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.

Explanation of the individual categories:

  • Category A:
    Glazings which have to carry away horizontal payloads, since they do not have a supporting parapet or raised spar of the required height for receiving horizontal payloads according to DIN EN 1991-1-1-1: 2010-12, 6.4 and DIN EN 1991-1-1 / NA: 2010-12,6.4.
  • Category B:
    Glass braces clamped at the bottom, the individual panes of which are connected by a continuous handrail of the required height.
  • Category C1:
    Railing infills that do not have to pay off horizontal payloads at the required height.
  • Category C2:
    Glazings below a load-bearing cross bar arranged at the required height, which do not have to remove horizontal payloads of the required height.
  • Category C3:
    Glazings with load-bearing uprights of the required height, which do not have to carry away horizontal payloads of the required height.

In the program you can calculate such a glazing according to the valid standard without additional necessary entries. You will also be informed about the standard specifications in the program, which must be considered in your project.
