Standard and Guide to Good Practice for Slope Glazing systems 

This Standard comprises three volumes: 

Standard for slope glazing systems 
Test methods for facades: Slope glazing systems 
Guide to good practice for facades
Standard for slope glazing systems sets out a framework for the specification of a slope glazing system, establishes specific requirements for its performance and defines the tests by which compliance with particular aspects of these requirements may be demonstrated. 

Test methods for facades: Slope glazing systems identifies two new tests - a test for the watertightness of unsealed slope glazing systems using static pressure with a wind generator, and a test for site testing of the watertightness of slope glazing systems using a spray bar. 

'Guide to Good Practice for Facades' gives advice on the choice of materials, components and finishes, as well as quality assurance, fabrication, transportation, storage and installation and maintenance.
