    1. Scope

    WK ???? 04.04.2018 DRAFT 1 Standard Practice for Design and Performance of Laminated Glass for use in the Construction of Swimming Pools and Aquariums This standard is issued under the fixed designation X XXXX; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon () indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. 1.Scope 1.1 This practice addresses elements related to load-bearing laminated glass used in the construction of swimming pools and aquariums. This standard includes performance design, and safe behavior considerations. It addresses the characteristics unique to glass and laminated glass. 1.2 This practice does not address glass pools constructed with monolithic glass, glass block, insulating glass units, glass tiles that are directly bonded to a non-glass structural substrate, acrylic, or other plastics. 1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance of the standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the use of this standard to establish appropriate safety
