Is a Point Supported Glass Facade Right for Your Retail Store?
If you’re a retailer/designer trying to show off a product, you want it to be clearly visible with uninhibited views right at eye level. If you’re promoting your product in a catalog, you want to make sure you use high-quality photography. Likewise, if you own a flagship retail store, you want window shoppers to clearly see your products on display through the glass to maximize brand awareness.
Point-supported glass systems are a great solution for any retailer who has a high visibility, prime location storefront. There are various ways that these highly transparent facades can be implemented to meet your needs.
The Uniqlo Flagship Retail Store located at 666 5th Avenue in New York City is a great example of what a low-iron point-supported glass fin system can achieve for a brand. Rising three stories above the hustle and bustle of the city, the Pilkington Planar™ structural glass facade prominently displays its interior retail space with an artistic flair.
These point-supported systems are the perfect solution for showcasing particular products or proudly displaying the retail space within. If you have any questions about point-supported systems or if you are looking for help designing your next point-supported glass storefront, feel free to contact us for assistance!
