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).

AS — 188 Standard? It was approved on behalf of the Council of Standards Australia on 28 November This Standard was published on 16 January The following are represented on Committee BD Keeping Standards up-to-date Standards are living nzx which reflect progress in science, technology and systems.
To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued.
Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which may have been published since the Standard was purchased.
Detailed information about Standards can be aas by visiting the Standards Web Shop at nzz. 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. We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or ambiguities.

This Standard was issued in 12888 form for comment as DR First published as AS CA26— AS — revised and redesignated AS Standards Australia All rights are reserved. 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. The objective of this Standard is to provide uniform direction for the use and installation of glazing throughout Australia to allow its use in legislation, and to clarify technical nnzs.
This Standard will be referenced in the Building Code of Australia ; thereby superseding AS —, which will be withdrawn in 12 months from the date of publication of this Standard. When revising this Standard, consideration was given to the existing human impact 188 requirements of AS — and NZS Human impact safety requirementsas well as BSGlazing for buildings, Part 4: Safety related to human impact.
Xs was also a need to recognize that accidents involving glass continued at a high rate and at a considerable cost to the community. With these factors in mind, 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. The Standard has also nzzs closely aligned with international practice by the adoption of selected criteria from international Standards.
The change to ultimate limit state design in the new wind code has necessitated the corresponding upgrading of the wind loading charts. The nxs charts are based on the increased ultimate limit state wind loads. 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.
The charts are unique as they incorporate all relevant aspects that influence the performance of glass in the one chart for each glass type and thickness. The most significant changes of this revision include the following: New design charts for wind loading based on ULS and taking into consideration panel aspect ratio.
Introduction of new and increased areas of safety glass in locations subject to high risk of human impact. New section on installation requirements for glass. New sections and detailed specifications for overhead glazing, balustrades, faceted glazing and fin-supported glazing.
The Committee considers that this Standard represents the best compromise that can be presented at this time. Further research and testing for safety will possibly result in changes which will be incorporated in future editions.
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.
Notes to the text contain information and guidance. They are not an integral part of the Standard. The rationale used in the revision of AS to include the ultimate design strength of glass is given below.

The Building Code of Australia BCA sets the importance levels and annual probability of exceedance for wind, snow and earthquake actions applicable to buildings and structures. Design wind speeds xs 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 previous edition of AS gave permissible design stresses for wind load as However, since the publication of the previous edition infurther research was carried out and it was found that the stresses varied considerably with panel aspect ratio and glass thickness.
The charts in this edition are based on ULS stresses of The limiting design stresses for each glass thickness used in developing the design charts are given in Appendix B.

Glass strength requirements are given for glazing, based on the tensile stresses developed on the surface of the glass. This Standard does not cover the following: Furniture glass, cabinet glass, vanities, glass basins, refrigeration units, internal glass fitments and internal wall mirrors not specifically covered by Section 5 see Note 2. Buildings and structures with no public access intended for horticultural or agricultural use. Windows and doors in heritage buildings as defined by the relevant State or Territorial authority see Note 3.
Restoration and or repairs to existing leadlights. Special glazing applications which might fail due to the stresses other than tensile stresses, such as shear stresses.
For glazing in lift cars and lift wells, see AS The traditional use of these buildings suggests their current construction and glazing practices are acceptable. However, consideration should always be given to the brittle nature of glass and the consequences of its breakage. 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.
Section 4 may give a more conservative design solution. For overhead glazing, glass to be selected according to Section 6. For balustrades, glass to be selected according to Section 7.
Glass shall be installed in ss with Section 8. 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.
For guidance on the use of this Standard for glass selection, see Appendix G.

Also known as glazing bead or sealant bead. The width of silicone used to bond the fin or frame member to the edge of the glass panel. Stained glass, leadlights and sandblasted, acid-etched, embossed and printed glass fall into this category.
Decorative interlayers may also be incorporated in laminated glass. They are positioned opposite each other between the glass and rebate, and glass 128 bead. Doors may be framed or unframed.

Glass with exposed edges has no protection from damage, and may cause injury to those who come in contact with it. Glass or plastics glazing sheet material for installation into a building. Often abbreviated to IGU or referred to as the unit. Nominal thickness is used for description convenience only and not as nzss exact manufacture size.
Panels may be fully framed, partly framed or fully unframed. Normally used in pairs located at quarter points of the glass width. A panel operable or inoperable located adjacent to a doorway. It may or may not be in the same plane as the doorway.
For panels supported on all four edges, it corresponds to the smaller of the sight size dimensions. Doors providing access to walk-in wardrobes are defined as doors. Toughened glass shall have a surface compression of not less than 69 MPa. Accordingly, the possibility of spontaneous fracture should be taken into account when toughened glass is used. Heat soaking may minimize the risk of nickel-sulphide-induced spontaneous fracture in toughened glass.
Manufacturers should be consulted for advice relating to anticipated nickelsulphide minimization. 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.
