Structural glazing is usually a frameless assembly of glass where a portion of the structural load is taken by the glass itself rather than by a supporting frame.
The use of structural glazing often provides a brighter enclosed space, clear visibility into and out of the area, and a feeling of lightness compared to other
types of structure.
Structural glazing systems allow streamlined curtain walls of glass to be built that are attached using silicone bonding, or anchored by means of rods, cables, glass fins or other unobtrusive ways.
Types of structural glass assembly can include:
• Glass façades and canopies
• Glass floors
• Frameless glass roofs and roof lights
• Glass balustrades and staircases
• Glass walls and partitions
• Lift shafts and atria
• Frameless windows
• Shower enclosures
