Walls along structural glazing refer to the vertical walls or supports that are used to hold in place large panels of glass that are used as a structural element in a building or other structure.
Structural glazing is a method of attaching glass to a building or other structure in such a way that the glass becomes a structural element, providing support for the weight of the structure and resisting wind and other forces.
The walls or supports along the edges of the structural glazing panels are typically made of metal or other strong, durable materials and are designed to provide stability and support for the glass panels. They may be hidden from view or may be visible as an integral part of the building’s design.

Walls along structural glazing detail drawing – 1
A wall along structural glazing detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the details of the construction and installation of the vertical walls or supports used to hold in place large panels of glass that are used as a structural element in a building or other structure.
The drawing would include information on the materials used for the walls, the dimensions of the walls and glass panels, the methods of attachment and installation, and any other relevant details.
This type of drawing is typically used by architects, engineers, contractors, and other building professionals to ensure that the structural glazing system is properly designed and installed.
It may also be used by regulatory agencies and building code officials to review and approve the design of the structural glazing system.
Here are a few more details that might be included in a wall along structural glazing detail drawing:
- Load-bearing capacity: The drawing would specify the load-bearing capacity of the walls and glass panels, indicating the maximum amount of weight that the system is designed to support.
- Anchoring: The drawing would show how the walls and glass panels are anchored to the building or other structure, including the use of bolts, brackets, or other fasteners.
- Seals and gaskets: The drawing would show the location and type of seals and gaskets used to ensure that the structural glazing system is weathertight and airtight.
- Finishes: The drawing would show any finishes applied to the walls and glass panels, such as coatings or laminated films.
- Connections: The drawing would show how the walls and glass panels are connected to each other, including the use of structural silicone, mechanical fasteners, or other types of connectors.
- Clearances: The drawing would show the required clearances around the edges of the structural glazing panels, including any minimum distances from other building elements or adjacent structures.
