Glass Wall Systems
Australian Glass Assemblies
Australian Glass Assemblies (AGA), located in Melbourne, Australia, has been manufacturing and designing structural glass wall systems for over fifteen years. These systems began with the traditional exterior patch plate systems and have evolved into the Austvision system, which incorporates Spider Austfix hardware to provide a structural glass envelope for building facades on any plane. The Spider Austfix system offers the benefits of completely flush external appearance as well as the design freedom for mechanical fixtures to be small and discreet to suit aesthetic objectives.
The Austvision Glass Fin System, which incorporates the Spider Austfix fittings, allows for a totally flush exterior surface over large expanses of glass. A glass fin stabilizer supports the glass façade as a back up structure while allowing for the maximum vision area. The glass fin stabilizers are connected to the glass façade by means of the Spider Austfix fittings, which allows transfer of the wind loading from the facade through the fins to the surrounding structure.

Austvision “Spider Tension Rod System
The Austvision Spider Tension Rod System is an alternative back up structure for glass facades, which incorporates high strength stainless steel tension rods in a vertical and /or horizontal truss design. The tension rod truss system provides a minimal profile while allowing for unusual and exciting design possibilities. They also provide the dynamic flexibility required to absorb thermal expansion and seismic movement. Details
