With the Spherical Jaws System, one can install a glass facade without drilling any holes in the glass.
The revolutionary Spherical Jaws System (SJS) allows for a punctual anchorage facade to be constructed without drilling holes in the glass.
A versatile, sustainable and economical option for facade construction, the Spherical Jaws System is developed by Lilli Systems and distributed locally by FG Trading together with a wide range of solutions for the realisation of facades, roofs, skylights, balustrades and canopies.
The SJS is designed with spherical joints, which are able to absorb the external stress and deflection of the panels, preventing over-tension. It is easy to install, low maintenance and has been used extensively worldwide and locally, for example in Atrium on 5th and the new Sasol Headquarters in Sandton.
Flexibility in design
The system’s flexibility lies in that it is available in various configurations. It is compatible with several main-frame materials including aluminium mullions, stainless steel tension rods or cables, glass fins and steel-carrying frames. Different types of cladding such as single glass, laminated glass and double glazing can be used, and the system also provides for variable angles using a standard bracket, allowing the ability to create three-dimensional form in a facade element.
Lilli Systems is continuously engaging in the research and development of new technologies for the building envelope in keeping with architectural trends.
How to specify?
Lilli Systems is available for specification on AutoSpec as part of the FG Trading product library.
In partnership with Lilli Systems, FG Trading also offers a technical service for projects that require components and systems to be customised to suit the architectural intent.
