San Diego Blue Line Transit Expansion (MCTC)
A light-duty two arm V-shaped side-mounted spider fitting complete with two non-articulating glass bolts.
Non-articulating bolts for glass come in a simple assembly and can mount glass closer to spider (or structural) support than an articulating bolt.
Through our use of neoprene gaskets (A synthetic rubber that Stella uses as a gasket with our bolts for glass to provide a “soft connection” between the glass and the support structure) in the back assembly of bolts, they also provide some flex to reduce stresses in glass.
Useful for situation where access from the back is not possible, the 5-steps install process of a front-mounted bolt saves you time and money!
Step One – Fix the Stella bolt for glass to mounting structure.
Step Two – Remove the front cap of Stella bolt.
Step Three – Place the glass on Stella bolt.
Step Four – Secure the front cap of Stella bolt.
That’s it! You’re done!
Bigger Bolts for bigger glass!
The larger your glass panel, the bigger the supporting bolt you need. From 10mm single-glazed to much thicker double-glazed glass – we’ve got you covered. If your glass falls out of this range – we’ll customize a bolt to fit your job.
Here’s some technical info for all the people that speak “glass”.
There are many changes we can make to our bolts in line with our “Stella Standard” to ensure our hardware is modified perfectly for your project’s exact needs.
Fibre gaskets come standard with our bolts for glass but our optional silicon gaskets can offer more flex and reduce stress on glass if needed.
Ferrule bushings (A non-metallic material placed into holes in the glass, it ensures that there is no direct contact between glass and steel. Also known as ferrules.)
A proper fitting ferrule bushing reduces the risk of glass breakage. We take the extra step to provide ferrule bushings of the right length to match your glass thickness.
Choosing the right back-nut
Back nuts hold the glass onto the structure. If the back nut is not visible, you could save money by selecting a simpler “hex” or “acorn” nut.
Spectrum Series Finishes!
Stella is always looking for new an innovative ways to ensure that you have options for your projects. The Spectrum Series is a Hard Ceramic Coating that allows stainless steel hardware to be colour coated without the fear of chipping that alternative colour options usually have.
Stainless Steel coatings such as powder coating or paint are prone to chipping. This coating is much harder and has much better adhesion to stainless steel. This coating is also much thinner (0.75 umm – 1.0 umm thickness) which means threads stay operable even when coated.
Colours Options: Black, Gold, Silver/Grey, Rose Gold & Purple.
Available Textures: Matte, Brushed, Polished/Mirror.
Specialty Patterns: Designer or specialty patterns (camouflage for example) are available upon request. These options do cost more but may be able to achieve specialty patterns that are otherwise unavailable on Stainless Steel.
