Deterioration of insulating glass is defined as failure of hennetic seal, which results in intmsion of dirt or moisture, internal condensation or fogging. Deterioration of laminated glass is defined as the development of manufacturing defects, including edge separation or delamination, which materially obstmcts visions through glass.
Comply with recommendation of Flat Glass Marketing Association (FGMA): "Glazing Manual" and "Sealant Manual".
Provide safety-glazing materials in compliance with the Consumer Products Safety Commission's Safety Standard for Architecture Glazing Materials, 16 CRF 1201.
Provide safety-glazing materials tested in accordance with ANSI Z-97.1, when used in fire rated assemblies.
DELIVERY, STORAGE AND HANDLING
Protect glass and glazing materials, as required to prevent edge damage to glass and damage to glass and glazing materials from effects ofmoisture, temperature changes and exposure to the sun.
Comply with insulating glass fabricator's recommendations for venting and sealing, where insulating glass units will be exposed to substantial altitude change.
Float Glass: ASTM C-l 036. Type 1, Class 1, Quality q4, clear; thickness, as required. Class 2, Quality q4 for tinted glass.
Insulating Glass: ASTM B-774. Two sheets of glass, clear and dry air or gas filled space with --20degrees F dew points and Class A sealant-type edge constmction to maintain a helmetic seal.
