This European Standard specifies dimensional and minimum quality requirements (in respect of optical and visual faults) for float glass, as defined in EN 572-1:2012, for use in building.
This European Standard applies only to float glass supplied in jumbo sizes (see Note 1), split sizes (see Note 2) and oversize plates (see Note 3).
NOTE 1Jumbo sizes - PLF (plateau largeur de fabrication) - Bandmasse.
NOTE 2Split sizes - DLF (dimension largeur de fabrication) - Geteilte Bandmasse.
NOTE 3Oversize plates - these are plates where the nominal length, H, is greater than 6 000 mm. These plates are produced to special order.
EN 572-8 gives information on float glass in sizes (i.e. supplied and final cut sizes) other than those covered by this European Standard.
