Structural silicone glazing (SSG) is the use of specific silicones to bond glass and metal panels to the structure, via a metallic sub frame, without mechanical fixation.

An SSG system can be designed to withstand live loads (wind load, line loads) and in some cases dead loads (weight of panel and imposed loadings).

Current systems in use include 4 sided and 2 sided. Please note that the insulated glass units also require to be silicone sealed.

A silicone bonded system provides unsurpassed weather-ability and UV resistance. Silicone has excellent levels of adhesion, movement capability and a wide service temperature (from -40 to +150 degrees C). The silicone itself is able to resist wind load, dead load and thermal dilation.

SSG offers almost unlimited design versatility and has transformed the skyline of cities across the world in the last two decades. In short SSG has opened new avenues for architects and façade designers to demonstrate the potential of glass.
