Glass point fixings

Point fixings for glass, also called glass holders, create frameless glazing that is often used for facades, railings or roofs. The small all-rounders are versatile, and elegantly set the scene for glass while visually receding into the background themselves. Point fixings from Bohle follow a stable design according to DIN EN 1991-1-1, and are precisely processed.

The structure of glass point fixings

We distinguish between two types of point fixingss: Rigid point fixings consist of two plates that are screwed onto a threaded rod. The pre-drilled glass pane fits between them. With the adjustable point fixings from Bohle, on the other hand, the basic body on the wall is considerably larger as it consists of two halves. This allows flexible readjustment of the wall distance of up to 10 mm - even after glazing.

Point fixings for stair railings

Point fixings are suitable for side mounting glass panels. This makes them a popular solution for stair railings, as well as for combinations of stair and gallery glazing. The design of point fixings creates a decisive benefit during installation: The distance between the glass panel and the stair tread is easily variable and can be adapted to the conditions.

Point fixings for glass railings

Point fixings become a special eye-catcher when they are used as railings or guardrails. Regardless of whether they are used indoors or outdoors. Compared to linear railing profiles, point fixings have a visual advantage because they are small and discreet.

The assembly of adjustable point fixings

A stable subfloor or background is essential for the secure mounting of point fixings. The fastening material required for mounting depends on this. The base body is attached to the background through a slotted hole, which allows inaccuracies to be compensated for when drilling. Then the glass pane is placed and the front plate is screwed to the base body through a hole in the glass.

It depends on the thickness of the glass

Stainless steel glass point fixings carry both ESG and VSG between 10 and 21.52 mm thick. The right choice of clamping inserts for the desired glass thickness is crucial. They are usually made of high-quality PVC. For the glass thicknesses 17.52 mm and 21.52 mm, a general test certificate from the building authorities (AbP) is also available. This means that spans of up to 2500 mm are possible with a glass height of 1300 mm.

Surface selection

For most installations, point fixings with stainless steel quality AISI 304 or V2A are used. For special stresses in the vicinity of salt or chlorinated water, and of the area of chemicals, the more resistant alloy AISI 316 or V4A is used. Both versions are available in 40 & 50 mm diameter and a wall distance of 25 - 40 mm.
