Bolted Glazing

Structural glass systems (bolted glazing) have a proven track record in the most demanding applications.

Architects can have absolute confidence in our ability to create soaring facades, roofs, canopies or even clad an entire building knowing that the client will receive the most highly engineered system in the market.

Bolted glass is perfect for highly technical Major projects which require their structure to have a feeling of endless open space and an increase in the amount of light allowed into the building.

The numerous benefits that come with using bolted glass systems can now be achieved with ease through early engagement and collaboration with our in-house design team and our expert integrated project management service.

Due to having our own in-house teams, we’re able to take your Core build from concept to reality and assist you along the entire journey.

How it works –

  • A structural glazing system provides a flush glass surface by utilising stainless steel fittings housed in countersunk holes to fix the glass facade back to the structure instead of using the more conventional framed systems.
  • The result is a fully engineered system with the minimum of structure and the maximum visual clarity. A silicone seal between adjacent panels provides weatherproofing.

To fully customise your bolted glazing solution, there are multiple options for additional products that can be integrated into the system such as:

  • Automated doors
  • Signage
