Cable-supported facades are probably the most delicate supporting structures for building envelopes in glass. They enable a very high light and solar energy yield and despite their light weight offer strength benefits.
Compared with post and beam facades, structural glazing facades are not rigid, but flexible. This is not a sign of lack of stability. On the contrary: due to their flexibility, rear-tensioned facades can be designed to be blast-proof as they partially absorb the force of an explosion. These kinds of designs have to be adapted on a project-specific basis, so please contact us.
