About the Topic:
Mark’s presentation will review structural glazing requirements and how they pertain to the building envelope. This will include both a basic understanding of various glass types, when they should be used and how to check for them. The goal of this presentation is to help bridge the gap between building envelope requirements and structural requirements of the glazing systems. Discussion will include an overview of structural connection details, component tie-in and other fastening that requires penetration of the building envelope. Glass guardrails, guard caps and handrail attachments will also be covered, with their respective requirements.
