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).

For higher induced stress, correspondingly higher glass type factors may be used provided the level of safety is not reduced.

As the area exceeds the maximum area for 3 mm monolithic annealed glass, thus 4 mm is the minimum thickness that might be used. Detailed calculations based on specific buildings may yield higher or lower pressures.

Notes to the text contain information and guidance. To determine the glass thickness required nz resist the design point live loads, Tables 6. Wind loads Part 3: Each tier of panels except the top is suspended from the tier above, and the whole assembly, except for the doors, is suspended from and rigidly connected to a substantial structural member of the building, which has to be capable of fully ad the deadweight of the assembly in addition to the forces due to wind loading.

Keeping Standards up-to-date Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and systems. A non-hardening sealant, plastic, or neoprene rubber or propriety glazing system shall be used. The glass itself becomes a load-bearing material withstanding the stresses inherent in such an assembly.

For overhead glazing, glass to be selected according to Section 6. The next minimum glass thickness available to accommodate the calculated bite thickness of silicone shall be used. The ultimate limit state design wind pressure shall be not greater than 1. The rebate shall be deep enough to provide edge cover of 1 to 1.


A flexible annexe means an annexe made entirely of flexible material except jzs the supporting frame and any windows or doors, which may be made of flexible or rigid material. As the required span is less than mm, therefore the minimum nominal glass thickness required is 5 mm.

A certificate of adequacy from an approved qualified engineer experienced in the design of toughened glass assemblies may be required by the local government authority.

Such marking is to ensure that an assessment nzx be made that the interpolation has been properly carried out. Alternatively, the printed Catalogue provides information current at 1 January each year, and the monthly magazine, The Global Standard, has a full listing of revisions and amendments published each month.

The requirements of this Clause are less than those of Clause 5. No part of this work may be reproduced or copied in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopying, without the written permission of the publisher.

Glass with exposed edges has no protection from damage, and may cause 188 to those who come in contact with it. The grade of test classification, i. The simplified provisions of this Section are applicable provided the following limiting parameters are satisfied: Buildings and structures with no public access intended for horticultural or agricultural use.

Consequently, each design must be analysed in accordance with accepted engineering principles.

When applied to glazing, safety organic coatings shall extend to the edge of the glass or within 3 mm of the sightline and shall be permanently bonded to the glass. The nxs edges shall be more than mm long see Figure 7. The structural integrity of these assemblies depends upon interaction between the glass panels, the linking and supporting components and the surrounding supports.

The fin shoes have to be securely anchored to the structure, nzd or both and support all the loads. The above values may not apply to structural silicones immersed in water. Glass in accordance with Table 7. The steps are as follows: Draw a horizontal line drawn on figure 4. AS — revised and redesignated AS Each block shall support the full thickness of the glass.


During assembly, care shall be exercised at all fixing points, and fibre aas and gaskets shall be used to ensure that there is no glass-to-glass or glass-to-metal contact. Fixings should be suitable for clamping the glass into position and capable of withstanding design loads and vibration.

The most significant changes of this revision include the following: Documents referenced for informative purposes are listed in Appendix H. The sight size height is less than or equal to mm.

Storage, distribution or use on network prohibited. New design charts for wind loading based on ULS and taking into consideration panel aspect ratio. The new charts are based on the increased ultimate limit state wind loads. Thus, the stresses that can occur at the glass edges under these nze conditions were taken into account in the development of the design charts.

The standard provides uniform direction for the use and installation of glazing. Normally these are used with infill balustrades. The critical design parameter is the minimum fin bearing length or edge cover of the fin. The application of this Section requiring the use of either safety glass or thicker annealed glass will reduce the risk of injury from human impact. Wind actions Safety glazing materials in buildings Insulating glass units Quality requirements for cut-to-size and processed glass Specification for linseed 128 putty for use in wooden frames Rubber used in preformed gaskets for weather exclusion from buildings Part 1: For other installations, first principle design methods shall be used.

However, consideration should always be given to the brittle nature of glass and the consequences of its breakage.
