Fire-Rated Glazing Changes in 2012 International Building Code - Downloadable Out of Stock
To summarize these changes for design and building professionals
In 2010, the International Code Council (ICC) adopted several changes regarding fire-rated glazing in the International Building Code (IBC). ICC incorporated these changes into the 2012 IBC1, which they made available for use starting in spring 2011. Jurisdictions are anticipated to adopt the 2012 IBC as part of their code updates in the months and years to come. The purpose of this bulletin is to summarize these changes for design and building professionals. The 2012 IBC also includes a number of housekeeping edits and other clarifications that are not discussed in this bulletin. The Technical Services Division of the National Glass Association (NGA) has produced this Glass Technical Paper solely for informational purposes. This Paper was developed by dedicated member volunteers and subject matter experts. This document was published in December 2011. All purchases will be electronically accessed or delivered.
