structural sealant glazing (SSG) facades

Bonded all-glass façades are called Structural Sealant Glazing façades (SSG façades). In SSG façades, the glass element is bonded directly to the frame. This frame is attached to the substructure. This creates a smooth glass surface without any frame joints.
