Call for Price

  • Meets high architectural and engineering demands.
  • The efficient processing reduces installation time by approx 20% compared to clamping profiles.
  • No stiffening of the construction required – replaces wind bracings or steel structures.
  • The inner glass pane of the insulating glass takes over the stiffening of the construction.
  • Low thermal conductivity by using fiberglass instead of aluminum.
  • Silicone weather joints allow plain and uniform facade surfaces.
  • Pending approval for construction licensing.

Description

Two possible applications with FASCO®:

  • Non-load bearing fixed glazing without restriction of the glass dimension for 60 mm visible width of stud.

  • Load-bearing structural glazing for building reinforcement with an 80 mm width of the stud.
    (According to the KNAPP® manual, certification pending from the German Construction Institute.

Window and door openings can be integrated flush with the façade.
The high-quality gluing between glass and FASCO®-Profile by certified and authorized personnel is essential.

Requirements for buildings and geometry of the HGV element – FASCO® profile (load-bearing)

The following points are based on the KNAPP® manual, which is published by Holzforschung Austria. It is for the use of wood-glass composite elements with a structural-bearing function. Non-bearing fixed glazing is not subject to any of these requirements!

  • Floor height of fixed glazing.
  • Max. two floors can be reinforced with the structural glazing.

  • Different formats of the glass elements are permitted; the narrowest and widest glass elements are dimensioned.

  • Maximum length of the glass edge of the glass element is: 3.5 m

  • Minimum length of the shorter glass edge of the glass element: 1.0 m

  • Ratio length to height of the element: L: H = (1:1) to (2:1)

  • Bonding with tested 2K-silicones (SSG)


Glass panes – FASCO® profile (load-bearing)

  • Float glass, TVG or VSG according to building requirements.
  • 2- or 3-pane insulating glass with supporting edge joint must be made according to EN 13022-1.

  • The fall protection (emergency stop) must be carried out by means of mechanical brackets (in accordance with building regulations).

  • The load transfer of the glass weight is carried by a mechanical bracket that is installed under the glass pane center.


Features and advantages:

Our profiles made of glass-fiber-reinforced plastic meet highest architectural and engineering demands through a statically load-bearing glazing. Large, up to two stories, glass façades can be done without any additional reinforcement.

  • The slim look of the post provides architecturally sophisticated structures.
  • The efficient assembly reduces the installation time by approx. 20% in comparison to common solutions.
  • No reinforcement necessary – replaces wind or steel structures.
  • The inner pane of the insulating glass takes over the building reinforcement.
  • Low thermal conductivity by using glass-fiber-reinforced plastic instead of aluminum.
  • Scientifically proven performance (2001-2008)
  • Silicone weather joints allow even façade surfaces.
  • Pending building certification.
