The art of structural glazing is the creation of clean uninterrupted spans of glass using minimal metalwork and no external framing. Suitable for use in both internal and external applications, a structural glass assembly works equally well filling an atrium void as it does forming the external envelope of a building.
Saper Glass are approved installers of PILKINGTON PLANAR and using Planar can offer a complete range of structural glass solutions to suit virtually any application. Depending on the performance requirements the glazing can be of single glazed, double glazed or laminated glass construction and can also be used for sloping screens and glass roof applications.
To complete the package, Saper Glass also offer a wide range of entrance door systems. In addition to simple manually operated pivoting doors we also offer specialist automatic sliding door systems that can be mounted directly onto the glass façade and revolving door systems which can either be a conventional framed systems or an all glass system. A revolving door is ideally suited to high traffic applications as it remains weather sealed during operation and prevents heat escape and draught issues that can often be an issue with other door types. Consideration does need to be given to applicable DDA requirements and it is often necessary to incorporate a suitable power assisted pass door in conjunction with a revolving door installation.
