    New Guide for Structural Use of Glass in Buildings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.52 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide describes procedures to determine the stability and load resistance (LR) of specified glass types, for reliable usage of glass in structural applications, where the glass is supporting other elements or is required to provide safety restraint to live loads. 1.4 This guide describes load resistance factored design (LRFD) procedures for glass structures. Special cases include glass fins, drilled glass, notched glass, glass stair treads, glass floor panels, and glass panels resisting live load, including ballustrades.
