Certifications and Standards

National, regional and local building codes/standards

The evolution of building construction has led to the development of codes and standards that mandate structurally sound, energy-efficient and environmentally conscious buildings. Many of these codes and standards apply directly to glazing components and should be thoroughly investigated prior to design finalization. A few of the applicable standards include:

  • Annealed Glass – JIS R3202:2011
  • Soft coating on glass – EN 1096
  • Glass Tempering – EN 12150
  • Heat Strengthened Glass – EN 1863
  • DGU – EN 1279
  • Lamination of Glass – EN 12543
  • Acoustic Values – EN ISO 717 -1
  • Heat Soaking – EN 14179
