Curtain walling - Resistance to wind load - Performance requirements

This document specifies the structural performance requirements of curtain walling under wind load, both its fixed and openable parts, under positive and negative static air pressure.
This document applies to any curtain walling product as defined in EN 13830.

Vorhangfassaden - Widerstand gegen Windlast - Leistungsanforderungen

Dieses Dokument legt die Bauleistungsanforderungen an sowohl ortsfeste als auch zu öffnende Teile von Vorhangfassaden unter Windlast bei positivem und negativem statischem Druck fest.
Dieses Dokument ist für alle in EN 13830 festgelegten Produkte von Vorhangfassaden anwendbar.
ANMERKUNG   Aufgrund der Vielzahl an den sich beim Einbau von Vorhangfassaden anzupassenden unterschiedlichen Aufrissdarstellungen und Maßabweichungen, ist es nicht sinnvoll, die vielfältigen Vorhangfassaden¬systeme und nach Kundenangaben gefertigten Ausführungen konstruktiv zu klassifizieren.

Façades rideaux - Résistance au vent - Exigences de performances

Ce document définit les prescriptions de performance structurelle des façades rideaux sous la charge du vent, pour les parties fixes et ouvrantes, sous une pression statique positive et négative.
Ce document s'applique à tous les produits de façades rideaux suivant la définition donnée dans l'EN 13830.
NOTE En raison des nombreuses configurations d'élévation et des variations diverses qui sont prises en compte par les installations de façades-rideaux, il n'est pas pratique de classer la grande variété des systèmes de façades-rideaux et de constructions spécialement conçues.
