Glasshape is proud to offer curved solutions compliant with the amended requirements for glass barriers that took effect on June 1, 2016
The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) advised earlier this year that on 1 June 2016 the barrier requirements in NZS 4223.3.2016 will supersede those in B1/AS1. The new requirement seeks to ensure that in case of glass failure, some form of barrier remains in place until the affected area can be isolated and repaired. The three options and their requirements are explained and illustrated in our June Newsletter.
Glasshape recently launched VisionInk which ushers in a new era of possibilities in designing with glass. Ultra-durable ceramic inks that are digitally printed and toughened into the surface significantly extend the possibilities for this remarkable substrate.
