Grid Shell structural systems are another means to minimize the visual mass of structure. They can be used in vertical and overhead applications, as well as to form complete building enclosures.
With the cable truss, we have crossed an important line of demarcation in our progression towards system transparency and the dematerialization of structure.
The mast truss utilizes cable bracing as a strategy to reduce visual mass.
Truss systems employ a planar truss design, often in a hierarchical system that combines element types and tension components.
Enclos offers the most innovative curtainwall systems in the marketplace, combining aesthetic, performance and economic considerations into optimum solutions to our client’s needs.
Amongst cable structures, cable mullions achieve optimum transparency from one-way spans.
Structural glass facades often make use of different materials and processes than the conventional facade.
Mullion systems comprise a remarkably diverse range of novel structural solutions in facade applications. The simplest form includes a steel or aluminum section positioned at every vertical joint in the glazing grid.
Cable nets represent the ultimate in elegant minimalist structural systems, and provide optimum transparency when the effect of a sheer glass membrane is desired.
