Over deze norm
1.1 This specification covers exterior windows, glazed curtain walls, glazing panels in doors and other glazed protective systems used in buildings that may be subjected to intentional or accidental explosions.
1.2 This specification addresses only glazing and glazing systems. This specification does not address the structural integrity and functionality of door assemblies. It assumes that the designer has verified that other structural elements have been adequately designed to resist the anticipated airblast pressures.
1.3 This specification is designed for all glazing, glazing systems, and glazing retrofit systems including, but not limited to, those fabricated from glass, plastic, glass-clad plastics, laminated glass, glass/plastic glazing materials, and organic coated glass.
1.4 This specification does not determine the assessment of a facility nor acceptable hazard ratings. Threat and risk assessment shall have already been performed and the acceptable hazard rating defined.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only. For conversion of quantities in various systems of measurements to SI units, see .
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
