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).

Setting blocks shall be located to equally support all panes of glass, and shall be fixed to prevent displacement during installation and service. Where glazing is replaced because of breakage or any other reason, it is mzs that the replacement glass comply with the requirements of the relevant sections of this Zns, unless otherwise permitted by the relevant legislation.

Windows and doors in heritage buildings as defined by the relevant State or Territorial authority see Note 3.

The Standard to aw the safety glass has been tested, e. The design pressure resulting from the weight of the glass dead loads shall be determined from Table 6. Refer to Appendix E for the fracture characteristics of various glass types.

The design graphs in Section 4 were developed using the limiting design stresses as shown in Table B1. A band or marking is not required where any one of the following applies: There shall be a minimum of 1828 fixings per zns. The sight size height is less than or equal to mm. Glass strength requirements are given for glazing, based on the tensile stresses developed on the surface of the glass.

We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities.

AS – Standards Australia

The ultimate design wind speeds for each classification has been obtained from AS When broken, the likelihood of cutting or piercing injuries will be minimized by virtue of the protection given to the glass, or by the limited size or increased thickness, or by the fracture characteristics of the glass. New section on installation requirements for glass. In situations where access is restricted to one side of the unit, then only the accessible side shall comply with the requirements of this Section without the application of the 1.


Minimum design loads on structures— Dead and live loads Part 2: The most significant changes of this revision include the following: The resultant ultimate limit state wind pressure shall be used in Clause 6.

The edges and surfaces of all glass types shall not be damaged during fixing. Interlinking handrail The handrail is non-load-supporting, unless a panel breakage occurs, and is connected to adjacent panels 12288 glass, or the building, where the adjacent panels are at least mm wide and three or more panels of glass form the balustrade.

However, consideration should always be given to the brittle nature of glass and the consequences of its breakage. In all other areas, annealed glass may be used. Toughened glass shall have a surface compression of not less than 69 MPa.

Butt glazing of adjacent panels in the same plane should not be considered as a support when using Figures 4. AS — Australian Standard? 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 selection of the thickness and width of the supporting annealed glass fins may be carried out using Equations 9.

The requirements of this Clause are in addition to the jzs for doors see Clause 5. Tables for faceted glazing having other included angles ad given in AS Supp 1. Doors of all operational types are included, e. It makes recommendations for design and installation practice based on proven techniques but does not restrict the adoption of materials or methods of design that can be shown to the satisfaction of the responsible authority to provide no lesser standard of materials, designs or constructions than obtained by using the procedures specified herein.


For rectangular glass panels having aspect ratio greater than 5, the two-edge support line shall be used. To prevent buckling, unless an analysis of fin stability is carried out, the jzs width shall not exceed 18 times the glass thickness.

It may or may not be in the same plane as the doorway. The supported edges shall be more than mm long see Figure 7. Section 4 may give a more conservative design solution.

This may be achieved either by ensuring that the band contrasts with the background or by increasing the height of the band. Buildings associated with special activities, e.

For annealed and annealed decorated glass panels in doors the following applies: Keeping Standards up-to-date Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and systems. The above values may not apply to structural silicones immersed in water. Individual pieces of ordinary annealed glass incorporated in leadlights may be used, to a maximum area of 0. The multipliers and factors ws are as follows: Toughened safety glass 10 mm 12 mm 15 mm 19 mm Laminated toughened safety glass 10 mm 12 mm 16 mm 20 mm Height is from base of channel or top point of fixing to top of glass or handrail with the handrail centred on top edge of the glass.

Appendix A gives a simplified method for determining ultimate and serviceability limit state design wind pressures. The silicone acts as both a structural bond and a weather seal. In some exposed situations, the wind load may exceed the infill design load and thicker glass may be required by the design live load.

For glazing in lift cars and lift wells, see AS Manufacturers should be consulted for advice relating to anticipated nickelsulphide minimization.
