What is structural glazing?
Simply put, structural glazing is term used to describe glass that is integral to the design of a building: It involves large glass panels, which usually bear some weight in the structure. Structural glazing can be used to create huge glass installations with minimal obstruction.
This is, of course, putting it fairly simply. There are myriad ways structural glazing can be implemented in a design - the most important thing to note is that we've come so far with glazing technology, glass can be used as a structural material in almost any situation.
It can bear weight both horizontally and vertically, and it can be bonded using everything from minimal glass beams and supports to heavy-duty steel struts, meaning it can be used on almost any scale, with almost any aesthetic imaginable. Everything from completely frameless sliding glass doors to load-bearing high-strength glass floors can be created.
