Design of insulating glass panes has special requirement on the load application point of the loading. For example, wind loads and loads due to fall protection may appear. For this, the wind load should be applied on the external glass side and the handrail load should act on the internal glass pane.

This setting can be specified in Table 1.7 of RF‑GLASS. Here, you can define the percentage load distribution on the external and the internal glass side.
