Windows (as well as Skylights and Glass Roofs)

In principle, the following regulations apply to windows, skylights and glass roofs:
  • Direct solar irradiation as well as irritating heat or cold are to be avoided (i.e. by selecting windows or blinds with special characteristics)
  • If necessary, devices for risk-free cleaning are to be provided
  • Opening, closing and adjustment have to be possible from a fixed position and must not lead to any risks of injuries
  • Light ingress areas for natural light have to correspond to at least 10 per cent of the floor surface area in rooms with permanent workstations
  • Skylights and glass roofs must not be penetrated by falling objects; glass must not produce ruptures in case of fire.
