Full Product Details
EAG’s SYSTEMSTAX sees the culmination of a design and development programme to produce a frameless glazing solution to give the designer maximum façade transparency without the necessity to drill holes through the glass. This allows the use of standard double glazed units with glazing specifications and products from any glass manufacturer.
The concept of the system is the 'stacking' of one glass unit on top of another with all the dead load of the glass and fittings being transferred through the glass itself to the lowest level.
Not only are economies achieved in not drilling the glass, but the building designer and engineer are at liberty to reduce the dead load carrying capacity of the building frame, as only the wind load forces applied through the cladding have to be accommodated.
Each component within SYSTEMSTAX has been engineered to a level of load capacity such that it can be confidently specified for major conurbations in the UK, without the need for extensive project specific calculations and engineering.
The castings are produced by a lost wax process in accordance with BS3100 and BS6615:CT9 standards by an ISO accredited specialist and can be finished and polished to project requirements. Bulk manufacture of the castings and fittings give rise to cost benefits across many projects.
