To create SSGDG-1-17, AAMA chose to combine two previous publications: TSGG-04, which pertains to two-sided structural glazing for skylights, and CW-13-85, a structural glazing design guide. The final guideline now covers structural glazing for both sloped and vertical applications.

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association recently merged two previous publications to create AAMA SSGDG-1-17, also known as the "Structural Silicone Glazing Design Guidelines,” which overs a specific glazing known for a unique appearance and simplicity of construction.

"Combining two documents that discussed structural glazing made learning about the process simpler for those seeking that information," said Kelly Broker, of Dow Performance Silicones, chair of the AAMA Structural Sealant Design Guidelines Task Group. "We feel this makes the knowledge formerly contained in both more accessible."

According to AAMA, structural silicone has performed well under the stresses of harsh environments, UV exposure and weathering. As a result, structural silicone sealants are the only kind of sealant approved for the application of structurally adhered glazing.

The guide is $15 for members and $45 for non-members; it can be purchased here.
