SPIDERGLASS®: Point-fixed exterior bolted glass system
SPIDERGLASS is a modern solution for exterior bolted glass assemblies, which secures the glazing to a support structure by means of point-fixings.
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.
Intermediate elements which are inserted between the bolt and the glass ensure:
uniform transmission of stresses whilst avoiding local stresses;
a watertight facade.
The system incorporates SECURIPOINT (specially toughened) glass and can accommodate monolithic glass, laminated glass and double glazed units created from the full range of innovative Saint-Gobain Glass products.
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.
Unobtrusive, flush appearance
SPIDERGLASS fixings contribute to the creation of all-glass assemblies and innovative projects. With SPIDERGLASS, the glass is not set in frames like traditional constructions, but held in place by point-fixings, thus creating innovative aesthetic all-glass facades.
All-glass structures can be created, ensuring interiors are generously provided with natural light. When refurbishing older buildings, the clarity of the glass allows the original structure to be exposed in its true form.
