Regulation Manifestations are a Health & Safety requirement to apply manifestations to glass doors, glass partitions and screens. If you have full height glass in windows, doors or building partitions, they must be marked correctly with glass manifestation to make sure the solid glass is evident.
Glass manifestation is designed to help make glass obvious and reduce injuries by preventing people from walking into the glass.
How do I know what kind of Window Manifestations I need to be legal?
Stipulates that all glazing panels in public buildings and areas, must incorporate features which make it apparent. Where ‘Manifestation’ is necessary, it may take the form of broken or solid lines, patterns or company logos at appropriate heights and intervals.

level should be between 850mm and 1000mm from finished floor level and the higher from 1400mm and 600mm.
