The licence for extraordinary work

Since the Structural Glazing (SG) method is not covered by building laws, SG systems require either "general building inspection approval" or approval for the specific buildings in question, the latter from the highest building supervision authority.

The construction of SG systems approved by building authorities may only be undertaken by companies that comply with the technical and personnel requirements laid down in the approval regulations, that have installed an appropriate system of in-house and external supervision and are registered as an approved SG construction company with the DIBt (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik, German Institute of Building Technology) in Berlin.

Arnold Glas fulfils these conditions and is an officially approved producer of structural glazing units and structural glazing system fixing work on sub-frames.
