Skyline Patent Glazing System
Application

To be used to the external facade of a patent glazing system in commercial and domestic applications, and can accommodate the following:

  • Roof glazing/ rooflights.
  • Double and triple glazed applications (where compliance with Building Regulations Document L is a requirement).
  • Single glazing applications (such as feature canopies and unheated spaces).

Description

Two edge supported patent glazing system with slim, external extruded aluminium capping.

Features and benefits:

  • Sits in line with the roof due to the slim sightlines.
  • Offers an economical roof glazing solution.
  • The internal fin/ stalk provides inner glazing bar strength, and is cut away at the top and bottom main fixing positions.
  • Can accommodate single, double and triple glazing of any thickness.
  • Available with a choice of two cosmetic outer snap-on cappings which conceal all fixing screws and an external snap-on capping to allow for design flexibility.
  • Can be combined with opening vents to offer a complete glazing solution.
  • Versatile, and will suit most projects.
  • Can span up to 4 m when unsupported (while holding double glazed infills of 30 kg/m²).
  • Manufactured in accordance with BS 5516: 2004 Code of Practice for the design and installation of vertical and sloping patent glazing.

Product Options

Glazing bar:

Consult manufacturer before specifying a particular glazing bar.

- SPG2:

  • Double glazing: 1050–2630 mm.
  • Single glazing: 2000–3290 mm.
  • Canopy glazing: 1510–2810 mm.

- SPG3:

  • Double glazing: 1520–3530 mm.
  • Single glazing: 3500–4220 mm.
  • Canopy glazing: 1950–3610 mm.

- SPG4:

  • Double glazing: 2450–4470 mm.
  • Single glazing: 5000–6000 mm.
  • Canopy glazing: 2930–4970 mm.

Please note that the lower span values are calculated using the most extreme environmental loadings, whereas the higher span values are based on the least extreme. The manufacturer requests a site postal code to enable them to calculate the correct glazing bar type for every project. The glazing bar spans above are based on using 6 mm thick glass for the double glazed, single glazed and canopy types. Spans are dependent upon the site location and exposure rating, site altitude, distance from the sea, height of glazing from ground level, shape of the roof, pitch of glazing, glazing bar centres, glass weight, wind speeds, snow load, dead load and maintenance loads.

Glazing infill:

A variety is available, e.g. clear laminated, heat soaked toughened, etc. Consult manufacturer's literature for information.

  • Double: Any thickness. When used with high performance glazing units with warm edge spacer bars and argon filling, the system can achieve a thermal transmittance (U-Value) of 1.4 W/m²K.
  • Single: Any thickness.
  • Triple: Any thickness.

A 16 mm Argon gas filled cavity with warm edge spacer bars is supplied for double and triple glazing.
