Point supported system

The glass is supported by metal supporting devices at its corner and perimeter and fixed on curtain wall supporting structure connected through these supported devices. Therefore the loading on glass transfers to curtain wall supporting structure by supporting devices at joints. Point fixing glass curtain wall can be divided into two styles, one is hole point fixing and the other is clamp point fixing according to the forms of glass supporting devices.

Hole supported system is to support the glass in a few points by a stainless steel connector(known as spider connector). The stainless steel spider connector could be supported by stainless steel ropes, bars, steel truss or glass fin.
