Available colours and thicknesses:
Select from: Annealed, Heat Strengthened, Toughened or Toughened Heat Soaked
*If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288–2021 or manufacturers recommendation.*
The glass shall comply with the following performance criteria:
- U value
- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
- Visible Light Transmission %
- Glass Only Values
- Total window
Glass converted to a safety glass by subjection to a process of pre-stressing so that, if fractured, the entire piece disintegrates into small, harmless particles. Toughened glass is a Grade A Safety Glass
Heat soak testing is a destructive test, which reduces the likelihood of spontaneous breakage by converting impurities such as nickel sulphide inclusions. Heat soaking is required in some but not all applications. If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288-2021 or manufacturers recommendation.
All glass which requires extra strength and thermal resistance will be heat strengthened. Heat strengthening increases the strength of annealed glass; however, it is not a substitute for toughened glass.
In the event of fracturing heat strengthened glass will crack and tends to remain in glazed position.
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
