New Practice for Standard Practice for Determining Load Resistance of Vacuum Insulating Glass in Buildings

1. Scope

This practice describes procedures to determine the load resistance (LR) of combinations of glass types used in a vacuum insulating glass (VIG) unit, exposed to a uniform lateral load of short or long duration, for a specified probability of breakage


VIG; Vacuum Glass; Vacuum Insulating Glass


This standard will be used to evaluate VIG units with defined load resistance applicable to VIG units. The current load resistance for IG units or lami units are not adequate to determine VIG load resistance.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
