Glass thickness requirements – AS1288

At Nuline windows and doors, we manufacture commercial aluminium units which allow us to build our products with huge spans of glass. AS1288-2006 is the Australian standard which determines the glass types and glass thickness requirements for all buildings across the country. Adherence to AS1288-2006 implies that we often need to use thicker glass for our large windows and doors. We constantly refer to the following table which describes maximum areas for safety glass (for fully framed windows and doors).

Maximum Area of Safety Double Glazed Toughened Glass:

Note though that when it comes to toughened glass, we often opt to go one step above the code to ensure that glass roller wave is kept to a minimum.

Maximum Area of Safety Single Glazed Glass (extracted from AS1288-2006 Table 5.1):
