In GLASGLOBAL® you have the possibility to calculate glazing with up to 16 point holders.
The professional statics software according to DIN 18008 contains all the necessary calculations and loads. With GLASGLOBAL®, glasses according to DIN 18008 can be dimensioned statically. All loads to be considered such as snow, wind, dead weight, traffic loads or climatic fluctuations in air pressure and temperature are tested during the calculation.
Stress and deflection are compared with the permitted values and displayed on a clear result expression.
Presentation video for the standard module according to DIN 18008 part 1 & 2: (Audio only in German)
- Static verification of glazing according to DIN 18008: 2012 Part 1 to 6
- Large number of pre-installed products such as glasses, point and clamp holders
- Calculation according to finite element method of any shape and storage of the glazing
- Maximum values of the deflection and tension of the individual washers for relevant and freely defined load combinations
- Verification of all load cases (snow, wind, dead weight, traffic loads)
- Wind and snow loads for Germany according to DIN 1055 with optionally available wind and snow load module for Switzerland
We would like to draw your attention to our new module for GLASGLOBAL® for the recently published Part 6 of DIN 18008.
Consideres the diaphragm tensioning effect according to DIN EN 13474-2: 2000
See at a glance what dimensions would be appropriate for your glazing, and how much is their degree of utilization.
The add-on "Product-specific shear module" is available in the expert software GLASGLOBAL® for the static verification of glazing according to DIN 18008. In GLASGLOBAL® the shear modulus for composite layers (e.g. Trosifol®, SentryGlas®) can be considered depending on the type of load.

The additional requirements for walk-on glazing are regulated in part 5 of DIN 18008. These glazing must consist of laminated glass with at least three panes. Both symmetrical and asymmetrical composite safety glasses can be calculated.
Line-shaped glazed units, which were defined in the TRLV until December 2010, have been found since then in DIN 18008 part 2. For example, the calculation is no longer based on a global safety factor but on partial safety factors. These take into account the uncertainties in the system, the loads and the materials.
The technical rules for the design and implementation of point-mounted glazing (TRPV) for vertical and overhead glazing valid until the end of 2010 were superseded by DIN18008 part 3. The standard distinguishes between two brackets.
Glass elements prevent the falling of people from a higher height, according to DIN 18008 part 4, crash-proof glazing. The standard here differs in three categories A, B, C, and is generally based on the once valid rules of TRAV.
