Sandblasted glass sloped 15 degrees (0.26 rad) or less from vertical in windows, curtain and window walls, doors, and other exterior applications shall be designed to resist the wind loads in Section 1609 (HVHZ shall comply with Section 1620) for components and cladding according to the following equation:
|0.6Fgw<0.5 Fge||(Equation 24-12)|
|Fgw||=||Wind load on the glass due to ultimate design wind |
speed, Vult, computed per Section 1609.
|Fge||=||Nonfactored load from ASTM E 1300. The value for |
sandblasted glass is for moderate levels of sandblasting.
