Structurally Bolted Assemblies

Casu Consulto Limited is a market leader in the provision of structurally bolted / glazed assemblies, encompassing the following elements:

 

Structurally Bolted Facades:

This form of design intensive, bespoke glazing encompasses the fixing of glass via high grade stainless steel point fixings to a support structure. Typically, for vertical or raked glazing this support structure would consist of engineered toughened glass fins, or CHS / SHS steels tied back to the main structure of the building. The glass panels are sealed at the edges using structural silicone, providing an ‘all glass’ or frameless façade.

Structurally Glazed Facades:

Otherwise known as ‘Channel Glazing’ this method of glazing does not typically utilise bolts and is instead secured at the head and cill via an extruded non thermally broken channel or bespoke ‘back to back’ angles, with a silicone glass to glass joint. Often installed as a ground floor façade solution, the system is limited to circa 3m in height before glass fins or other support is required. Channel at the head and cill can be recessed or on show.

Glass Cubes / Entrances:

An elegant and modern alternative to standard lobby entrances or revolving doors, Casu has created a propriety all glass cube, supported via S/S goalposts or via glass fins and beams. These cubes provide a stunning and bespoke statement entrance to any building.We can incorporate automatic (bi parting or swing) doors if required. All glass can be double or single glazed, utilising high performance solar control.
