Glazing in Buildings Part 3 – Human Impact Safety Requirements

inactive
Organization: SNZ
Publication Date: 12 April 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 40
scope:

This Part of this Standard specifies minimum requirements for glazing in locations where it is likely to be subject to human impact.

Glazing within 2000 mm of the floor level is subject to human impact. 

Furniture glass, cabinet glass, general wall mirrors and internal glass fitments are not covered by this Part. 

Non-habitable building structures for horticultural use are not covered by this Part.

Glazing in lift cars and liftwells is not covered by this part (refer to NZS 4332 Non-domestic passenger and goods lifts).

Glass or plastics installed in sloped overhead glazing at greater than 15o from the vertical is not covered by this Part (refer NZS 4223: Part 1). 

In some circumstances, the requirements of other Parts of the Standard can exceed the requirements of this Part. 

Risk - the application of the requirements of this Part will reduce the risk of injury caused by exposure to glass as required by the NZBC Clause F2. The use of Grade A safety glazing material in any application in accordance with the relevant table will also meet the requirements of Clause F2 (refer F2.3.3(a)) but may exceed the requirements of this Part.
