ASTM WK73054

    Revision of C1401 - 14 Standard Guide for Structural Sealant Glazing

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1401 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: C24.10 | Committee C24 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK73054


    Keywords

    construction-site glazing; curtain wall; glazing; shop glazing; silicone sealant; structural sealant; structural sealant glazing; SSG;

    Rationale

    Justification for the proposed revisions is to eliminate the inadvertent bias that seems to exist in the current standard. The current standard either precludes or deters consideration of certain materials as suitable for structural sealant glazing that should be given consideration under like criteria for those materials that are specifically named as suitable. The standard also recommends fabrication processes that may deter consideration of certain materials for structural sealant glazing even where those fabrication processes may not be necessary.
