Dimensioning tables

Construction Engineering Principles

The dimensioning is based on the standards EN 1990, EN 1991-1-1, EN 1991-1-3, EN 1991-1-4 and National Annexes.

Lumon Balcony Glazing Systems are standardised structural components. Glass thickness and fastening methods must be designed in accordance with the conditions at the site. The Balcony Glazing System are subject to the following loads: the system weight (in vertical direction) and the wind load, including wind pressure and suction (in horizontal direction).

The glass thickness is determined on the basis of the following factors:

  • wind load kN/m² (terrain class and height of the building)
  • width of individual panes
  • glazing height


System own weight:
  • glass 6 mm g=0,15 kN/m²
  • glass 8 mm g=0,20 kN/m²
  • glass 10 mm g=0,25 kN/m²
  • glass 12 mm g=0,30 kN/m²

Wind pressure

Specified by national wind maps and building regulations.

Wind suction load

The corner areas of the building is also affected by wind suction load
