With a proven track record in the most demanding applications, it lets architects create a complete glass envelope for buildings, with façades on any plane. So you can build highly attractive working environments with more light and a greater feeling of space.
Support structures, located internally or externally, can be as subtle or as dominant as you wish. They are made with glass fins, a conventional steel construction, or the revolutionary Pilkington Planar™ Tension Structure design. Quality is assured by the exclusive use of Pilkington Optifloat™ glass, with fabrication and design carried out in an ISO 9000 certified manufacturing facility in St Helens, UK. The only one in the world, in fact, that is dedicated solely to structural glass systems.
Further reassurance comes with Henshaw's and Pilkington's heritage. Both are world leaders in glass manufacture and installation for over 100 years, supporting constant innovation with sophisticated research and the most rigorous product testing programmes.
Henshaw, who offer a comprehensive in-house design service for the complete system including a full range of steel beam, tension wire and truss structural support options, have installed numerous prestigous Planar™ projects throughout the UK.
