What is a Structural Glazing Inspection?

Structural glazing façade inspections are mandatory for threshold buildings with curtain walls or structural glazing systems under Florida Building Code Sections 2414 and 2415. These inspections ensure the safety and performance of the system and silicone sealants. Buildings 5 years or older require inspections every 5 years, starting from either 2023 or 2024, depending on the construction year. Certification dates are based on construction years: e.g., buildings from 2018, 2013, 2008, 2003, 1998, etc., must be certified in 2023, while those from 2019, 2014, 2009, 2004, 1999, etc., will be certified in 2024.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who needs a structural glazing façade inspection?

Anyone who owns a threshold building, i.e., a building three stories or higher in Florida is legally required to conduct a structural glazing facade inspection. 

A part of Florida facade inspection safety program, these inspections involve a thorough examination of the building's exterior walls, focusing on the glass panels and frames. The goal is to identify any issues that could impact the safety, functionality, or appearance of the structure.

When to conduct a facade inspection?

As per Florida Building Code section 2415.7.4, you have to conduct a facade inspection twice at a six month interval during the first year after your building’s construction. Thereafter, you’ll need to conduct these inspections at a five year interval. 

Here’s what the FBC says regarding the required inspection type timeline: 

  • Level 1 inspection after 5 years from the year-built date
  • Level 2 inspection after 10 years
  • Level 1 inspection after 15 years (if Level 2 inspection was performed after 10 years)
  • Level 2 inspection after 20 years, and each successive 5 years (or Level 3 if significant distress is found) 
How much does a structural glazing inspection cost?

 There isn’t a fixed cost for a facade glazing inspection as the prices vary depending on factors such as the size, age, location, and design of the building. 

However, you can get in touch with us and receive a free estimate for your building’s facade inspection.

Why is building facade inspection important?

The importance of building facade inspection lies in ensuring the durability and structural integrity of a building's outer shell, which serves as a crucial barrier against weather, noise, and potential hazards. Detecting problems early on can prevent issues like glass breakage, water leaks, or energy inefficiencies, safeguarding the well-being and security of occupants.

How is building facade inspection performed?

Trained professionals, including engineers and architects, conduct the inspection. The process typically involves a visual assessment from different perspectives, close-up inspections using scaffolding or ropes, and the use of specialized tools and instruments to measure various parameters such as temperature, humidity, or sound.

What is drone facade inspection?

Drone facade inspection utilizes unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to capture high-resolution images and videos of a building's exterior. This method is particularly useful for accessing challenging or unsafe areas without the need for human intervention.

What are the benefits of drone facade inspection?

Drone facade inspection takes advantage of UAVs to capture detailed images and videos of a building's exterior. This method offers several advantages, including reduced time and labor, enhanced accuracy with high-resolution visuals, and improved safety by accessing challenging areas without risking human safety.
