FIRST Commercial 125mm, 150mm and 168mm Structural Glaze Systems
Description

A four-sided structural glazed, fully panelised system for low to high rise applications. Glass is adhered to the outer edge of the extrusions, reducing the visual effect of aluminium as viewed from the outside.

Opening sashes can be incorporated in the façade without interrupting the glass look. Sun control fins can be added to the outside of transoms and provide a strong horizontal decorative element.
