This document gives a method of determining the design value of the bending strength of glass. It gives:the general method of calculation, and guidance for lateral load resistance of linearly supported glazed elements used as infill panels
NOTE   Examples of lateral loads are wind loads, snow loads, self weight of sloping glass, and cavity pressure variations on insulating glass units.
This document gives recommended values for the following factors for glass as a material:
- material partial factors, M;A and M;v ;
- factors for the load duration, kmod ;
- factor for stressed edges, ke.
Most glass in buildings is used as infill panels.  This document covers those infill panels that are in a class of consequence lower than those covered in EN 1990, so proposed values for the partial load factors, yQ and yG, are given for these infill panels.
The action of cavity pressure variations on insulating glass units is not covered by Eurocodes, so this document also gives proposed values of partial factors, 0, 1 and 2, for this action.
This document does not determine suitability for purpose. Resistance to lateral loads is only one part of the design process, which could also need to take into account:
-   in-plane loading, buckling, lateral torsional buckling, and shear forces,
-   environmental factors (e.g. sound insulation, thermal properties),
-   safety characteristics (e.g. fire performance, mode of breakage in relation to human safety, security).
This document does not apply to channel shaped glass, glass blocks and pavers, or vacuum insulated glass units.

This document specifies a test method for determining the mechanical viscoelastic properties of interlayer materials. The interlayers under examination are those used in the production of laminated glass and/or laminated safety glass. The interlayer viscoelastic properties are needed in order to determine the load resistance of laminated glass.
From the tensile modulus in particular conditions of temperature and load duration, an interlayer can be placed into a family that relates to a specific interlayer shear transfer coefficient.  This value can be used in the simplified calculation method described in EN 16612.
Informative Annex D explains the background to the determination of families relating to a specific interlayer shear transfer coefficient.

This European Standard assigns sound insulation values to all transparent, translucent and opaque glass products, described in the European Standards for basic, special basic or processed glass products, when intended to be used in glazed assemblies in buildings, and which exhibit properties of acoustic protection, either as a prime intention or as a supplementary characteristic.
This document outlines the procedure, by which glass products may be rated, according to their acoustic performance which enables assessment of compliance with the acoustic requirements of buildings.
Rigorous technical analysis of measurement data remains an option, but this standard is intended to enable the derivation of simpler indices of performance, which can be adopted with confidence by non-specialists.
By adopting the principles of this standard the formulation of acoustic requirements in Building Codes and for product specification to satisfy particular needs for glazing is simplified.
It is recognised that the acoustic test procedures contained within EN ISO 140-1 and EN ISO 140-3 relate only to glass panes and their combinations. Although the same principles should be followed as closely as possible, it is inevitable that some compromises are necessary, because of the bulkier construction of other glazing types, e.g. glass blocks, paver units, channel-shaped glass, structural glazing and structural sealant glazing. Guidelines on how to adapt the test procedures for these glazing types are offered in Clause 4.
All the considerations of this standard relate to panes of glass/glazing alone. Incorporation of them into windows may cause changes in acoustic performance as a result of other influences, e.g. frame design, frame material, glazing material/method, mounting method, air tightness, etc. Measurements of the sound insulation of complete windows (glass and frame) may be undertaken to resolve such issues.

This document specifies a procedure for determining the emissivity at room temperature of the surfaces of glass and coated glass.
The emissivity is necessary for taking into account heat transfer by radiation from surfaces at the standard temperature of 283 K in the determination of the U value and of the total solar transmittance of glazing according to [1] to [4].
The procedure, being based on spectrophotometric regular reflectance measurements at near normal incidence on materials that are non-transparent in the infrared region, is not applicable to glazing components with at least one of the following characteristics:
a) with rough or structured surfaces where the incident radiation is diffusely reflected;
b) with curved surfaces where the incident radiation is regularly reflected at angles unsuitable to reach the detector while using regular reflectance accessories;
c) infrared transparent.
However, it can be applied with caution to any glazing component provided its surfaces are flat and non-diffusing (see 3.6) and it is non-transparent in the infrared region (see 3.7).
Although transmittance measurements are included in this document, they are only necessary to check if the sample is non-transparent in the infrared region in the context of this document (see 3.7). If the sample is transparent in the infrared region, this document is not applicable.
The previous version of this document was based on the use of reflectance measurements using double beam dispersive infrared spectrophotometers capable of measuring over almost the entire spectral range of a black body at the standard reference temperature and determining the emissivity by the 30 ordinate method [6]. This version takes account of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrophotometers where the spectral range is limited. It describes a method whereby spectrophotometers can be used to determine emissivity if they are able to measure up to the 24th ordinate point and if they satisfy a noise criterion for this spectral range. It allows the inclusion of data from the 25th ordinate point up to the 30th ordinate point. A new informative annex (Annex D) describing the principles of absolute reflection accessories has been added to this version. These accessories are intended to be used by qualified personnel.
As FTIR spectrophotometers are single beam instruments as opposed to dispersive spectrophotometers which are double beam instruments (and thus able to correct for instrument drift), a procedure was developed by the European funded project, THERMES, to correct for drift. This procedure is described in [10] and [16]. Other categories of ordinate errors using FTIR spectrophotometers are discussed in [14].

This document (all parts) covers the requirements for insulating glass units. The main intended uses of the insulating glass units are installations in windows, doors, curtain walling, bonded glazing for doors, windows and curtain walling, roofs and partitions.
The achievement of the requirements of this standard indicates that insulating glass units fulfil the needs for intended use and ensures by means of the evaluation of conformity to this standard that, visual, energetic, acoustic, safety parameters do not change significantly over time.
In cases where there is no protection against direct ultraviolet radiation or permanent shear load on the edge seal, as in bonded glazing for doors, windows and curtain walling systems, it is essential to follow additional European Technical Specifications (see EN 15434, EN 13022 1 and prEN 16759).
Insulating glass units that are intended for artistic purposes (e.g. lead glass or fused glass) are excluded from the scope of this standard.
Vacuum insulating glass is not covered by this standard (see ISO DIS 19916 1).
Glass/plastics composites are under the scope as long as the surface of contact with sealants is a glass component.
NOTE   For glass products with electrical wiring or connections for, e.g. alarm or heating purposes, other directives, e.g. Low Voltage Directive, may apply.
This European Standard gives definitions for insulating glass units and covers the rules for the system description, the optical and visual quality and the dimensional tolerances thereof and describes the substitution rules based on an existing system description.

This European Standard specifies a test method, performance requirements and classification for explosion pressure resistant glazing for use in buildings.
The explosion pressure resistant glazing is intended to offer resistance against explosives with respect to human safety.
This European Standard concerns a method of test against blast waves generated using a shock tube or similar facility to simulate a high explosive detonation.
The classification is only valid for tested glass sizes of about 1 m2. Based on theoretical considerations and/or experimental work, the results can be used for estimating the explosion-pressure-resistance of other glass sizes.
NOTE 1   The resistance classes are not assigned to specific situations. For each individual case the individual who specifies, if necessary with the help of experts in the field of explosion, should be consulted.
NOTE 2   The protection provided by explosion-resistant-glazing not only depends on the product itself, but also on the design and fixing of the glass.

This European Standard specifies a measurement procedure to determine the thermal transmittance of glazing with flat and parallel surfaces. For the purpose of this Standard, structured surfaces may be considered to be flat..
This European Standard applies to multiple glazing with outer panes which are not transparent to far infrared radiation (in the wavelength range 5 to 50μm), which is the case for soda lime silicate glass products, borosilicate glass and glass ceramics. Internal elements can be far infrared transparent.
The procedure specified in this European Standard determines the U value (thermal transmittance) in the central area of glazing. The edge effects due to the thermal bridge through the spacer of an insulating glass unit or through the window frame are not included.
The edge effects due to the thermal bridge through the spacer of an insulating glass unit or through the window frame are excluded.  Energy transfer due to solar radiation is also excluded.
The procedure specified in this European Standard should be considered only when the thermal transmittance of the glazing cannot be calculated in accordance with EN 673.
The determination of the thermal transmittance is performed for conditions which correspond to the average situation for glazing in practice.
NOTE   Patterned glass is an example of a glass with a structured surface;
For the purposes of product comparison, a vertical position of the glazing is specified (see Clause 10).
U values evaluated according to the present standard are used for product comparison as well as for other purposes, in particular for predicting:
- heat loss through glazing;
- conduction heat gains in summer;
- condensation on glazing surfaces;
- the effects of the absorbed solar radiation in determining the solar factor (see A.2).
Reference should be made to A.3, A.4, A.5 or other European Standards dealing with heat loss calculations for the application of glazing U values determined by this Standard.
The determination of the thermal transmittance is performed for conditions which correspond to the average situation for glazing in practice.

The edge effects, due to the thermal bridge through the spacer of an insulating glass unit or through the window frame are not included. Furthermore energy transfer due to solar radiation is not taken into account.
The procedure specified in this European Standard should generally only be considered when the calculation method detailed in EN 673 is inappropriate or unsuitable.
The document for the calculation of the overall U value of windows, doors and shutters (see [3]) gives normative reference to the U value evaluated for the glazing components according to this standard.
A vertical position of the glazing is specified.
U values evaluated according to the present standard are used for product comparison as well as for other purposes, in particular for predicting:
-   heat loss through glazing;
-   conduction heat gains in summer;
-   condensation on glazing surfaces;
-   the effects of the absorbed solar radiation in determining the solar factor (see [1]).
Reference should be made to [4], [5], or other European Standards dealing with heat loss calculations for the application of glazing U values determined by this standard.
The determination of the thermal transmittance is performed for conditions which correspond to the average situation for glazing in practice.
