Calculation method

As a function of the design and the glazing chosen, thermal modelling of a SSGS can be undertaken with
various computer software packages. To use the results of those programmes, it is necessary to ensure that
they are at least two-dimensional and cover all the required parameters (ISO 13788:2001).

The commonly used values of the thermal conductivity (-value) of the materials used in the present SSGS
kit are :

Materials -value (W/m K) materials -value (W/m K)


Stainless steel 17 silicone 0,35
Glass 1 Spacer PUR foam 0,078
EPDM 0,25 Aluminium 160

Thermal modelling of CW50-HV has been done according to the European Standard EN ISO 10077-2 in
conjunction with the special computer software called Bisco Version 5.0w. This program calculates a two
dimensional model. The model is prepared as a .bmp file with the program called Paintshop Pro Version
6.0. All thermal conductivity values () of EN ISO 10077-2 are used. The results are calculated by the
Finite Element Method.
Results of calculation:
Thermal transmittance of the frame section following pr EN ISO 10077-2:
Suspension profile section fixed double glazing + open out window : Uf = 3.41 W/m2K
Transom section fixed double glazing + open out window : Uf = 3,13 W/m2K

Condensation:
With an inside temperature of 20C and outside temperature of 0C, condensation will occur at the
following relative humidity:
Suspension profile section fixed double glazing + open out window : 68 %
Transom section fixed double glazing + open out window : 66 %
On the glazing (Glass U = 1,1 W/m2K) : 53 %

3. Evaluation of conformity and CE marking

3.1. Attestation of conformity system


The systems of attestation of conformity specified by the European Commission detailed in the
Commission decision 96/580/EC of 24/06/96, published in the EC Official Journal L254 of 08/10/96:

System 1 (without audit testing of samples) for SSG kits Type II

System 2+ (first possibility, including certification of the factory production control (FPC) by an approved
body on the basis of its continuous surveillance, assessment and approval) for SSG kits Types I.
[The systems being as described in Council Directive 89/106 EEC Annex 111.2.(i) and (ii) respectively].

System 1

(a) tasks for the manufacturer

factory production control;


testing of samples taken at the factory by the manufacturer in accordance with a prescribed
test plan.

(b) tasks for the approved body

initial type testing of the product;


initial inspection of the factory and of factory production control;
continuous surveillance, assessment and approval of the factory production control.

System 2+

8
AG 020123-E Reynaers CW 50 HV.doc

(a) tasks for the manufacturer

initial type testing of the product;


factory production control.

(b) tasks for the approved body

initial inspection of the factory and factory production control;


continuous surveillance, assessment and approval of the factory production control.

In practice, the operation of systems 1 and 2+ will be very similar for SSG kits, for the following reasons:

(a) the results of testing will normally be available as part of the work required for the assessment of
the products for ETA and these test results should be used for the purposes of initial type testing

(b) the nature of the product is such that testing of samples at the factory by the manufacturer will be
required under the FPC arrangements.

The significant differences between the two systems are as follows:

(a) the criteria for approval of the approved bodies involved in initial inspection of the factory/FPC and
continuous surveillance will be different for the two systems (ref EC Construct 95/149 Guidance
Paper A).

(b) an EC Certificate of product Conformity from an approved body will be required for system 1, an
EC Certificate of FPC conformity for system 2+ and in both cases a manufacturer's declaration of
conformity.

3.2. Responsibilities

The reference document is the NB-CPD/SG05/03/007 position paper of the sector group 5, approved in
November 2003 by the Advisory Group

3.2.1. ROUTES TO CE MARKING

In the framework of this ETA for the structural sealant glazing kits CW 50-SG, CW 60-SG, the faadiers
are identified as being faadiers types B or C as defined in the position paper referred to above5. Two or
three manufacturing actors are involved:
the kit designer: Reynaers Aluminium, responsible for the design of the kit and its components.
Reynaers Aluminium is the ETA-holder.
the faadiers: Several manufacturers who are responsible for assembling the kit components, produced
by one or more suppliers (generally the kit designer, but possibly others (glass, sealant, etc.)), in
accordance with the specifications of the kit designer. The faadiers put the products on the market and
have to obtain an EC certificate of conformity. The faadiers produce the metal frames, using the
profiles supplied by the kit designer. Each faadier shall demonstrate its capabilities to implement the
kit designer instruction
The faadiers type B have bonding equipment to perform the bonding work between the glazing product
and the structural sealant support frame.
The faadiers type C have no bonding facilities. A third actor is involved in the manufacturing process:
the bonding workshop.

