BS 6262-2:2005

Glazing for buildings. Code of practice for energy, light and sound

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : October 2005



This part of BS 6262 gives information and recommendations for vertical glazing in the external walls and interiors of buildings, with respect to their effect on the energy, light and sound environments in the building.

These recommendations do not apply to:
a) patent glazing (see BS 5516-1)
b) glass in non-vertical applications (see BS 5516-2)
c) glazing for furniture and fittings (see BS 7376 and BS 7449)
d) glazing for commercial greenhouses (see BS 5502-21)
e) glazing for domestic greenhouses.

Requirements for standards of workmanship for glazing have been published separately as BS 8000-7 and therefore this subject is not dealt with in this standard.
