Point Support

Introduction

Point-supported canopies and facades are comprised of stainless steel spider fittings and tempered glass to resist wind load and snow load requirements. Glass attachment fittings are designed to flex when the glass is under loading to reduce stresses in the glass at the fitting connection’s. Spider fittings are typically bolted to a steel back-up structure.
