Structural glazing specialists can advise on considerations and limitations of structural glass support structures and should be heavily integrated with your team during the design phase right through to handover


be eliminated not only in the logistics, but as early as the design phase. For example, the DGU is likely to be made from glass sheets laminated together on both the outside and inside faces. The thickness of glass panes such as these is something that was determined through innovative design engineering. The glass thicknesses and DGUs will be prepared and specified to project-specific requirements before approaching the glass processors and seeking float run availability and subsequent time frames.


This would normally be tackled by appointing a glazing specialist early, so that the design and engineering process can be progressed. The advantage is you can plan well ahead and tie into an oversize float run at the first opportunity.


Load bearing on glass sheets needs to be high on the list of design considerations. Glass fins and support systems are becoming more common within glass feature entrances and facades. Structural glazing specialists can advise on considerations and limitations of structural glass support structures and should be heavily integrated with your team during the design phase right through to handover. Glass ordered well in advance can be


stored and held in reserve – this is common practice for specialist glaziers and also allows a thorough product check of all units prior to install. This minimises the risks associated with availability and potential postponement of a float run through lack of demand. Glazing specialists also allow inspection by all involved parties to minimise any risk of wasted time and resource on busy, multi-contracted sites.


After the glass is received well ahead of


time, specialists are able to observe and plan with the glass coating plants, who have distinct criteria for oversize coating runs. They are applied to certain surfaces of the glass to assist with solar and thermal control; in addition anti-reflection and self-cleaning coatings are becoming more common in today’s market. Again, these coatings are run on cycles and require well thought out logistical planning and resource allocation to achieve the required finish.


The emphasis has to be on engaging with design process early, which permits a longer, more methodical lead into the oversize campaigns and coating runs. This allows all risks associated with the manufacture and installation of oversize glass to be managed and minimised.
