Specifies procedures for the selection of glass to comply with wind loading requirements and human impact considerations for framed and unframed glass assemblies of limited dimensions. The Standard also includes installation guidelines and appendices for design of glass fins as well as the interpretation of human impact considerations and wind load design charts.

This Standard sets out procedures for the selection and installation of glass in buildings, according to the type of material and the minimum thickness allowable for a given area (or maximum area allowable for a given thickness) for a single panel not exceeding 15 m2glazed area and for unidirectional glazing spans not exceeding 4 m.NOTES:1 This Standard does not preclude the use of materials or methods of design and installation where such materials or methods of design can be demonstrated to be equal to or superior to those specified in this Standard.2 This Standard will be referenced in the Building Code of Australia by way of BCA Amendment 7 intended for publication in November 1994, thereby superseding the previous edition, AS 1288- 1989, which will be withdrawn 6 months from the date of issuance of BCA Amendment 7. Users are advised that when BCA Amendment 7 is issued, it will not necessarily be gazetted in each State/Territory at the time of printing.
