Safety guide

ggfThe Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has recently launched a new publication entitled: ‘Safety and Security Glazing – Good Practice Guide’.

,The new guide covers the use of safety and security glass and glazing in buildings, including interiors such as shower and elevator enclosures, as well as windows, doors and curtain walling.

The guide also details the key performances of safety and security glazing when subject to manual, ballistic and explosive attacks. Other areas such as overhead glazing, protective glass barriers, glass stairs and floors are also comprehensively covered.

The guide is primarily aimed at informing architects, specifiers, building planners, surveyors and building managers.

Steve Rice, director of glazing and secretary at the GGF Glazing Executive, has been instrumental in the production of this publication, collaborating with several industry experts who sit on the GGF Safety and Security Technical Group. Steve commented: “This publication plugs a huge gap in the current industry information on safety and security glazing. Companies in the industry have been waiting a long time for a comprehensive authoritative publication that not only covers the subject in detail, but also supplies the technical datasheets for reference, to help companies manufacture and install security and safety glazing to prevent accidents occurring.”

Every GGF member company has been sent a printed copy of the guide, but it also available for download in the GGF Members’ Area of the GGF website:
