Point-supported canopies and facades are comprised of stainless steel spider fittings and tempered glass designed to resist site specific design loads. Glass attachment fittings are designed to flex when the glass is under loading to reduce stresses in the glass at the point fitting. Spider fittings are typically bolted to a steel back-up structure.
