All performance data is determined using LBL Windows 5.2 software. NFRC 100-2001 conditions have been used. * Based on comparison of weighted sound reduction index (Rw) of ComfortHush™ and 3mm annealed float glass. † Based on comparison of weighted sound reduction index (Rw) of ComfortHush™ and 10mm annealed float glass.
Considerations

Noise Control
To avoid noise leaks, you need to ensure that acoustic glass is installed in a frame that's well sealed and professionally fitted. If the frame isn't sealed properly then acoustic glass cannot work to its full potential.

Glass Processing
Further processing is required for frameless glazing.

Installation
Exposed edges to be protected from moisture ingress.

How to Specify
Glass Thicknesses and colours available:
  • Clear 6.5, 8.5, 10.5 & 12.5mm
  • Grey 6.88, 10.88 & 12.88mm
  • Translucent 6.88, 10.88 & 12.88mm

Select from: Laminated or Heat Strengthened laminated

*If unsure, select in compliance with AS1288–2006 or manufacturers recommendation. *

The glass shall comply with the following performance criteria:

  • U value
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)
  • Visible Light Transmission %
  • Glass Only Values
  • Total window
Heat Strengthening

All glass which requires extra strength and thermal resistance will be heat strengthened. Heat strengthening increases the strength of annealed glass; however, it is not a substitute for toughened glass.

In the event of fracturing heat strengthened glass will crack and tends to remain in glazed position.

Toned Glass

Toned glass absorbs a proportion of solar radiation and may require a thermal assessment depending on application.

All glass is to be selected and installed in accordance but not exclusively with the following Australian and/or New Zealand Standards

  • AS 1288 Glass in Buildings Selection and Installation
  • AS 1170 Minimum Wind Loads on Structures
  • AS/NZ 2208 Safety Glazing Materials in Buildings
  • AS/NZ 4666 Insulating Glass Units
  • AS/NZ 4667 Quality Requirements for cut-to-size and Processed Glass

 

Oceania Glass makes and distributes glass. Oceania Glass does not process glass nor produce Insulated Glass Units. Processing of glass and production of Insulated Glass Units is undertaken by independent processors. Speak with your nominated glass processors to understand their processing capability.
