Glass Railing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello,

Does anyone have an idea of how to design glass handrail.  The client wants
to span 1/2" tempered glass 6 ft. between vertical balustrades.  The load at
the top of the 32" high glass panel is 50 plf.  The panel encloses a balcony
area.

What is the allowable or ultimate flexural capacity of glass?

Thanks for your help.
