Glass Bolts

Glass Bolts

We offer options for articulatingThis term refers to the ability of a glass bolt to rotate in such a way that the glass can flex under load, relieving the stresses around the holes in the glass. and non-articulating glass bolts for both single- and double-glazed applications.

Use Articulating Bolts for More System Flex or a Curved Glass Effect
Articulating bolts reduce stresses in the glass by allowing up to 7.5 degrees of rotation. This also allows you to create facettedA surface that appears curved, made of flat pieces of glass. surfaces on glass walls and canopies. 

Some like seeing the hardware, some like to hide it.
Depending on the look that you’re going for, you can choose a button face cap mounted on the glass or select a countersunk bolt that mounts flush to the glass.

Bigger Bolts for bigger glass.
The larger your glass panel, the bigger the supporting bolt you need. From 10mm single-glazed to much thicker double-glazed glass glass – we’ve got you covered. If your glass falls out of this range – we’ll customize a glass bolt to fit your job.

Here’s some technical info for all the people that speak “glass”. 
There are many changes we can make to our glass bolts in line with our “Stella Standard” to ensure our hardware is modified perfectly for your project’s exact needs.  

  • Gasket Choices
    Fibre gaskets come standard with our glass bolts but our optional silicon gaskets can offer more flex and reduce stress on glass if needed.
  • Ferrule bushingsA non-metallic material placed into holes in the glass, it ensures that there is no direct contact between glass and steel. Also known as ferrules.
    A proper fitting ferrule bushing reduces the risk of glass breakage. We take the extra step to provide ferrule bushings of the right length to match your glass thickness. 
  • Choosing the right back-nut 
    Back nuts hold the glass onto the structure. If the back nut is not visible, you could save money by selecting a simpler “hex” or “acorn” nut.
Typically mounted to glass via spiders.
