Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers installation procedures for lock-strip gaskets and for infill glazing materials in lock-strip gasket glazing applications used in building walls. The prime performance considerations are weathertightness against air and water infiltration, and structural integrity under wind loads. H-type gasket and reglet-type gasket are types of single-opening gasket systems which should be installed according to the specified requirements. Installation of multiple-opening gasket systems shall be classified as: unsupported vertical ladder assembly; unsupported horizontal ladder assembly; supported vertical ladder assembly; supported horizontal ladder assembly; and grid assembly. Installation of stick system, glass or panel into gasket, and lock-strip shall be in accordance with the requirements specified.
