point-fixed monolithic glass
LITE-WALL MONO is the system for point-fixed, flush-surfaced glass connections of monolithic glass which can be either fully tempered (FT) or laminated safety glass (LAMI). Screen-printed, enameld or satinised glass is allowed.
LITE-WALL MONO is the first point-fixed glazing system with European technical Certification ETA-09/0143 and has a general building permit in Germany (permit Nr. Z-70.2-19).
Using countersunk point fixings in connection with sub-frames of steel or glass, it is possible to build filigree glass structures.
For the connection to the under construction there are a number of articulated fittings available such as the patented (DE 19839419) spider solutions.

LITE-WALL MONO is a point-fixed performance unit of glass and integrated fitting.
The system bolt connections are factory pre-mounted onto the thermally toughened glass under controlled conditions. The units can be installed vertically or to a maximum angle of 10° to the vertical. For barrier-loadings or designed-in structural stiffening of the sub-construction it may be necessary to apply for construction permission from local Building Authorities.
Successful testing has been carried out for laminated glass in barrier-loading conditions.

1 | Connection principle and fittings
› Fixed- and sliding support system
The newly developed vandaglas eckelt spider fittings fulfill the technical requirements of the fixed and moving support system. The patented inserts allow tolerances to be easily accommodated and ensure through correct use the performance of fixed, horizontal moving and general moving support connections.

› Additional fittings
Technical information for applications is available as pdf files at the fitting range. DWG- and DXF-Files are only shown as drawings. For the files please click on one of the icons below.
Material data sheets are available on request.
Please note that structural certification of the connection fittings not the responsibility is of vandaglas ECKELT.

3 | Application technical notes
Permit for back-ventilated exterior wall cladding or vertical partition glazinglite-wall mono is the first point-fixed system which has been generally approved for construction in Germany by the German Institute for Building technology (DIBt) with permit number Z-70.2-19. For other European countries there is now a European technical certificate Nr. ETA-09/0143 available. The statutory regulations of each country must be accounted for in each application of LITE-WALL MONO.
4 | Glass dimensioning
Individual structural analyses have been determined for the applications as described in the permit. The number of point-fixings (4 or 6) and the type of fitting connection (fixed or articulated) are differentiated with independent tables. The tables are divided into glass dimensions and positive/negative design wind loads.

A correct choice of glass type can fulfill the most challenging design requirements. Apart from the standard composition of the basic floatglass, the permit also allows the following glass types to be used for LITE-WALL MONO:
- Laminated glass with coloured foils (PVB);
- Screen printed glass;
- Enamelled glass;
- Matted/etched glass;
- Mirrored glass;
- Low-iron (extra clear) glass;
- Anti-reflective glass.
