Modern architecture values transparency with glass, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and transparent partition walls indoors. However, architects and executors must ensure that no one falls through the glazing, is seriously injured on impact or even that passers-by are hit by falling parts.
In the event of people or objects colliding with full-height partition glazing, the building component must maintain its structural integrity. It must not be possible to break through the component, and there must be no risk of injury to personnel from falling pieces or fragments. The types of glass used must offer adequate resistance to these kinds of impacts.
Our T46 partition walls with single glazing and T35 walls with double glazing meet the requirements of TRAV, and are tested to Part 4 of the German DIN 18008 standard.
