A Euroglass SPYDER glass canopy is the most common and architectural pleasing canopy system on the market.

Scope of Use
  • SPYDER Canopies are project specific. Site specific engineering and design must be undertaken.
  • There are many design loads and safety precautions that have to be considered within the design.
  • Usually a steel support structure is required and the steel must be fabricated in a manner to allow for the weight and spans of the glass.

SPYDER Canopies can be designed to be fixed to;

  • Steel Structures
  • Structural Timber Frames (Specific engineering and design must be undertaken)

SPYDER Canopies are designed and engineered to take;

Limitations on Use

SENTRYGLAS is a toughened laminated glass that has a rigid interlayer.
