LOCATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SAFE USE

Howarth will automatically include safety glazing to all windows and doors in locations where safety glazing is deemed necessary.
If drawings are not supplied, please specify where safety glazing is requested.

GLAZING IN SMALL PANES (all critical areas)
The use of annealed (non-safety) glass is permitted in small panes. Small panes must have a maximum smaller dimension of 250mm and an area not exceeding 0.5m2 . Annealed glass in small panes must not be less than 6mm thick, except in traditional leaded or copper lights if fire resistance is not required.

THE USE OF SAFETY GLAZING
The architectural use of safety glazing is primarily governed by Building Regulations 2013 Park K: Protection from Falling, Collision and Impact. This is a national standard applying to all glazing work, including replacement glazing. It identifies critical locations in general terms only and sets the minimum standards of glazing materials acceptable for use in these areas.

Additional guidance is also provided by BS6262 Part 4. Compliance will also satisfy the requirements of Regulation 14 of the Health and Safety at Work Act
