Structural Glazing

Structural glazing systems incorporating spacers and adhesives are now a widely accepted glazing option and are used in growing share of curtain wall, window and storefront installations.In fact, many people have come to regard structural glazing as the superior method of glazing. When properly installed, the structural sealant forms a continuous, waterproof seals against leakage and air infiltration.

The Sealant and spacer transmit wind load movement to the structure and withstand flexure , tension, compression, and different thermal shear stresses. Silicone resists UV, ozone and other environmental exposures and does not take on a compression set or lose resiliency. While Structural sealants generally carry a 20- years of exposure still demonstrate elasticity, adhesion and strength.
