ANSI Z The consensus committee that approved the Standard was balanced to ensure that individuals from competent and concerned interests have had an opportunity to participate. It was developed within the approved scope as stated in section 1. This Standard is available for public review on a continuing basis. This provides an opportunity for additional public input from industry, academia, regulatory agencies, and the public-at-large.

The use of an addenda system will allow revisions made in response to public review or committee actions to be published as required. This Standard, which is the result of extended and careful consideration of available knowledge and experience on the subject, is intended to provide minimum requirements that are recommended for use, adoption, enforcement by federal, state and local authorities and by model codes.

This standard is to be referenced but not incorporated in any statute or any other standard without the prior written permission of the publisher. This Standard does not recommend where safety glazing should be used or, when it is used, what type of glazing material should be used. Neither the standards committee nor the secretariat feel that this standard is perfect or in its ultimate form.

It is recognized that, although safety-glazing materials are widely used and accepted, new developments are to be expected and revisions of the standards are necessary as the art progresses and further experience is gained.

This standard is a successor standard to the e2 edition. The e2 standard succeeded those of the e, , , reaffirmed in , , and editions. No test methods, references or exceptions appear in this document for Class C, 12 inch drop height and fire-rated wired glass. Compliance of all safety glazing products must be rated to either Class A or Class B in accordance with the procedures of this edition. In order for material to be considered for reference or to continue to be referenced in the ANSI Z The standard or portions of a standard intended to be enforced shall be written in mandatory language.

The scope or application of the reference material shall be clearly described. The referenced material shall not have the effect of requiring proprietary materials. The standard shall not prescribe a proprietary agency for quality control or testing. For communication with the Committee please refer to the following page General. ANSI Codes and Standards are developed and maintained with the intent to represent the consensus of concerned interests.

As such, users of this Standard may interact with the Committee by requesting interpretations, proposing revisions, and attending Committee meetings. Correspondence should be addressed to: Secretary, Z97 Main Committee.
