Glass in Building offers a compact and illustrated overview of the material-appropriate use of glass in building construction and provides information on designing with glass and producing and using specialized glass products, as well as on the building and planning regulations that must be taken into account when constructing with glass.

hence a tensile bending strength that although higher than that of float glass is below that of toughened safety glass. DIN EN 1863 specifies a characteristic value of 70 N/mm2 for heatstrengthened glass made from float glass. The thermal fatigue resistance is also lower than that of toughened safety glass, but at 100 K is still higher than that of float glass. One great difference between toughened safety and heat-strengthened glass is the fracture pattern of the latter, the coarse structure of

They are intended to delay for a short time the effects of external violence on persons or objects in a protected zone. As long as the required resistance remains guaranteed, individual panes or interlayers can take on many different forms, e.g. with tints, coatings or printing. Furthermore, additional measures, e.g. improving the thermal insulation, determine the upgrading into a multi-pane insulating

Another approach is to fit additional elements such as roller blinds, louvre blinds, stretched fabrics or even photovoltaic elements in the cavity between the inner and outer panes. Such arrangements require a sufficiently wide cavity and vertical or near-vertical glazing, otherwise contact with the glass can 1 2 3 4 Heat transport in an insulating glass unit The sequence of layers used in practice for insulating glass

For example, this applies to post-and-rail constructions or windows with a fixed glass spandrel panel element. 1d 90° Group C3 covers category A glazing with a load-resisting handrail on the room side at the height required by the building regulations (p. 46, Fig. 2d). 75° 45° (21/21) 20/23 (41°) d1 a b c d2 d3 d 2 48 19/26 ( 36°) 1:6 ( 9°) e 0° Deviations from the square/rectangular form Glazed safety barriers along the edges of floors frequently join directly with
