Glass in building. Glazing recommendations. Assembly principles for vertical and sloping glazing

Status : Current, Under review   Published : July 2016



This European Standard defines principles of glazing as well as recommendations on the selection of components, e.g. frame sections, beads, drainage holes, etc., for fitting glazing into frames of any material.

This European Standard applies to all basic types of edge supported vertical and sloping glazing systems, in all types of fixed or opening frames used in buildings.

This European standard specifies also the functions, requirements and installation of glazing blocks within a frame during its manufacturing, transportation, installation and operational life. The standard applies to glazing blocks used for all types of flat or curved glass, as well as to derived processed types of glass.

For certain glass products, e.g. fire resistant glazing, security glass, other or additional requirements, rules or recommendations may apply.

The standard is applicable to European climate conditions.

This European Standard does not apply to the following:

  • glass blocks and glass pavers ( EN 1051‑1);

  • channel-shaped glass ( EN 572‑7);

  • structural sealant glazing (see EN 13022‑1 and EN 13022‑2 and ETAG 002);

  • adhesively bonded glazing in window;

  • point fixed glazing;

  • greenhouses (see EN 13031‑1).

As this standard gives basic assembly principles only, national requirements, rules or recommendations may also apply.
