GLASSCON is probably one of the most qualified PREMIUM facade engineering companies! Glasscon's SPIDER GLASS CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS or point fixed glazing systems and spider glass walls, established our leadership and changed the way of thinking in constructions such as "HIGH TECH" glass curtain walls, canopies, atriums etc. Point fixed glazing systems and spider glass walls offer great transparency and unique designing solutions.
Regarding the GLASS CURTAIN WALLS with pre-stressed CABLES & TENSION ROD, these are glass curtain walls that are suspended from MINIMAL STAINLESS STEEL TENSION RODS or INOX PRESTRESSED CABLES. The SUSPENDED GLASS CURTAIN WALLS with CABLES & TENSION ROD is supposed to be the most '' LIGHT-WEIGHT, IMPRESSIVE and SUSPENDED CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM '', almost invisible to the eye, because they don't have any MASSIV steel or concrete substructure and they are completely FRAMELESS! The substructure is completely made from STAINLESS STEEL PRE-STRESSED CABLES or TENSION RODS, with tempered laminated glasses, connected via stainless steel INOX joints and silicon gaskets. However, the SUSPENDED GLASS CURTAIN WALLS with CABLES & TENSION ROD are completely airtight and waterproof.
