Soft and hard body test glass skylight

« Back

In English speaking countries, the CWCT (Centre for Window and Cladding Technology) describes the safety and fragility of glazing in so-called Technical Notes. TN66 gives a description of the safety and classification. TN68 gives a description of the test situation. This concerns the soft body impact test, hard body impact test and the statistical load test.

Soft body impact test

Here a bag with a diameter of 300 mm is filled with sand. Its total weight is 45 kg. The bag has a drop height of 1200 mm.

Hard body impact test

With this test use is made of a steel bullet with a diameter of 100 mm and a weight of 4.1 kg. The fall height is 1200 mm.

Statistical load test

This test is carried out after the soft or hard body tests have been made. If the glazing has not yet broken during the impact tests, then it will now be broken. A uniformly distributed load of 180 kg is applied for 30 minutes. This load may not go through the pane and the entire pane must not fall out of the system.

For the Arclite skylight tests were carried out with panes measuring 876 x 2380 mm. The skylight complied with the criteria stated in Technical Note TN66 of the CWCT and is categorised under class 2.
