GLASS BRITISH KITE MARK LOCATION

The British Standard Kite Mark (right) must be engraved into each pane of glass. The mark is approximately 25mm in diameter when placed onto the front of a glass panel. There are two options for positioning the engraving, seen below.

Where to position the British Kite Mark on glass panels in order to meet building regulations.

PLEASE NOTE: The mark is required to be visible for building inspections If the glass must be removed for an inspector to view the mark, Pear Stairs will take no responsibility for the removal of the glass or any costs or damages that may be incurred in doing so.
