Testing

StoVentec Glass

Despite the clear design benefits of glass rainscreen cladding, it is ultimately the safety performance of the system that is of paramount importance.

StoVentec Glass has been BBA tested and approved for all standard applications. StoVentec Glass has also received rigorous testing under extreme conditions, and has proven itself to be the safest, most robust system available on the market today.

Impact Testing

StoVentec Glass is suitable for specification within high traffic areas. The system has passed all industry standard soft-body impact tests, plus hard-body impact tests in accordance with BS EN 356. StoVentec Glass currently holds the highest impact test rating of all glass rainscreen cladding systems in the UK and Europe.

  • Soft body impact test to BS 12600 (Class 1)
  • Soft body impact test to BS 8200 (Category B)
  • Soft body impact test to BS 6206 (Class A)
  • Hard body impact test to BS 8200 (Category B)
  • Drop ball test from 9m to BS EN 356:2000 (Class P4A)


Blast Testing

StoVentec Glass has very recently been tested in accordance with ISO 16933 'Glass in Building - Explosion resistant security glazing', a requirement before the system can be applied in certain public areas. The results of the testing are shown below. They have far exceeded expectations of the Glass consultants.

  • Blast test (10kg of TNT at 6m) to ISO 16933:2007 (Pass)
  • Blast test (100kg of TNT at 25m) to ISO 16933:2007 (Pass)
