant bead. The amount of edge cover and edge clearance required shall be determined for each individual assembly. Panels mistaken for a doorway or opening.

The type 188 safety glass material. Other loads may include imposed live loads for maintenance and cleaning not covered above, which the designer may require.

A code of practice can be defined as a result of legislation or by industry regulators and bodies. Partly framed glazing, with the top and bottom edges framed and one or more ns edges unframed, shall be glazed in accordance with Table 5. Given the ultimate limit state design ax pressure P uheight H and the width Wthe depth of the fin shall be calculated using the following equation: Alternatively, the span B may be determined from the tables in to AS Supp 1.

Exposed edges shall have sharp edges removed. When using Tables 6.

Glass strength requirements are given for glazing, based on the tensile stresses developed on the surface of the glass. The ULS and SLS design wind pressures given in Table Nze have been determined for corner locations in buildings and may be conservative if applied to other locations. Introduction of new and increased areas of safety glass in locations subject to high risk of human impact.

Design wind speeds depend on the importance levels of the buildings as well as the wind region for the building, resulting in increased risk of glass breakage for glazing in lower importance levels. The structural integrity of these assemblies depends upon interaction between the glass panels, the linking and supporting components and the surrounding supports.

Your licence is a 1 user personal user jzs and the publication may not be stored, transferred or otherwise distributed on a network. Thus, the stresses that can occur at the glass edges under these restraint conditions were taken into account in the development of the design charts.

This means the fin has to have capped ends and setting blocks at both ends to isolate the various loads from the metal frame. The requirements for the glazing of doors are the same for residential and non-residential use. The committee has taken this opportunity to improve the design charts to include basic criteria such as the influence of aspect ratio and slenderness factor.

It shall also comply with the requirements of Section 5. For free glazing edges, the point load shall be applied adjacent to the centre of the free edge. The next highest thickness 6 mm has a minimum thickness of 5. Type c applies to gaskets made from extruded materials such as butyl strip, PVC, neoprene and sanoprene held in position by pressure upon the glass. The lowest sightline is higher than mm above the floor level in residential buildings.


For an example calculation, see Appendix B. This Standard will be referenced in the Building Code of Australia ; thereby superseding AS —, which will be withdrawn in 12 months from the date of publication of this Standard. The fins 128 be designed using jzs methods provided in the fin design Clause see Clause 9. Safety related to human impact.

They are required to prevent the weight of the glass from causing the frame to become out of square. Toughened glass assemblies require installation techniques quite different from those of framed panels.

Your glass component must be installed and maintained in accordance with this standard.

AS – Standards Australia

In all other areas, annealed glass may be used. The ends at supports are assumed to be effectively restrained against twisting. Ordinary annealed glass incorporated in leadlights in accordance with Clause 5. Storage, distribution or use on network prohibited.

This Section covers only the tensile stresses in glasses.

For greater design wind pressures, the glass shall be separately designed to withstand wind loading in accordance with Sections 3 or 4. All necessary cutting, drilling, notching, and edge-working shall be carried out to correct dimensions prior to heat treatment. The requirements of these Standards take ae over this Appendix. For a glazed panel supported on all edges, the point loading shall be applied at the centre.

With these factors in 1828, changes were made that have resulted in the introduction of increased areas of safety glass and the reduction of areas of ordinary glass in locations where accidents are known to occur at greater frequency. Permanent, imposed and other actions Part 2:
