1.04 Performance Criteria
system including glazing material shall be designed to support design
loads as prescribed by the governing building code. B. Thermal
load of +/- 60 degrees F from ambient temperature without causing bucking,
stresses on glass, failure of seals, undue stress on structural elements,
reduction of performance or other detrimental effects. C. The
maximum allowable deflection of any framing member normal to the plane
of the glass shall not exceed L/175. For spans 20'-0" or greater the
maximum allowable deflection shell not exceed L/240. D. The
maximum allowable deflection of any framing member parallel to the plane
of the glass shall exceed/8". E. Allowable
air infiltration shall not exceed 0.06 CFM of the total glazed surface
area when tested in accordance with ASTM E283 at static pressure of
6.24 PSF. F. No
uncontrolled water leakage shall occur when the system is tested in
accordance with ASTM E331 at a static pressure of 6.24 PSF. G. Uniform
load structural according to ASTM E330 +40/-40 PSF, +60/-60 PSF.
