SPIDERGLASS - SPIDER GLAZING

SPIDERGLASS is a modern solution for exterior bolted glass assemblies

The high-grade stainless steel fixings are designed to absorb all static and dynamic loads (i.e. the dead weight of the glass, wind loading, snow loads and differential expansion due to temperature difference) and distribute them to the support structure.

Benefits

  • Security
  • Safety
  • Design

Description

SPIDERGLASS is a modern solution for exterior bolted glass assemblies, which secures the glazing to a support structure by means of point-fixings. Intermediate elements which are inserted between the bolt and the glass ensure a uniform transmission of stresses whilst avoiding local stresses and a watertight facade.

The system incorporates SECURIPOINT (specially toughened) glass. SPIDERGLASS is now also certified as blast-enhanced to ISO 16933 “Glass in Building – Explosion resistant security glazing – Test and classification for arena air blast loading”.

Applications

  • Facades
  • Inclined facades
  • Double-skin facades
  • Overhead glazing
  • Interior partitions / atria Canopies

 

For monolithic glass, SPIDERGLASS consists of an articulated bolt-fixing which is secured to a support structure to ensure that the glazing is firmly fixed in position. Use of such bolts permits movement in all directions. Each fitting is carefully fitted into a countersunk hole and is secured flush into the exterior surface of the glass.

Laminated glass, in the form of STADIP SPIDERGLASS (combined with heat-strengthened glass) can also be used with SPIDERGLASS fixings and ensures the integrity of the glass in the event of accidental breakage.

Double glazed SPIDERGLASS incorporates a SECURIPOINT (specially toughened) outer leaf with either a toughened or laminated inner. The units can incorporate any of the COOL-LITE or PLANITHERM products.
