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).

(澳大利亚玻璃规范)AS Glass in buildings Selection and installation_百度文库

Butt glazing of adjacent panels in the same plane should not be considered as a support when using Figures 4. The analysis requires a knowledge of the critical elastic buckling moment MCRand values for particular situations can be obtained from standard texts on structural analysis.

The name, registered trademark or code of the manufacturer or supplier. The requirements for the glazing of doors are the same for residential and non-residential use. Design wind pressures for corner locations have been determined using the pressure coefficients specified in AS This Standard does not cover the following: The glazing is opaque, patterned, or a leadlight.

The traditional use of these buildings suggests their current construction and glazing practices are acceptable. The minimum length of each setting block or two blocks side by side shall be 25 mm in length for every square metre of glass area, with a minimum length of 50 mm.

Organic safety film or other coated glass shall be designed as monolithic glass units.

AS – Standards Australia

For balustrades, glass to be selected according to Section 7. Applied structural silicones shall not be installed adjacent to other materials that may be chemically incompatible with the structural sealant and cause a loss of adhesion or adverse chemical changes within the structural silicone that could lead to a loss of strength in the structural silicone.

When broken, the likelihood of cutting or piercing injuries will be minimized by virtue of the protection given to the nss, or by the limited size or increased thickness, or by the fracture characteristics of the glass. It should aas noted that a more economical design might be obtained by following the design procedures given in Section 3 of this Standard. There was also a need to recognize that accidents involving glass continued at a high rate and at a considerable cost to the community.


Consequently, the design analysis for glass selection requires consideration of the structural adequacy of the silicone used in this of application. Snow loads Part 4: The edges and surfaces of all glass types shall not be damaged during fixing. This gap may be weatherproofed if desired with ass H-section extrusion in plastic or rubber, or a cold-curing silicone building sealant may be gunned into the gap to make a flush joint.

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 sight size height is less than or equal to mm. Compliance with the requirements of Clause 6. As the area exceeds the maximum area for 3 mm monolithic annealed glass, thus 4 mm is the minimum thickness that might be used.

Ultimate limit state design stress at locations shown Away from edge MPa For a given application, the type and thickness of glass selected shall be in accordance with the most stringent relevant requirements of Sections 3 to 9 as applicable.

Since there are many possible configurations for glass stiffening fins, it is not practicable to provide a simplified design approach. Ordinary annealed glass, including mirror, may be used provided it is fully backed by and completely adhered to a solid material in such a way that all pieces will remain bonded to the backing in the event of glass breaking.

Code of Practice A code of practice is a set of rules which details how people in a certain industry should behave. Given the ultimate limit state design wind pressure P uheight H and the width Wthe depth of the fin shall be calculated using the following equation: They are positioned opposite each other between the glass and rebate, and glass and bead.

Schools refers to primary and secondary education facilities.


A designed clearance of not less than 3 mm shall be allowed between the top of the door and the bottom of the transom for assemblies up to 5 m high with not less than 1 mm additional clearance 128 every 3 m or part thereof that the height of the assembly exceeds 5 m.

For panels with a lowest sightline greater than mm above floor level and a panel 128 not exceeding mm, they may be glazed in annealed glass in accordance with Column 2 of Table az. You may also make one paper copy of this publication if required for each licensed user.

An example is where there is low-level glazing in the facade of a residential building at levels above the ground floor, but with no pedestrian access to the external faces of the unit.

An explanation of the methodology used in this Section is given in Appendix B. The design calculations shall be based on the actual glass thickness or, if that is not known, the minimum thickness of the range for the standard nominal thickness. However, this does not assume that the glass will not be broken under all human impact conditions, but rather it will not be broken under the most likely forms of human impact.

The multipliers and factors nzss are as follows: A band or marking is not 188 where any one of the following applies: Direct glass to metal contact should be avoided by the use of rubber or fibre pads and a nylon bush in the glass hole. Buildings associated with special activities, e. 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.

The steps are as follows: Introduction of new and increased areas of safety glass in locations subject to high risk of human impact.
