Floating limitlessly above heads, the glass seems to extend past its steel perimeter. It glows in the light and shields passers-by from nature’s elements. This innovative approach to canopies is quickly catching the attention of architects worldwide.

Glass Canopy Company

Glass has become one of the architectural designer’s “go to” tools for accomplishing artistic expression. When a building’s entryway is image-critical, it makes perfect sense to get one of the highest quality material components physically close to the visitor, creating a positive first impression. The desire to create a first-class entrance has led designers to consider suspended glass on canopies used in the commercial construction marketplace.

JEI Structural Engineering works with a variety of glass canopy company’s including manufactures, glazing contractors and architects to achieve the desired results.

Recent projects utilizing the suspended glass approach have experienced fantastic advantages—as well as technical challenges—and require the expertise of a knowledgeable team of architects or designers and specialty glazed structure professionals.  [read more]
