AS / NZS 2208 Safety Glazing Materials in Buildings - Western Australia


You will need to comply with this standard if you are an employer, main contractor or self-employed person and intend to use a blasting chamber or cabinet that has a window or inspection port made with safety glazing.

Blasting chambers and cabinets are structures used for abrasive blasting which are designed so that when operating, the presence of a person inside the cabinet is or is not required, respectively.

This standard specifies the functional properties of various safety glazing materials, including toughened glass, laminated glass, wired glass, organic-coated glass and plastic. Two grades are covered, with different impact performance levels. Other requirements include size tolerances, weathering and ageing performance. Test methods are given in some appendices, while others deal with sampling, acceptance procedures and notes on safe performance criteria and human dynamics data.
