The Association StekloSouz of Russia: In the framework of the Business Program of the International Building and Interior Exhibition Batimat Russia 2019 at the Crocus Expo IEC on March 13, a round table was organized and held “Use of glass in construction. Industrial processing of flat glass, technology, equipment, components and materials ".
The unique platform, which is the largest exhibition of Batimat Russia, allowed to unite the joint interests of manufacturers of materials, products and structures based on glass and representatives of the main consumer of the industry's products - Construction complex.
This event becomes traditional, held in 2018 by the StekloSouzom Round table on the use of glass in construction also attracted great attention of participants. The event was traditionally attended by architects, designers, developers, developers, construction organizations, manufacturers of facade structures, manufacturers of sheet glass, architectural glass, industrial glass processing enterprises, leading scientific organizations, technical committees for standardization TC 41 "Glass", PC 24 “Windows, doors, gates and components for them” TK 465 “Construction”, TK 144 “Building materials and products”, manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, components and materials.
Opening the meeting, the President of StekloSouz Viktor Ivanovich Osipov noted the importance of organizing systemic interaction between regulatory and supervising authorities, glass and light impregnated structures and the Construction Complex. Joint discussion of problems and their solutions serves to expand the scope of glass in construction and increase the use of glass-based products and structures.
The range of glass products is constantly updated, becoming more popular, modern and high-tech. Accordingly, technologies, equipment and components are being improved.
The purpose of the past event is primarily the organization of systemic interaction between manufacturers of glass products, glass-based structures and consumers. Joint discussion allows us to expand the scope of glass products in construction, increase the volume of industrial glass processing and expand the use of translucent glass-based structures.
Products from flat glass, foam glass and other segments of the glass industry are a unique material, but architects, designers, builders and consumers do not always know about all the possibilities that this material provides and how to use it correctly.
In addition, the innovative development of the glass industry allows us to offer consumers new, more modern types of glass: hardened and molded glass of large formats, glass with coatings of new types, high-transparent and high-strength glass, glass with ceramic printing, safe and fire-resistant glass, electrochromic, electrically heated, and many others types of glass products.
The use of glass in the internal space of buildings is actively developing; these are glass partitions, glass floors and ceilings, glass stairs, bathrooms and showers. Given the tendency to use large-sized glass products and structures, technologies and equipment for the safe installation of glass become important. Modern glass products are structural materials, including bearing and interfloor structures.
All these areas and the most up-to-date information was presented by the “Research Institute of Building Physics of the Russian Academy of Architecture and Construction Sciences” (NIISF RAACS); JSC "Institute of Glass" and the Technical Committee for Standardization TC 41 "Glass", subcommittee PC 24 "Window, door and door blocks. Components and materials »ТК 465« Construction », ТК 144« Building materials and products »and leading enterprises of the glass industry.
Particular attention was caused by the discussion of the topic on the introduction of Changes No. 1 to SP50.13330.2012 "SNiP 23-02-2003 thermal protection of buildings" in terms of translucent structures. " This document significantly increases the required values of thermal resistance of translucent structures. The fears of the industry community were caused by an excessive increase in requirements and strict deadlines for introducing them into action, which significantly changed the situation on the market for translucent structures. In addition, previous regulations operated on a mandatory basis.
However, you should pay attention to the features of the application of this document. StekloSouz Rossi on behalf of the industry community was sent a request to the leadership of the Ministry of Construction of Russia on the order of the new standards. The response received (attached) signed by the leadership of the department of urban planning and architecture of the Ministry of Construction of Russia allowed to understand the situation.
The rules and GOST standards are documents applied on a voluntary basis. Separate standards can be applied on a mandatory basis if they are included in the Government Decree dated December 26, 2014 No. 1521 “On approval of the list of national standards and sets of rules (parts of such standards and sets of rules) as a result of which the requirements of the Federal the law "Technical Regulations on the Safety of Buildings and Structures".
However, changes made to the requirements of regulatory documents (or their parts) included in the List in the process of updating them, in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation on technical regulation, are applied on a voluntary basis.
These changes come into force as binding for use only from the moment the decision of the Government of the Russian Federation on making these changes in the list comes into force.
In connection with the foregoing, Amendments No. 1 to SP 50.13330.2012 "Thermal protection of buildings" after entry into force will be applied on a voluntary basis.
Conducted a roundtable meeting: Andrey Gorin, Director of Float Glass and Industrial Processing Department of the StekloSouz of Russia.
The full reports will be posted on the website of the StekloSouz of Russia.
The next actual largest industry event, which is held by the Association StekloSouz Union of Russia annual International Forum "Glass and Modern Technologies", We invite representatives of the industry to take part in the preparation and holding of the Forum.
