Glass in the construction works - the topic of the new issue of BDS Compass magazine

 

Glass is around us every day but we do not think of the importance the glass to be strong and safe. Here the standards come to help, so the topic of the new issue of BDS Compass magazine is the glass in the construction works.

 

Various types of coated glass are presented - basic, special and processed. The conformity assessment of insulating glass units, the standards they should meet for resistance and reaction to fire, bullet, explosion and burglary resistance, pendulum body impact resistance, resistance against sudden temperature changes, wind, snow, permanent and imposed load resistance, protection against noise: direct airborne sound reduction, etc. are explained.

 

Information on the mirrors is also provided: how their durability is tested and what factors influence their long-term strength and quality. The glass stops the noise from the street and this is demonstrated again in the presented standards. The glass should be fire resistant so there are different test methods. Each glass product can be tested as part of a fire-resistant construction and standards have been developed for the different types of products.

 

The standards are the common language applied for the different concepts in the field of measurement. The use of standards makes us competitive and enables us to provide new and improved services to our customers, according to eng. Dimka Ivanova.

 

It is summer and we think of sea ... Standards help to make our seaside beaches safe.
