GLASS FIN STRUCTURES

***** 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.

Innovative Structural Glass, Inc. 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. Innovative Structural Glass, Inc. designs and fabricates 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 Innovative Structural Glass's glass fin technology. With this method glass mainplates (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 Innovative Structural Glass specifications. These sections also include other technologies for the construction of facades, skylights, and canopies.

SECTION 08 63 10 (08631) - GLASS SKYLIGHTS

SECTION 08 44 29 (08973) - 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.

Innovative Structural Glass, Inc. 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. Innovative Structural Glass, Inc. designs and fabricates a wide variety of glass structures including door assemblies, 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 all-glass door assembly. 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. This specification section is organized by placing information in three standard parts: 

        PART 1 - GENERAL Describes the design and performance criteria for the all-glass door assembly and other administrative and procedural requirements. 

        PART 2 - PRODUCTS Describes materials, products, accessories, and fabrication methods to be used for the glass door assembly. 

        PART 3 - EXECUTION Describes how the components will be assembled and installed at the construction site.
