Technical Briefing - Forza Glazed Timber Framed Screens

A typical elevation of a Forza Glazed Timber Framed Screen has been tested at the British test centre in accordance with BS5234-2 (methods-Annex A/C/E/F) and achieved performance levels summarised as grade requirement SEVERE DUTY. An additional test (Annex G) – 'Determination of resistance to crowd pressure' was carried out with an applied line load of 3.75kN across the two central mullions giving a result maximum displacement of 21.1mm. This result is within the guidelines set out in BS6180-2011 'Barriers in and about Buildings'.

See Forza technical note FTN1 The Correct Glass & Timber Screen for the Correct Application.

n an effort to gain a high confidence level for the structural stability of a project specific screen elevation Forza are able to offer the service of AutoCAD Finite Element Analysis Simulation which takes account of components, size and method of construction and the result of applied loads.
