Glass dimensioning according to DIN 18008
GLASTIK standard determines by approximation procedure the relevant glass thicknesses, from 3 mm, for miscellaneously glasses, which are mounted horizontally or vertically with linear bearing on two, three or all sides, depending on load assumptions. All specifications and guidances which are valid in Germany are thereby respected. GLASTIK can calculate according the DIN 18008, parts 1, 2 and 4 on a click with the additional module 'linear loads', and of course, still the directives TRLV / TRAV. This dual calculation basis was especially valuable in the period in which, there were two parallel legal bases for the delayed introduction of the new glass standard since mid-2014 by the federal states in Germany. But even now, the duality for retrace of existing glazings, for example in cases of damage, certainly offer long term benefits.
The glass thickness definition is determined in the basis version by wind-, snow-, own- and for insulating glass also by climate loads. An object administration in the program allows any classification and storage of calculations.
This software is for glass people who have few to none basic knowledge and still have to perform their jobs daily by defining glass dimensioning for purchasing calculation but also for advisory service.
The program supplies a one-sided respectively two-sided result print for relaying on paper or as PDF. If required, you can order an 'expert printout' which documents all calculated load combinations.
In order to enable further simplifications and additional requirements beyond the basis calculation program , there are a number of additional modules which all work with the basis version.
