Safe and Fast Glass Embedding Solutions for Glass Balustrades
When it comes to connecting glass to the frame, Sika always has a suitable and economical solution.
For full vision glazing and glass balustrades, ideally, the glass panes should be fixed to the floor with low punctual stress transfer to the glass. Especially as tempered and safety glass are typically used. Common installation methods are mechanical fixing methods (dry glazing) or cement based grout (wet glazing) with significant risks. Sika offers two-component polyurethane solutions, which have many advantages over other fixing methods.
- Stress-free embedding of glass balustrades
- Suitable for laminated safety glass
- Fast installation Use of standard U-profiles

In total vision glazing (TVG, fin glazing) and glass balustrades, the glass panes are fixed to the sub-frame minimising the stress on the glass by the use of an adhesive. With SikaGlaze®, the bottom glass edge is embedded in the floor rebate, resulting in uniform stress distribution. Protect against weathering by using Sika’s compatible Sikasil® WS silicone sealants. Furthermore, they permanently transfer the forces to the support structure. Sika’s range of high-modulus SG silicone adhesive sealants offers excellent properties for this purpose.
