Storage and handling
Upon the delivery of the glass check marks and labels on the crate, pack or glass to ensure compliance with the specification.
The edges and corners of glass and double-glazed units are especially vulnerable during handling, storage and installation. Inspect the cut edges of the glass for excessive flaws such as shells or feathers that can compromise the strength and mechanical performance of the glass.
Check all surfaces for any signs of mechanical damage or etching. Particular care is necessary as edge or surface damage may cause subsequent unexpected failure.
Glass that is not stored safely can present considerable risk of injury.
