Use this 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify glass, plastic glazing, and unframed mirrors.
This section is referenced from numerous other sections requiring glazing as a part of the assembly.
There is a wide range of glass types available; this section includes only the most common, including insulated and non-insulated, laminated, reflective, low-e coated, bullet-resisting, and security. Other glass types can be added to this section to suit project requirements.
When specifying high-performance exterior glass; it may prove beneficial to specify the glass around one manufacturer’s product and then allow for substitutions. This will establish the minimum performance requirements that glass from other manufacturers must meet.
The schedule in this section contains glass types that are used in other SimpleSpecs™ Master Guide Specifications section but may not include all glass types required for a particular project.
