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 and therefore results 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 offer amazing properties for this purpose.

Safe and Fast Glass Embedding Solutions for Glass Balustrades

When it comes to connecting glass to the frame, Sika has always a suitable and economical solution.

For total 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 normally used. Common installation methods are mechanical fixing methods (dry glazing) or cement gased grout (wet glazing) with significant risks. Sika offers two component polyurethane solutions which has many advantages over other fixing methods.
