Frameless Glazing

Frameless glazing, utilising toughened glass and a varied range of aesthetically pleasing fittings, can be easily and quickly combined with steel and concrete construction, to provide an attractive and structurally sound all-glass appearance.

Put simply, glass walls with glass fin support and/or patch fittings, in the form of frameless toughened glass assemblies are bolted together at their corners by means of metal patch fittings. Glass panel joints are sealed with silicone, and fins provide lateral stability against wind loading. The final glass assembly is suspended from the building structure by hangers bolted to its top edge, and is sealed into channels.

The use of very popular Spider fittings further provides an all-glass appearance - a smart and elegant alternative to conventional framed glazing. Overall, detailing and installation becomes simpler when “spider” systems are used.
