Point Fixed Glazing
A point-fixed facade is built using panes of high performance glass fastened by bolt point fixings to a supporting metal structure. This specialist, structural glazing can be installed in single, double or triple glazed formats and provides a spectacular finish, particularly when used as part of a large scale, glazed facade or atrium.
Saint-Gobain high performance glass has been used to create a number of fully glazed, point-fixed facades. Saint-Gobain’s solution features high-grade stainless steel fixings, 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, which is distributed to the support structure.
If you require support to specify a bolt-fixed or point fixed façade, our team of experts can assist in the selection of the most appropriate facade glazing configuration that considers solar control, mechanical strength, safety and security, along with the overall aesthetic finish.
