JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Glass unit masonry panels shall conform to the support requirements of this section.
The maximum total deflection of structural members that support glass unit masonry shall not exceed 1/600.
Glass unit masonry panels shall be laterally supported along the top and sides of the panel. Lateral supports for glass unit masonry panels shall be designed to resist not less than 200 pounds per lineal feet (2918 N/m) of panel, or the actual applied loads, whichever is greater. Except for single-unit panels, lateral support shall be provided by panel anchors along the top and sides spaced not greater than 16 inches (406 mm) on center or by channel-type restraints. Single-unit panels shall be supported by channel-type restraints.
- Lateral support is not required at the top of panels that are one unit wide.
- Lateral support is not required at the sides of panels that are one unit high.
Panel anchors shall be spaced not greater than 16 inches (406 mm) on center in both jambs and across the head. Panel anchors shall be embedded not less than 12 inches (305 mm) and shall be provided with two fasteners so as to resist the loads specified in Section R607.5.2.
