GLASS FIN

Product Code : 372

Unique, custom designed, glass facades, entrances, storefronts, curtain walls, skylights, canopies, and other structures can add distinction, exceptional beauty, and expansive visibility to a construction project. However, these glass structures require meticulous engineering, extensive knowledge of materials and codes, broad experience, quality materials, and expert craftsmanship. Each design will have unique parameters and requirements which must be accurately addressed in order to provide a safe, functional, durable, weather-resistant glass structure which can withstand wind and seismic loads and thermal expansion and contraction. It is critical that unique glass structures be both designed and fabricated by a single, knowledgeable entity assuming complete responsibility. Piece-meal assembly of products from numerous manufacturers and fabricators without a comprehensive design and engineered solution is not a method for achieving a functional, safe, glass structure.

We can provide this essential sole source design and fabrication responsibility. They are a domestic company focused on the United States market. They provide glass luxury at affordable prices in a timely manner, designs and fabricate a wide variety of glass structures including facades, entrances, storefronts, skylights, canopies, glass fin systems, and tension truss structures.

This specification guide can be used to specify a custom designed and engineered glass structure using latest Optitech's glass fin technology. With this method glass main plates (panels) form the plane of the wall and are stabilized with vertical glass fins eliminating the need for metal mullions. The result is a total vision wall. Glass fin technology can be used for many types of structures such as entrances, storefronts, curtain walls, monuments, sculptures, decorative features, balconies, elevated floors, roofs, skylights, and canopies. Glass fin assemblies can be used on the interior, exterior, or the envelope of a building.

In contrast to more typical descriptive specifications, this section is a performance type emphasizing the critical factor of design and engineering. It provides a convenient format that can be edited to reflect the unique glass structure envisioned by an architect and ensure that it is correctly engineered, carefully detailed, accurately fabricated, and properly installed. Glass facades with entry doors, skylights, and canopies are specific uses of glass fin technology which can be specified using the following Optitech Glass specifications. These sections also include other technologies for the construction of facades, skylights, and canopies.

GLASS FACADES

GLASS SKYLIGHTS
GLASS CANOPIES
ALL-GLASS DOORS

Unique custom designed glass doors assemblies, facades, curtain walls, skylights, and other structures can add distinction, exceptional beauty, and expansive visibility to a construction project. However, these glass structures require meticulous engineering, extensive knowledge of materials and codes, broad experience, quality materials, and expert craftsmanship. Each design will have unique parameters and requirements which must be accurately addressed in order to provide a safe, functional, durable, weather-resistant glass assembly which can withstand wind and seismic loads and thermal expansion and contraction. It is critical that unique glass structures be both designed and fabricated by a single, knowledgeable entity assuming complete responsibility. Piece-meal assembly of products from numerous manufacturers and fabricators without a comprehensive design and engineered solution is not a method for achieving a functional, safe, glass structure.

Our specification section is organized by placing information in three standard parts:

GENERAL- Describes the design and performance criteria for the all-glass door assembly and other administrative and procedural requirements.

PRODUCTS- Describes materials, products, accessories, and fabrication methods to be used for the glass door assembly. 

EXECUTION- Describes how the components will be assembled and installed at the construction site.
