Client: Charles Henshaw & Sons
Architect: Wilson Mason Architects
Contractor: Skanska

Hansen supplied the ThermoSpan system to Charles Henshaw & Sons of Edinburgh who undertook all the design and installation. The project brief was to achieve minimal frame work whilst incorporating the customer's brand green colour identity. Hansen had to calculate the strength of the glass, as the maximum thickness of green tint available is 10mm. Additional strength was therefore required utilising the brackets and the glass fins.

The project benefited from single pieces of 10mm green toughened bolted back to a 19mm toughened glass fin. Each pane utilised 8 fixings back to the fin utilising the Hansen ThermoSpan Hook and Pin bracket. The maximum size panel on the building were almost 8m2 and up to 4600mm in height, showing the strength of the ThermoSpan system whilst displaying the capabilities of Hansen.
