The International Organization of Standardization Safety Glazing Materials Technical Committee (ISO/TC/SC/11) is drafting a standard to determine how resistant OE automotive glass is to intruders. The proposal is now in draft form and is expected to be put forward for a vote on May 26.
Through the proposed testing, the group looks to assess and classify the intruder resistance properties of automotive glazing. The committee is looking at how much security glazing can prevent break-ins with a blunt or sharp object.
Because the proposal is currently in draft form, it is not available for wide review, but copies may be obtained through the ISO.
Voting on the proposal will end on August 26.
Participating countries include Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Observing countries include Argentina, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Finland, Hungary, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
