Glass in buildings: Breakage - the influence of nickel sulfide

This report looks at the use of toughened glass in buildings and the effects of nickel sulfide on the risk of glass failure. 

It covers the risk of failure of toughened glass, the process of heat soaking and the appropriate use of glass.  This includes assessment of risk and specification. 

The report also gives advice on the diagnosis of glass failures and appropriate remedial action for buildings where the risk of glass failure is unacceptably high.
