BS 6262-4:2018

Glazing for buildings. Code of practice for safety related to human impact

Status : Current   Published : May 2018



What is this standard about?

This part of BS 6262 gives safety recommendations for the use of glass and plastics glazing sheet materials in locations likely to be subject to accidental human impact. This part of BS 6262 also gives recommendations for the type of glass or plastics glazing sheet materials to be used in sloping overhead glazing (these recommendations replace those in BS 5516-2:2004).

The recommendations are intended to reduce impact-related injuries and in particular the risk of cutting and piercing injuries. In the case of sloping glazing, this also covered the risk from falling glazing.

These recommendations do not apply to:

a) glazing for furniture and fittings (see BS EN 12521 and BS EN 14749);

b) glazing for commercial greenhouses (see BS 5502‑21); and

c) glazing for domestic greenhouses.
