About This Item


Full Description

This National Standard of Canada applies to glazing materials that have been subjected to the test methods described herein. Such test methods are intended to demonstrate minimum performance characteristics designed to reduce the likelihood of cutting and piercing injuries resulting when glazing materials used in areas of human impact (see Annex A) in building and architectural applications are broken by human impact.

This standard does not address the strength, durability, fire rated characteristics, appearance or methods of installation for glazing materials.

The following are not considered safety-glazing materials under this standard: monolithic annealed glass, monolithic heat-strengthened glass, monolithic chemically-strengthened glass, monolithic glass-ceramic and monolithic wired glass.

The testing and evaluation of a product against this standard may require the use of materials and/or equipment that could be hazardous. This document does not purport to address all the safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this standard has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish appropriate health and safety practices in conjunction with any applicable regulatory requirements prior to its use.
