The 4150 SSG, Structural Glazing facade system, consists of 50 mm wide insulated aluminium mullions and transoms. The system is based on double glazing units with a warm edge and a specially developed mounting profile for installation fittings. The glass panes are anchored in the mullions and transoms with the help of installation fittings. The weather seal between the glass panes is done with the use of an approved sealing compound, usually black. The design of the inside gasket and the insulating strip optimises the insulation of the profiles.
The mullions are designed so as to ensure stability under the dimensioning loads and are joined together with hidden joints. The system also includes opening units, which can be easily integrated. The U value of a facade must be calculated for the entire facade.

Unprotected glazed surfaces that can be reached by persons shall be designed to limit the risk of injury. Such glazed surfaces shall be dimensioned so as to withstand the dynamic influence of a person. Applicable standards and requirements should be taken into account.
The illustration shows the different functional dimensions commonly used by the window industry and established by the MTK. The gaskets are made of EPDM rubber and are available in several versions.
The facade system can be easily complemented with 4074 outward opening windows and 2086 doors.
The 4074 window system is suitable for integrating in the facade system. The outward opening windows can be provided with fittings for either horizontal or vertical projecting function.
The 2086 door system includes inward and outward opening, single or double leaf doors. Entrance sliding doors are also available.
- Profile depth 84 mm
- Insulated aluminium profiles
- Rebate for double glazing units
Formula for calculating the total U value of a facade, taking into account the glazing unit, the share of profiles and the edge zone effect the linear factor.
Ucw = ( Ag * Ug + Af * Uf + Ig * ψg ) / ( Ag + Af )