AG 020123-E Reynaers CW 50 HV.doc

- the bonding workshops (structural sealant appliers): subcontractors of the faadiers performing the
bonding activities. The bonding workshop's FPC system is an important part of the FPC system that is
under the responsibility of the EC Certificate holder (the faadier). The bonding workshop cannot be
EC certificate holder by itself. The bonding workshop, prior to proceeding with bonding activities in
the framework of CE-marking the kit, shall fulfil the requirements of the NB-CPD/SG05/03/007
position paper. The bonding workshops given in annex 1 are those assessed at the time of ETA
delivery.
- Bonding workshops not mentioned in Annex 1 are permitted to proceeding with bonding activities in
the framework of CE-marking the kit if they meet the requirements set out in NB-CPD/SG05/03/007 (
3.2 in particular), as documented in an assessment report, issued by an Approval body or a notified
body.
3.2.2. TASKS FOR THE MANUFACTURER

3.2.2.1. Factory production control


The ETA holder of the kit is responsible for setting up appropriate rules and instructions for faadiers and
the bonding workshops (quality manual for kit assembling and bonding). The different actors are bound via

part of the FPC system
The contractual links and their contents are described in the document GNB-CPD SG05 Route to CE-
marking August 2003
3.2.2.2. Testing of samples taken at the factory Prescribed Test Plan
This relates only to taking samples representative of the final product. In the context of SSGS the testing of
"H" pieces, peel tests as part of FPC provides the necessary evidence.
3.2.2.3. Declaration of Conformity
When all the criteria of the conformity attestation are satisfied, the faadiers shall make a Declaration of
Conformity.
3.2.3. TASKS FOR THE KIT DESIGNER OR THE APPROVED BODY : INITIAL TYPE TESTING
Approval tests have been conducted by the approval body (UBAtc - BUtgb) or under its responsibility in
accordance with Chapter 5 of the ETAG 002. The approval body (UBAtc - BUtgb) has assessed the results
of these tests in accordance with Chapter 6 of the ETAG 002, as part of the ETA issuing procedure. These
tests should be used for the purposes of Initial Type Testing.

For System 1, this work is validated by the approved body for Certificate of Conformity purposes.
For System 2+, the work should be taken over by the kit designer for Declaration of Conformity purposes.
3.2.4. TASKS FOR THE APPROVED BODY

The frame is immediately set on a rack. The sealant curing is then allowed without any movement between
the glass and the structural support frame during the time prescribed in the structural sealant ETA.
4.2. Installation and design rules

4.2.1. DESIGN RULES

4.2.1.1. Structural seals design


The structural seal is to be calculated as per annex 2 of the ETAG 002 with the design value given in the
chapter 2.1.1 respecting the following conditions
the minimum dimensions of the structural seal are e6 mm, hc6 mm
For the definition of e, hc, r, see ETAG 002 SSGS.

Alternative calculation methods mentioned in the ETA of the structural sealants may also be used. (see
2.1.1.1)

4.2.1.2. Drainage and ventilation (fig. 8)


Drainage of the opening part is performed by cutting away the lips of the horizontal EPDM gasket
80.9321.04 (dimension of the cut part: height = 5mm, length = 15mm, with a maximum in between
distance of 500mm).
Under the vent, on both sides (left and right bottom comer), a drainage piece is fixed onto the suspension
profile.
4.2.1.3. Weather sealing
The weather sealing is achieved with gaskets as show in fig. 9.
4.2.1.4. Maximum dimensions
Opening lights : the maximum dimensions of the opening part are 1,60 m x 1,60 m (l x h max dimension of
the glass unit). They have been determined as a result of the test on faade prototype (fig. 10).
4.2.1.5. Transfer of the infill loading on the building structure
The transfer of the infill panel onto the building structure is done by the self-weight support 73.7305.39
and 73.7314.39. Those are fixed in the opening vent as described in 2.1.1.3.1.

The vent is fixed onto the frame of the opening part by means of the friction stays.
The loading transfer of the infill panel on the building structure is shown on the figure related to the
Anchorage of the structural sealant support frame on the faade structure (fig. 4)
4.2.1.6. Retaining devices
The retaining devices are 73.7271.39 and 73.7273.39

4.2.1.7. Ironwork
As a function of the glazed element size, the number of locks of the ironwork is given on fig. 11
4.2.2. INSTALLATION - SPECIFICATIONS ON THE FAADE STRUCTURE
The maximum permissible deflection of the mullion and transom under the designed load is 1/200.
The coupling between mullions and transoms is performed by mechanical T -connection.
The faade structure shall be electrically earthed.
The faade structure shall be equipped with dilatation joints and movement joints in function of those of
the building structure.
In the faade design, movement in the joint must not be thwarted and care shall taken no to shortcut any
faade structure joint with structural sealant support frames.
The structural sealant support frames are placed in the faade structure element per element.
The elements are then equipped with the gaskets.
Care shall be taken to allow drainage.

4.2.3. MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR

4.2.3.1. Repair
All damages noticed on a structural sealant must be repaired as follow:
- dismantling of the structural sealant support frame
- replacement by a new unit in reserve
- repair of the damaged unit in workshop following the procedure described in 4.1 after
removing of the structural sealant.

4.2.3.2. Maintenance
Current maintenance: cleaning up the glazing with clear water.
