    Tim Eliassen - Structural Glazing Pioneer

    A variety of solutions have been developed for supporting panes of glass in structural glass facades without relying on coplanar framing members installed at the joints between panes. The solution pictured here is a point-fixed bolted glass system using a spider fitting and perforated glass. A specially designed bolt-and-gasket assembly affixes the glass to one arm of the fitting. A thick gasket also separates the panes of glass.
