Post-and-girder system Forte FA50-K50
FA50-S20 is a structural glazing system with no visible external plates – a smooth glass facade with silicone joints. Insulating glass units are assembled with structural silicone and attached to the supporting profile using a spacer frame of the insulating glass unit and a connecting profile.
Load-bearing frame of the post-and-girder system is placed on the inner side of the wall
When using this system, there is no need to install external aluminium profiles
(decorative covers). The main aesthetic difference of this facade solution is
lack of clamping and decorative covers; only glass and filled seams are visible. Structural
glazing system is a smooth facade with 20 mm wide silicone or rubber (EPDM) seams
between the filling elements, which creates the “glass wall” effect and allows achieving a feeling of lightness
and integrity of the building. Installation of hidden flaps creates a feeling of facade integrity, since
in closed position they do not differ from blind elements. Bearing frame profiles are visible
only from inside the room (posts and girders are 50 mm wide).
