In Australia we have numerous standards for variations and applications of glass used within our infrastructures.
These standards ensure that all sites and venues are safe, even if the glass is broken it will continue to remain in tact to avoid damaging buildings and injuring people.
The Australian Standard, AS/NZA 2208:1996 specifies the functional properties for various safety glazing materials used on construction sites and on buildings.
This standard ensures that all the glass is put through the same procedure to guarantee material safety after breakage.
