The performance and quality of glass is described in nearly 100 British and European Standards. CWCT has not yet published detailed guidance on the use of glass in the building envelope’ although it has plans to do so.

However, we have published several technical notes on glass here

Meanwhile we can advise members on:

  • The relevant Standards for particular types of glass and usage.
  • Glass types
  • Appropriate use of glass
  • Mechanical strength of glass
  • Glazing for environmental control
  • Limitations on the use of glass
  • Glazing systems.
