SAFETY REGULATIONS AFFECTING GLAZING

 

Our staff will inform you of safety regulations relating to the use of glass in the home.

 

The key phrase in the updated British Standard "BS 6262: Part 4: 1994 Code of Practice for Glazing for Buildings" is "critical locations".

 

All glazing fitted in these defined locations in domestic buildings must be safe.

 

A "critical location" is that part of a door, wall, or other part of a building most likely to be subject to an accident involving human impact.

 

The diagram shows where these critical locations are in a dwelling.

All glass that falls totally or partially in the shaded areas of the diagram must meet the

safety standards of British Standard 6206.

 

This means that the glass must be toughened, laminated, wired, or have a plastic film coating. Ordinary annealed glass of minimum thickness 6mm may be used in small panes, provided that it is no wider than 250mm, and the

overall area of each pane is no more than 0.5m2.

 

For further information about use of glass in the home or workplace or you would like to make a general enquiry

call us today on 01179 562364 -  or email: kewglazing@gmail.com  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ordinary glass, other than in small panes as described above, is NOT suitable for use in critical locations,

as it breaks into sharp, dagger-like pieces, likely to cause serious injury.

 

Please cooperate when our staff ask you where glass is to be used.

 

It is an offence for us to sell glass for use in critical locations which is not the safer type. This is sensible legislation and we are concerned for the safety of our customers.
