Parallel glazing fixing detail refers to the method used to secure glass panes in a parallel configuration, meaning that the edges of the panes are parallel to each other.
This can be done using a variety of methods, such as using structural silicone sealant, mechanical clips, or pressure plates to hold the glass in place. The specific details of the method used will depend on the type of building and the architectural design.

A parallel glazing fixing detail drawing is a technical illustration that shows the specific method used to secure glass panes in a parallel configuration.
It typically includes dimensions, materials, and assembly instructions for the various components used in the glazing system. The drawing may also include notes and callouts to indicate specific installation procedures or safety precautions.
It is generally used by architects, builders, and glaziers to ensure proper installation of the glazing system.
In addition to showing the method and materials used to secure the glass panes, a parallel glazing fixing detail drawing may also include information on the type of glass being used, such as its thickness and thermal properties, as well as the types of sealants or gaskets used to create a weather-tight seal around the edges of the glass.
It may also include information on the framing system used to support the glass, such as the type of aluminum or steel extrusions used, and how they are anchored to the building structure.
It is important that the parallel glazing fixing detail drawing be accurate, detailed and complete in order to ensure that the glazing system is installed correctly and functions as intended, in term of structural load and weather resistance.
A parallel glazing fixing detail drawing is an important tool that helps to ensure the safety and proper functioning of the glazing system, and it should be reviewed and approved by relevant authorities prior to installation.
