Safety

The main standards to be met**

NTC 2018 * UPDATING OF TECHNICAL STANDARDS FOR CONSTRUCTIONS

Italian Ministerial Decree of 17 January 2018
3.1.II OVERLOADING – Provides the required resistances for the elements to protect against falling from a height.*

UNI 7697: 2015 *

February 2015
UNI safety standard for the use of flat glass in construction. Provides information on the types of glass to be used for balustrades. *

UNI 11678:2017 *

15 May 2017
“Glass for the building industry – Glass cladding elements with fall protection function – Resistance to linear static load and dynamic load – Test Methods”

UNI standard
The standard defines the test methods to determine the behaviour of linearly distributed static loads and dynamic loads of glass cladding elements with fall protection function.

DM 236 *

14 June 1989
Technical requirements necessary to ensure accessibility, adaptability and visitability of private buildings and public housing subsidised and facilitated, for the purpose of overcoming and eliminating architectural barriers.
Provides the minimum height of the railings and balustrades in addition to the indications on the necessity and types of handrail.

* In force at the time of printing, check any changes, updates or the presence of new regulations
** Without prejudice to any local regulations in force in the territory where the final customer is located.
