Considerations

Installation
Exposed edges to be protected from moisture ingress. Coatings are glazed to the outside (#1) and inside of (4#) of the building.

Application
Care should be taken in specifying for applications where the presence of glass such as Optiview may not be sufficiently obvious.

How to Specify
Glass Thicknesses and colours available:

  • Clear 6.38 & 12.38 mm

Select from: Laminated

The glass shall comply with the following performance criteria:

  • U value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
  • Visible Light Transmission %
  • Glass Only Values
  • Total window

All glass is to be selected and installed in accordance but not exclusively with the following Australian and/or New Zealand Standards

  • AS 1288 Glass in Buildings Selection and Installation
  • AS 1170 Minimum Wind Loads on Structures
  • AS/NZ 2208 Safety Glazing Materials in Buildings
  • AS/NZ 4666 Insulating Glass Units
  • AS/NZ 4667 Quality Requirements for cut-to-size and Processed Glass
