Austvision SpiderTruss – Structural Glass System
The Austvision Spider Truss is Tension a Truss System for glass walls. The tension trusses are used as vertical or horizontal supports for wind bracing large glass facades.
The SpiderTruss System utilises two pre-tensioned catenaries supporting inward and outward wind loading. Loads are transferred from the glass through Austvision spider fittings to the compression struts. The trusses are tensioned between the floor slab and the roof structure.
