Stainless Steel Glass Spider Castings
What are stainless steel Glass Spider Castings?The stainless steel Spider Castings, or Glass Spider Fittings, are hardware or castings for mounting glass to walls, posts, fins, or other structural substrates. It is a stainless steel material casting.Mainly, it is classified into Fin Spider fittings and Point fix Spider fittings. The stainless steel glass Spider Castings are available in 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-arm configurations in two finishes. It can be used with different glass thicknesses. It is produced by stainless steel casting method. It can be used separately. In installing, it needs to connect bolts and other component. Because glass spider fitting is just the name of a part, and can not be fixed itself. Shortly speaking, its function is used to connect the bolt to fix the glass. At the same time it will be a force that passes to the connecting parts. Thus to have the effect of fixing function by the connecting of whole set. So, stainless steel glass spider fitting is an important parts on glass curtain wall.
Grades of Stainless Steel Casting Spider Fittings
Stainless steel has high strength, flexibility and resistance to corrosion. It is the most ideal casting material for producing glass spiders. Here is the 3 stainless steel casting grades for spider fittings : 304 stainless steel, 316 stainless steel and 2205 duplex stainless steel.
|304 Stainless Steel||316 Stainless Steel||2205 Duplex Stainless Steel|
|The material composition of 304 stainless steel is most suitable in applications where it is not introduced to any harsh or severe treatments. The Chromium-nickel alloy of 304 stainless steel makes it somewhat durable and resistant to corrosion and oxidation, though much lower in comparison to 316 Marine Grade also when compared to 2205 Duplex.||When exposed to chloride and other chemical based environments such as salt water. 316 stainless steel shows a high resistance to corrosion, oxidation and heating as compared to 304 stainless steel. Furthermore, in comparison to 304 stainless steel, it is more durable, easier to fabricate, requires lower maintenance as it is easier to clean. 316 also hold the advantages of being easier to finish and weld.||2205 Duplex stainless steel combines most of the advantageous properties of ferritic and austenitic steels making it one of the highest grades of stainless steel casting. Due to the duplex nature of the stainless steel alloy, its Pitting and Crevice Corrosion Resistance provides a high resistance to corrosion in most chloride-based environments, giving it a high durability against chloride stress corrosion cracking. Apart from its lowest alloy, all Duplex 2205 stainless steels have much higher tensile strength and yield strength than both 304 and 316 Marine Grade stainless steel combined.|
By comparison, the cost of 304 stainless steel for casting spider fittings is the lowest. But in terms of strength and corrosion resistance, 2205 duplex stainless steel is the best choice.
Advantages of Stainless Steel Casting for Glass Spider
- 1. There are a wide range of spider fittings: 1 way spide fittings, 2 way spide fittings, 3 way spide fittings and 4 way spide fittings. All these types of spider fittings can be realised by stainless steel casting with the workforce of molds, which can not be replaced by other manufacturing processes.
- 2. Stainless steel casting is the copy process by casting spider fittings separately, which is more better to keep the consistency and control the quality in high production efficiency.
- 3. With stainless steel casting, a good size accuracy (CT5-CT6) and surface finish (Ra6.3) can be expected for spider fittings, and machining can be saved.
The applications of stainless steel glass spider
Since each piece of glass is unable to connect itself,a huge glass curtain wall is completed connected by various components.Such as glass spiders.
Such glass curtain wall needs to have bearing function. Then, the components of the glass wall supporting are not afraid of sun.Because of the glass curtain wall is transparent.And the outside has to withstand wind,rain and sun. Many materials that under the UV rays of the sun will be damaged can not be used. As stainless steel glass spider fittings have the features of anti-pressure and anti-corrosion, so very good to use here.
Glass curtain wall in the connection is requested very tight, but also better stretching resistance.It should have the function of waterproof and windproof, don’t ooze water, when it rains and windy, also can’t leak. Besides, also have good anti noise ability. Stainless steel glass spider fitting plays the leading role in the connecting of glass and glass. The quantity of stainless steel glass spider fittings required in use depend on the pieces of glasses and the demand of the design, so the most important is to do science connections, security and fixed.
Stainless steel glass spider fittings have a variety of shapes. The shapes of stainless steel glass spider fitting is decided by the design of the whole glass curtain wall and the shape of glass used. There are a variety of shapes of glass spider fittings, which are all used as a set. If it is one way glass spider fitting, then connect one bolt. If two ways, then use two bolts, if it is a three way spider fitting, use three bolts, in the same way, four ways should use four bolts can form a complete set. That is to say, more ways should use more bolts.
In the connection of stainless steel glass spider fittings and bolts, it is a technical question. Never look down upon the connection process, whether a sheet of glass curtain wall is strong and beautiful, the decision factor is whether the connection of glass spider fittings is smooth and solid. So, the connection must be meticulous, although the material is good, absolutely can’t occur technical problems caused by quality problems.
