Re: Glass Storefront as Shearwalls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are counting on the glass to support your structure, you need to
make sure it will not crack anytime the wind is blowing.  Unfortunately,
that's usually when it cracks.  Perhaps posting a sign dis-allowing such
concurrent activities will work  :)

Seriously, the window frame needs to be deep enough to allow for all the
movement that will take place.  Because it will take place.  This
becomes an interesting coordination item between the designers.
