Fins

The trend to open design invites more glass and less visible framing and structural support, with an increasing structural role for advanced laminated glass.

The extra stiffness of SentryGlas® structural interlayer reduces glass deflection and helps designers achieve light, airy structures.

SentryGlas® used in structural fins helps further increase overall facade or canopy transparency.  For more examples, explore the Design Gallery.
