Glass Deflection

Glass deflection is the amount that a piece of glass bends, or flexes, at its center point when a force, such as wind load or snow load, is applied. Extreme amounts of deflection can lead to distortion. Therefore, The International Building Code (IBC) has established deflection limit standards for glass wall systems.
