It’s an innovative supporting system for glass without drilling or cut out that can be uses with monolithic, laminated or insulating glass
Tensyon’s greatest innovation is its system of studs in composite materials, featuring top mechanical resistance and REI certified for fire resistance. This feature allows for the setting up of glass panels in direct contact, avoiding the complication of gaskets and fillers. The use of this type allows to absorb all glass movements due to the impact of wind and forces acting on the façade. In this way the function of articulated screws (rotules) that allows both axial and rotation movements it’s maintained, while eliminating the inconvenience of holes and tempering.
The result is a significant cost reduction, making point fixing facades affordable for lower budgets.
The absence of holes also eliminates one of the major limits of point-by-point support: its difficult application
in case of double-glazing, now a must given the growing focus on responsible energetic efficiency in buildings and structures.
The same problem is also eliminated in case of photovoltaic surfaces and in the integration of components within glass panes.
Through a project conceived from the start through accurate structural simulations with FEM (Finite Element Method) and clearcut requirement performance charts, we have achieved truly high resistance levels for all components. Each support can tolerate weights up to approximately 2000N with minimum deformation and the highest safety.
Such results dovetail with present-day designer trends of larger panes, in order to achieve the best possible see-through effect, while at the same time meeting contemporary requirements for a more streamlined energy performance.
Tensyon represent a truly innovation in point fixing accessories not only for what we have previously decrypted but especially for the integration of a double cable clamp for the fixing of steel wires directly in its body, this features allows an easy use of this support in tension structures.
The integration of the cable clamp in the support body allows also an important reduction of the space between glass and bearing structures (about 60 mm).
Tensyon Evo is a less specialized component of the previous system: it no longer allows for the fixing of steel wires, but acquires new lightness and functionality, becoming a versatile solution for any requirement, from facades to coverings. Its «smart»
design, especially refined in its elegant and streamlined shape, makes it ideal for interiors and furnishings, as well as for exhibition booths or display needs in general.
