The recommended glass for Glass Railings would be a 5 + 5 mm transparent Laminated Glass or a 5 + 5 mm matt Laminated Glass, and in case of being in great heights or places with high traffic of people we recommend a 5 + 5 mm Laminated Glass and Tempered, send your consult at firstname.lastname@example.org
On railings with "open" glass without vertical supports, laminated and tempered glass should be installed.
Laminated glass: It consists of the union of several sheets of glass by means of an intermediate film made with polyvinyl butyral (PVB), ethyl-vinyl-acetate (EVA) and with resins activated by ultraviolet light or simply by mixing its ingredients. Butyral / PVB: Polymer with great adhesion and durability. All construction materials must meet safety standards.
In this case, the Basic document is the DB-SUA in its section 188.8.131.52 specifies that if the height, from the support base on the slab, is less than 6 meters, the height must be 0.9 m, while if is greater than 6 meters, the railing height must be 1.1 m. The height shall be measured vertically from the ground, and in the case of stairs, from the incline line defined by the vertices of the steps to the upper limit of the glass railing.
For pool areas
The height will be 1.2 m and a load of 0.5 kN / m at 1.2m is required. In addition to this, using deep anodized aluminum fastening systems,> 20 microns, rot-resistant, stainless and non-bulking wedges and rubbers, as well as the use of A4 stainless steel screws, seems consistent with the environment in the environment. that is going to be installed.
Do not forget that the railings fixed with a stainless steel U generate a physical barrier due to their connection to the ground, this can generate a "fish tank" in case of extreme rain. Therefore, it is advisable to plan a drainage system.
We are talking about a very attractive security system, both for architects and users, due to the breadth it generates in the spaces where it is installed, but on the other hand, there is a great lack of knowledge about which glass to use.
