A structure glazing member is a component or system used in the construction of buildings or other structures for the purpose of holding or supporting glazing (glass or transparent material) in place.
This can include framing systems, sealants, and other materials that are used to secure the glazing in place and provide a weather-tight seal.
Structure glazing members are commonly used in building facades, skylights, and other applications where transparency and natural light are desired.

Structure glazing members detail drawing – 1
A structure glazing members detail drawing is a technical illustration that shows the specific design, dimensions, and installation details for a structure glazing member.
This type of drawing is typically used by architects, engineers, and builders to understand the requirements for installing and attaching structure glazing members to a building or other structure.
It shows the layout of the member with all the dimensions, the type of fasteners to use, type of sealant to be used, any special requirement, load calculations and also the type of glazing to be used. It also shows the details of the surrounding structure and how the glazing member attaches to it.
This information is crucial for ensuring that the glazing is installed correctly and will function as intended.
In addition to the information mentioned above, a structure glazing member detail drawing may also include information on the materials and finishes of the member, such as the type of metal or plastic used, any coatings or surface treatments, and the type of glazing that will be used.
It may also include information on the load-bearing capacity of the member and any special requirements for fire resistance or energy efficiency.
