Manifestations prime focus is to make the glass visible. Visibly seeing large expanses of glass can often be difficult, making them a potential hazard. Building regulations require manifestations to be placed in strategic locations on the glass, the contrast making them easy to spot which then prevents potential accidents.

What are the manifestations regulations & legislation?

Full height glass in windows, partitions and doors require glass manifestations to make sure that it is apparent which helps to prevent potential accidents. The Building Regulations 2000 Part M States that glass entrance doors and glass screens will satisfy requirement M1 or M2 if:

a) They are clearly defined with glass manifestations on the glass at two levels, between 850mm and 1000mm and between 1400mm and 1600mm above the floor, contrasting visually with the background seen through the glass (both inside and out) in all lighting conditions.

b) Manifestations takes the form of a logo or sign at least 150mm high (repeated if on a glazed screen), or a decorative feature such as broken lines or continuous bands, at least 50mm high.

Glass Manifestation Regulations

To clean glass with manifestations applied, we advise to avoid using abrasive cleaning products i.e brushes as this could potentially scratch/scrape the manifestations. Using a simple soft cloth or synthetic sponge will be more than satisfactory.

Logos, patterns and cut outs require careful consideration, please go around these areas attentively to avoid damage.

Manifestations can take the form of logos, shapes, lines and more! This brings an extra design element to your glass and windows. Whilst glass manifestation regulations dictate where manifestation should appear, there are no requirements as to how it should appear, leaving the creative abilities endless.

Manifestations can easily be removed if needed however, once removed they cannot be reapplied.

After thoroughly cleaning the glass with soapy water and a squeegee, the glass is now ready for installation. The manifestations are then applied and smoothed out to ensure no bubbles or creases occur. This process can be completed by either the customer or a trained professional fitter (recommended).

We advise all customers to not touch the manifestations for at least 30 days after installation. After this period, please refer to our “How do I clean glass with manifestations applied” to avoid ruining your manifestations.
