Austvision SpiderCanopy

Glass Canopy System 

The Austvision SpiderCanopy System can be used for both residential and commercial applications requiring large panes and support spans for high design wind, snow and live loads. 

The SpiderCanopy System utilises Austvision 445 series or 446 series spider fittings to transfer the loads from the glass to the supporting members. Use of the spider fittings reduces installation time and provides ease of adjustment on site.

Fixed disc or swivel fittings can be used, which are designed with 6° rotation in any direction and these reduce the stresses around the glass holes compared to conventional fixed disc fittings. 

Types

The SpiderCanopy System has 4 fixing options;

443 series – 4 way or 2 way light duty spider fittings

444 series – 4 way or 2 way light duty spider fittings

445 series – 4 way or 2 way heavy duty spider fittings

446 series – 4 way or 2 way heavy duty spider fittings 

Glass fixings can be M10 CSK Disc or 60/22-22n swivel disc to suit the application and glass thickness  

Material and Finish
