Point-fixed glass facade: Getting to the heart of beautiful facade ideas

If high transparency and a visual unit of the materials are called for, then a point-fixed glass facade with steel, chromium steel or aluminium profiles is used. The principle of framed glass surfaces is replaced by punctiform placed single holders based on friction or bearing stress connections. Point holders pass the occurring loads into a separate supporting structure, which can be placed both directly behind the glass surface as well as considerably separated from it.

Due to the effect of large bending and lateral forces on the glass, the point-fixed glass facade comes with correspondingly thick glazing. The load-bearing behaviour of punctiform supported glazing is decisively influenced by the placement of the holders and usually calls for complex static calculations.
