For dated references, only the edition cited applies. Solar gains that occur during the heating season can be used to advantage by considering window geometry and orientation and using suitable controls on heating and lighting systems.
Glazed areas enable daylight to be admitted to a building but at the expense of a comparatively high heat loss. Code of practice for special applications; — Part 7: BSInclusion of glass in the construction of tables or trolleys — Specification.
In addition to considering the risks of accidental impact, or where activities generate a special risk, the following criteria should be taken into account: The size and type of the glass and plastics glazing sheet materials, and in some cases the surrounds, might be affected by Approved Documents England and WalesTechnical Handbooks Domestic and Non-domestic Scotland and Technical Booklets Northern Ireland as detailed in Annex A.
Code of practice for glazing. Standards are also available from the BSI website at http: Confirm previous preliminary sb or, if necessary, modify and re-examine. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document including any amendments applies.
If these details are to be used for any other purpose than implementation then the prior written permission of BSI must be obtained. Glass and Glazing Federation. Revisions British Standards are updated by amendment or revision. It should not be quoted as if it were a specification, and particular care should be taken to ensure that claims of compliance are not misleading.
Free to use BIM project management tool provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset life cycle in level 2 BIM projects. High insulation values at other frequencies in no way compensate for a deficiency in these bands.
However, it is not the mean sound insulation value that is important but the sound insulation at the dominant frequencies of the relevant noise spectrum.
Conservation of Fuel and Power.

By employing panes of different thicknesses, this loss does not occur at the same frequency and thus an improved sound insulation performance results.
BSLighting for buildings — Part 2: The basic considerations are: Information regarding online access to British Standards via British Standards Online can be found at http: Figure 1 — Sequence of design evaluation for glazed areas 6?
The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has likely been sb by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS. In relation to glare from the sky, or reflected glare, it is possible to use special glass and plastics glazing sheet materials with reduced light transmission in order to produce satisfactory lighting.
Make preliminary selection of glazing system. Code of practice for safety related to human impact; — Part 5: BSGlazing for buildings — Part 4: These recommendations do not apply to: Code of practice for design and installation of sloping and vertical patent glazing.
Partially supersedes BS In response to orders for international standards, it is BSI policy to supply the BSI implementation of those that have been published as British Standards, unless otherwise requested. The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed when using this document – it is either: Code of practice for wind loads.
Theoretically, non-parallel panes should provide better acoustic insulation than parallel panes. NOTE 1 However, if the complexities of the design are obviously beyond BSa wind engineering specialist should be consulted.
Again there may be more recent versions of the document. Their committees work with the manufacturing and service industries, government, businesses and consumers to facilitate the production of British, European and International standards.
