The Austvision Spider Glass Fin System is a point fixed glass wall utilizing glass structural support fin as wind bracing and can be a ground based, fully fixed or suspended installation.
The Glass Fin System uses the Austvision 445 Series heavy duty spider fitting to transfer the loads to the glass fins. The use of spiders with structural glass fins is a versatile system providing clean lines to a building facade. The glass fins are normally used as a vertical mullion but can be used as a horizontal transom or in overhead glazing applications.
The glass fixing connections can be flush countersunk or exterior disk for use with fixed connections or articulated swivel heads. The Austfix articulated swivel head glass fixing unit is designed to reduce the stress concentration and stress build-up around the glass hole. This helps to reduce bending stress at the corner of the glass panel on a point supported system. The result gives improved performance for the glass panel and lifetime history of the glass façade system in a building.
