05/21/2018 Glass Fin System is a point fixed glass wall utilizing glass structural support fin as wind bracing and can be a ground based, fully fixed or suspended installation. The system is quite simple in concept and utilize a glass fin set perpendicular to the glass lite at each vertical line of the glass grid.

The Glass Fin System uses fitting to transfer the loads to the glass fins. The use of spiders with structural glass fins is a versatile system providing clean lines to a building facade.

Fins are normally used as a vertical mullion but can be used as a horizontal transom or in overhead glazing applications. The most challenging aspect of a glass-fin wall occurs when the span is too great to be accommodated by a single piece fin, and a splice detail must be developed to create a fin comprised of multiple glass pieces.
