Side scuttles and windows
|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
This CP gives a description of the procedures and requirements related to documentation, design and type testing applicable for TA of side scuttles and windows.
This CP does not set the design requirements to the side scuttles and windows. TA is based on compliance with design requirements given in the DNV GL rules and/or other regulations and standards. The CP describes the requirements and how to document compliance with the requirements in order to obtain a TA certificate for the equipment. This includes, where relevant, technical requirements for how the type tests shall be performed.
A DNV GL type approval certificate will cover one grade, i.e. one glass type (monolithic safety glass, laminated safety glass, etc.), with the possibility to include different sizes (or laminating sizes/constructions for laminated glass) as variants in the same certificate.
For synthetic materials one grade is related to one material (i.e. polycarbonate, acrylic, etc.).
Glass with different types of frames or frame constructions (e.g. inwards or outwards opening, side or top hinged) are considered as different grades and will be covered by different certificates.
A DNV GL type approval certificate is normally limited to one manufacturer at one production site, however, other arrangements may be agreed with the Society.
Type tests as specified in Sec.2 , shall be carried out and verified in one of the following ways:
at a DNV GL laboratory
at an accredited and recognized testing laboratory or a laboratory accepted by the Society
at the manufacturer's premises in the presence of the Society's surveyor.
The type test results shall be submitted to the Society in form of a test report according to ISO 17025 and the additional requirements of the relevant test standard for evaluation.
