RE: Wind damaged residences - ASTM std for glazing?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Responding to the enquiry from Joshua Matthews for some info on the ASTM 
standards and where to obtain them, visit http://www.astm.org/ and enter the 
"store" to find the index of standards. Search on "glazing" or "window". Note 
the date of publication for the standards. 

Apologies for not responding sooner.

Some of those related to glazing/window assembly loads include:
