For a clean, minimal aesthetic, Wisconsin Solar Design offers point-supported-glass installations. These fix the glass in place at a few locations using small, stainless steel arms/posts (often called spider fittings); joints are generally butt glazed and sleek.
Though PSG canopies have fewer components, they require careful engineering. Loads on the glass are concentrated around the fittings and vary based on spacing and geometry. Fittings need to be carefully selected based upon a number of different criteria. PSG systems should always be reviewed by qualified, well-versed professional engineers.
Wisconsin Solar Design’s in-house engineering staff has proven experience with PSG systems, and works hand-in-hand with our installation crews for elegant, safe results.
