Finzone Structural Glazing

Frameless glazing is not to be confused with structural glazing, in which the glass actually holds up the building. Structural glass works by using toughened glass that has been laminated, or set in layers. Sometimes these layers can be four or five layers deep. The resulting glass can be double or triple glazed.

The structural requirements are defined by the Building Regulations. The actual strength of the glass is determined by the size and thickness of the sheet and, consequently, the cost of using structural glass varies enormously depending on how large the spans involved are.
