A head connector is a necessary component of the system supporting structural glass fin walls.
While this component is standard on every system, the functions of the head connector aren’t standard from project to project. Whether the glass fin is supported from the top or the bottom (see Glass Fin Systems page for more details) has a huge impact on the way the way the head connector is designed.
The support structure of the building influences our design (we’re created these connectors for brand-new buildings as well as renovations on existing buildings).
The head connector should allow the glass to move with the exact patterns of your project – a “standard” head connector could increase the glass strain that causes breakage.
Please contact us if you’re working on a glass fin project and we’ll work with you to design a custom connector to your building’s specific requirements.
