Architectural designs are incomplete without glass solutions. When we talk of contemporary trends, a glass application is bound to make it to the conversation; and why not? In recent years, glass has been subjected to a lot of advanced processing that has made it less susceptible to cracks and breakage. This has vastly improved its utility.
Now, you can be assured of the robustness and strength of glass by simply determining the kind of glazing it has. Glazed glasses are specially processed to meet the varied glass needs of décor, design, and safety. Along with this, these glass solutions find application in numerous architectural design needs.
What is Spider Glazing?
Spider glazing is a type of glazing solution for exterior bolted glass assemblies. It uses point fixings to secure the glass to a support structure. Spider glazing is a complete packaged solution that has glass, fixings, fasteners, and spider brackets that connect to the main structure.
The fixings used are made up of stainless steel. These fixings are designed to absorb all kinds of load and then distribute them to the support structure. It can handle both static and dynamic loads such as dead weight of the glass, wind loading, and differential expansion due to temperature alterations.
Here are some applications of glass with spider glazing.
Exterior Glass Facades
Modern architecture has a clear edginess, a sense of futurism, and glass is the element that complements this attribute supremely well. In commercial buildings, exterior designs can use spider glazing glass to create a sleek façade. When the sunlight hits the glass surface, it will be reflected in a rainbow of colours, offering a natural glimmer. As we all know, glass facades are a notch up when it comes to stylish and trendy exteriors. Along with this, the occupants will be able to experience a good ambience as the glass allows natural light to flood in.
Canopies made of spider glazing glass are superior on two fronts - style and strength. With these additions to architectural designs, you will be getting functionality in an imaginative and stylish package. Glass canopies will protect from all weather conditions while one seeks shelter under it. They are great additions to extend an interior space or to assimilate an open section for space maximisation. Best of all, it is the glass solution with which you can achieve that refined modern sensibility with ease.
An atrium designed using spider glazing glass is the perfect solution to open up space in the interiors without compromising on safety. A highly practical option for improving lighting conditions, it can be customised to accommodate any structural setup. You can use it to allow copious amounts of natural daylight in your interiors and enjoy an expansive indoor ambience. Moreover, it will be highly functional irrespective of the weather conditions, all year round. Atriums will help you add a modern twist to your structures.
Spider glazing glass used in curtain walls will ensure maximum protection against air and water infiltration while providing robust support to the exterior structure. An exquisitely modern design option, glass curtain walls are most-suited for encasing the exteriors of a structure. They will allow natural light to pass through while keeping the interiors airtight. Manufactured using lightweight material, glass curtain walls require minimal maintenance. Truly, they are a modern masterpiece in structural design.
Glass entrances which are not encased in a frame often provide a sense of extension. There is also a sense of continuity to frameless entrances. This helps in creating a false sense of enlargement. By using a glass entrance with spider glazing, you can get a perfectly stylish but tough structural design. These walls are easy to maintain as glass does not require intensive cleaning. Along with this, you get to enjoy a transparent and unobtrusive view. For modern architecture, it is a novel design.
