Glass and Glazing Standards

Glass and Glazing Standards

Glass can be used in any number of applications from windows and doors, furniture and fittings to walls and flooring.  To ensure that the glass used is fit for purpose, there are many standards which define everything from glass safety performance to its visual and aesthetic appearance.  Given the nature of glass as a product it is not always obvious if the product meets the required standards, some indications are given through stamps on the glass or near to its application, however others can only be sourced as a separate certificate direct from the manufacturer.

Below you can find all standards relevant to different glass products and applications:
