According to the invention, a groove (8, 108, 232) is cut, at least in sections, in the edge of the insulating glass pane (3, 103, 203, 303), a holding arm (13, 113, 223) of a glass pane holding device (9, 109, 207) engaging in said groove and being fixed to a screw groove (6, 106, 206) of the profiled element (2, 102, 202) by means of at least one screw. The invention is characterised in that the side of the glass pane holding device (9, 109, 207) facing the profiled element (2, 102, 202, 302) has an essentially planar bearing surface or lower side (14, 114, 212) which can be applied to the front edges of the screw grooves (6, 106) of the profiled element (2, 10). Preferably, a strip-type attachment (117, 13) is provided on the lower side of the glass pane holding device (9, 109, 207), said attachment being slightly inserted into the screw groove in order to centre the glass pane holding device (9, 109, 207).

Description

 Facade and / or skylight construction and associated tools for

Assembly of the surface elements

The present invention relates to a facade and or light roof construction for buildings according to the preamble of claim 1 and an associated tool for mounting the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes.

From AT 398 796 a glass holder for an insulating glass element for glass facades of buildings is known which has laterally protruding retaining pins which can each be inserted into a groove on an insulating glass pane. The glass holder also has a fastening strip which can be inserted into a screw groove in the facade profile. For fastening the glass holder, a feed-through for a screw is provided which can be screwed into a screw groove on the profile in order to fix the glass holder and to fix the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, to a seal. A disadvantage of this known glass holder is that it is relatively difficult to assemble. Because during assembly, the strip-shaped protrusion must be threaded into the screw groove and the lateral retaining pins must also be inserted into the grooves on the insulating glass pane. This is usually done by angling the glass holder when the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, are only loosely suspended. This

However, the procedure is relatively complicated and it is not possible to retrofit a glass holder with fixed surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, which has holding pins on both sides. It is therefore an object of the present invention to further develop the facade and / or light roof construction of claim 1 in such a way that the glass holder for attaching insulating glass elements to profiles is easy to assemble, with subsequent assembly preferably also being possible with fixed insulating glass elements. It is also intended to be a tool for easy assembly the corresponding surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, are created.

This object is achieved with a glass holder with the features of claim 1. Thereafter, the glass holder on the side facing the profile has an essentially flat contact surface which can be placed on the front edges of the screw grooves of the profile. Preferably, a strip-shaped projection is provided on the underside of the glass holder, which can be inserted slightly into the screw groove in order to center the glass holder.

If the glass holder essentially has a flat underside on the side facing the profile, which can be placed on the screw groove for fastening the glass holder, the glass holder can be assembled more easily since there is no web in the screw groove and at the same time a lateral holding arm in the groove an insulating glass pane must be inserted. Rather, the glass holder can be placed on the screw groove from above and only has to be attached laterally with the holding arm in a corresponding groove in the insulating glass pane. Especially when only one holder arm is provided on the glass holder, this threading process can be carried out relatively easily.

Since a strip-shaped extension is also provided on the underside of the glass holder, which can be inserted into the screw groove in a slight way to center the glass holder (this means that the centering takes place, in particular less than 2 mm, for example 0.5 mm), assembly is further simplified, since the glass holder is automatically aligned via the attachment when tightening.

Lateral insertion bevels are preferably additionally provided on the attachment, so that centering into the desired position takes place in the event of any inclination before tightening.

The glass holder is preferably also rotatably arranged on the end edges of the screw groove in order to bring the at least one lateral holding arm into engagement with the groove in the insulating glass element. Due to the rotatable design of the glass holder, it can be easily mounted, since the glass holder can be placed on the screw groove of the profile, the holding arm or arms are aligned parallel to the screw groove, and then can be positioned by rotating the glass holder by 90 ° so that the or the

Engage the holding arms in the grooves of the insulating glass elements.

The position of the insulating glass elements and the profile can already be fixed for retrofitting, and the glass holder can easily be installed even in confined spaces. The glass holder can be manufactured with a comparatively small size, which also leads to cost savings.

According to a preferred embodiment of the invention, two grooves are provided in the support surface, into which the end edges of the screw groove can be inserted when the at least one lateral holding arm is positioned in the groove of the insulating glass element. Such grooves provide an assembly aid which indicates to the fitter the correct alignment of the lateral holding arm or arms in the grooves, since the glass holder is slightly locked during the rotational movement. For such an assembly aid, it is also sufficient if, instead of the grooves, only a central projection on the glass holder is provided, which engages in the screw groove as soon as the strip-shaped projection is aligned parallel to the screw groove. The provision of grooves in the contact surface has the advantage that overturning the glass holder becomes more difficult, especially if the end edges of the screw groove can be inserted into the grooves essentially in a form-fitting manner.

The screw channel in the glass holder preferably has a receptacle for a head of a screw, which is arranged below the groove of the glass holder. This means that the screw can be countersunk during assembly to leave the groove free so that the glass holder can be gripped and rotated by a tool for assembly. The screw head does not hinder this process, since it is arranged in the receptacle below the groove. After installing the glass holder, the groove can then be used to pull in a seal. The groove is therefore preferably undercut so that a sealing foot can be fixed in the groove.

If a holding arm is provided on opposite sides of the glass holder and the glass holder is symmetrical along a central plane parallel to the groove of the glass holder, incorrect assembly is avoided since both holding arms can be screwed equally into the respective groove of an insulating glass element. With two holding arms, insulating glass elements can be fixed on opposite sides of the glass holder, while a glass holder with only one holding arm is provided on the edge of a facade construction on an insulating glass element.

A facade construction with insulating glass elements is also provided, each of which has a groove at least in sections on the edge and is fixed to profiles via a plurality of glass holders according to the invention. An insulating strip is arranged in the screw groove on the profile next to the glass holders, so that high thermal insulation is also achieved in the area of the profile.

The glass holder and the insulating strip preferably have approximately the same height and a seal with a sealing foot is fixed in the groove of the glass holder and an insulating strip adjacent to it in a groove. As a result, the seal can be fixed all around an insulating glass element and the seal can be fixed with high accuracy, the contact pressure of the sealing lip being sufficient for sealing. The filling of the joint between two insulating glass elements with silicone or another filling material, which was previously customary in the prior art, can therefore be dispensed with, since the fastening of the seal in the insulating strip and the glass holder ensures adequate sealing and insulation.

If a continuous groove for fixing a seal is provided on the upper side of the glass holder facing away from the profile, the supporting structure can be sealed in a simple manner. The groove on the glass shark is preferably ter undercuts formed so that a sealing foot can be drawn into the groove. For particularly good thermal insulation, an insulating strip can also be provided in the screw groove adjacent to the glass holder, in which a groove is provided on the side facing away from the profile, into which a continuous seal can be inserted, which can then be attached to the insulating strip and the

Glass holder is set. This support of the seal makes it possible to dispense with subsequent filling of the gap between two surface elements with silicone. This is because the seal is consistently supported in such a way that corresponding sealing lips can be placed on the end faces of opposite surface elements with a certain amount of prestress, so that no additional sealing is required.

The glass holder can preferably be fixed to the profile by means of two screws, so that the glass holder is held on the profile so that it cannot rotate. The heads of the screws can be arranged substantially recessed below the groove in the glass holder, so that the functionality of the groove, for example for receiving the seal, is retained.

To accommodate particularly large loads, the transition between the at least one holding arm and one side wall of the glass holder is rounded, preferably with a radius of more than 5 to 10 mm.

According to an independently observable variant, a holding arm of the glass holder, which can be inserted into a groove in an insulating glass pane, is curved as seen in the axial direction of the profile. As a result, the holding arm can be inserted into the groove at an angle, and the insulating glass pane can be mounted at the corresponding angle on the profile or to an adjacent insulating glass pane. If the holding arm of a glass holder is curved on both sides of the profile, the surface elements can be arranged at the desired angle to one another, for example in a corner region at 90 °. This means that they can also be used in so-called structural glazing constructions in which fastening elements do not extend over the outer pane of the insulating glass protruding disk. Due to the curvature on the holding arm, the glass holder can also be used for different angles, namely if the curved end section is shortened, so that only part of the K-curvature is left, so that the insulating glass pane can be attached at a different angle relative to the profile is. This means that only one glass holder needs to be kept ready for different angles.

According to a preferred embodiment, the at least one holding arm has a central section which extends parallel to the base section and an adjoining end section which is curved toward the profile. If the curved region of the holding arm would immediately extend from a contact surface on the profile to one side, there would be too little space for the fastening means on the profile, since the surface elements are to be accommodated with a certain amount of play in the lateral direction. The straight middle section thus bridges the necessary lateral distance between the fastening of the glass holder and engagement in the groove of the insulating glass pane.

Grooves for marking an angle of the curvature are preferably provided on the curved end section of the holding arm. As a result, the glass holder on the construction site can be easily adapted to the desired angle for fixing the insulating glass pane, the holding arm being cut off along a groove, if necessary. The curved end section can have a wave-shaped cross section and a wave trough can form a marking for separating a part of the end section that is not required and a wave crest can form a linear contact surface for the wall of the groove and an insulating glass pane. Such a wave crest also has the advantage that a certain tolerance compensation can take place, for example if the insulating glass pane swings or moves somewhat as a result of pressure or heat loads. The spherical sections of the wave crests cause a linear surface to lie against the wall of a groove in the insulating glass pane in order to compensate for small tolerances. For easy attachment of the glass holder, a protruding centering lug is provided on the bottom section for insertion into a screw groove on the profile. This ensures that the glass holder is precisely positioned on the profile.

If the bottom section is designed in the form of a strip and can then be fastened to the profile by means of two screws, the glass holder is prevented from rotating and high loads can be removed.

The glass holder preferably has a hollow chamber in which the heads of

Screws for fixing the glass holder can be removed. As a result, the holding arm can connect to the top of the hollow chamber, so that a flat surface is formed towards the outside, which is particularly well suited for the attachment of filler material, in particular since the filler material can also be positioned flat and does not curl.

According to the invention, a support structure for angularly arranged surface elements with a corresponding glass holder is also provided. The curvature on the glass holder can be designed such that adjacent surface elements can be fixed, for example, at an angle between 90 and 160 °. The grooves for receiving a seal on the profile are then preferably held on the profile, wherein the orientation of the groove on the profile can be changed by a bend. This eliminates high storage costs for different profiles and glass holders, since different angles of the surface elements to one another can be realized with one and the same glass holder or profile.

According to a further variant, an insulating strip is provided in the screw groove adjacent to the glass holder, in which a groove is provided on the side facing away from the profile, in which a continuous seal extending over the glass holder and the insulating strip is fixed between the adjacent surface elements. The arrangement of a seal eliminates the need for Fill the gap between the surface elements with silicone, since the seal is supported at least on the insulating strip and sufficient clamping forces can be provided to seal the space between the sealing lips or elastic sealing strips, even if there is a considerable load from the weather. By supporting the seal on the insulating strip, sagging that could lead to leaks is reliably avoided.

The seal preferably has sealing lips on opposite sides, each of which resiliently abuts an end edge of the insulating glass pane. The sealing lips can ensure a secure seal even in extreme weather conditions. The sealing lips can be bent in the direction facing away from the profile, so that when the seal is pulled in, the sealing lips are automatically aligned in the pretensioned position.

According to a further embodiment of the invention, a continuous groove for fixing a seal is provided on the upper side of the glass holder facing away from the profile. As a result, the seal can be fixed throughout in the groove of the insulating strip and the groove of the glass holder, so that there is essentially uninterrupted support of the seal. The groove in the glass holder is preferably aligned with the groove of the insulating strip.

For easy assembly of the seal, the groove on the glass holder and the insulating strip is undercut, so that the seal can be pulled in without tools. If the sealing foot is arranged with play towards the bottom of the respective groove, the sealing foot can also be pushed slightly over the later mounting position when the seal is pulled in, so that the pressing of the seal is not accidentally ended, for example because the sealing foot is too early on the floor of the groove. The groove base and the sealing foot are preferably formed in a V-shape, as a result of which simple assembly and centering is achieved. According to a further embodiment, the seal has, on opposite sides, first sealing lips and second sealing lips, each of which abuts an end edge of an insulating glass pane. The first sealing lips arranged on the side facing away from the profile are preferably longer than the second sealing lips, so that the second sealing lips only represent a type of security, for example if the first sealing lips are damaged. The longer sealing lips also form the appearance of a space sealed with silicone, which has the advantage that both types of sealing can be used side by side.

Mounting surface elements for facades is always difficult when there is limited space, as is the case, for example, with structural glazing constructions in which surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, are mounted directly adjacent to one another and the fasteners are not protrude above the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes. There is limited space in the gap between the surface elements, and the fixing of the glass holders to the profiles of a supporting structure is relatively tedious. It is not uncommon for the glass holder or screw to get lost in the process, which is particularly annoying with larger construction cavities. The surface elements can also be damaged if pliers are gripped between the surface elements to turn the glass holder or if the cordless screwdriver is screwed off, slips off the screw and strikes the insulating glass pane or other components.

It is therefore also an object of the present invention to provide a tool for the assembly of surface elements, in particular for a facade and / or skylight construction according to one of the preceding claims, which ensures simple assembly, especially in tight spaces.

This object is achieved with a tool with the features of claim 44. Thereafter, the tool comprises an opening device for holding an object, a handle for holding and guiding the tool, and a leadthrough provided in the tool for a fastening bolt, by means of which the held object can be fixed. As a result, the tool fulfills several

Functions, namely the clamping device can hold the object to be fastened and also insert it into narrow spaces. The object can then be aligned via the handle, the fixing being carried out in a simple manner in such a way that a fastening bolt is positioned in the tool via a bushing and then fixed. The bushing prevents the fastening bolt and a tool for fastening it from having to be kept free, because the bushing likewise offers guidance and protection against damage to the surrounding components.

According to a preferred embodiment of the invention, the handle forms a

Contact surface and the clamping device protrudes from this contact surface. As a result, the object to be assembled can also be inserted into confined spaces. The clamping device is preferably arranged at the end on a tubular section, so that the fastening bolt and a tool for fastening it can be carried out within the tubular section. The bushing can extend through the handle and the clamping device, so that the tool for the fastening bolt can be inserted into the bushing at a distance from the contact surface of the handle.

The passage in the handle for guiding a tool for the fastening bolt preferably has a frusto-conical tapered section, so that both the fastening bolt and the tool can be inserted into a wider opening and then automatically centered when inserted. The clamping device preferably comprises two projections which have wedge-shaped side surfaces and can be inserted into a groove or recess in an object to be assembled. This clamping of the object on the wedge-shaped side surfaces enables the object to be fixed particularly quickly and easily, the side surfaces preferably having a corresponding roughness and being made, for example, of a harder plastic.

So that the handle of the tool can be attached to a fastening plane, which is formed, for example, by adjacent surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes, at the desired height, projecting flanges are preferably formed on the side of the handle. These contact flanges ensure that the object to be assembled is only inserted into the gap by the desired amount. If the handle is designed in the form of a strip, the orientation of the object to be assembled can also be quickly detected from the outside, for example if the object to be assembled still has to be rotated for fixing, this can be visually understood by the handle. For this purpose, the handle can also be made of transparent material so that the object to be assembled can still be seen at least in part.

According to an advantageous assembly method, the object to be assembled is first fixed to a locking device of the tool, the object held on the opening device and aligned in the mounting position, in order to then attach a fastening bolt to a bushing in the

Insert the tool and then fix the object with the fastening bolt and remove the tool again. These assembly steps can be carried out quickly and easily, in particular for fastening glass holders in structural glazing constructions, while ensuring that the object to be assembled and the fastening bolt cannot be accidentally lost or that other components are damaged. The sequence of the individual process steps can be varied to the extent that the fastening bolt can be positioned beforehand between the object and the tool, or only then threaded through the tool after the object to be fastened has been positioned.

According to a preferred embodiment, the object to be assembled is a glass holder which is placed on a screw groove of a profile and then rotated so that a holding arm on the glass holder engages in a groove of an insulating glass pane. This increases safety because the fitter no longer has to intervene with his fingers between two surface elements. Furthermore, the glass holder can then be fixed by means of a screw inserted through the tool.

The invention is explained below using an exemplary embodiment with reference to the accompanying drawings. Show it:

In Figure 1, a facade construction 1 is shown, in which on a profile 2 as

Surface elements insulating glass elements 3 are set. This facade construction 1 can be used both in the area of an outer wall and in roof glazing. The insulating glass elements 3 rest on seals 4 in the edge region, which are arranged in grooves 5 of the profiles 2.

Between the grooves 5, a screw groove 6 is provided, which is formed from two opposing webs on which corrugations are provided on the inside. The screw groove 6 is used not only to hold fasteners but also to hold an insulating strip 7 which has a groove 70 directed towards the outside. The screw groove 6 also serves to fix a glass holder 9 according to the invention and can also be used to provide cover shells, not shown here, which can hold the insulating glass elements 3 on the outside.

The insulating glass elements 3 have a circumferential groove 8 on the outside

Edge area, which is formed on a spacer profile that between two glass panes is positioned on the edge. The spacer profile with the groove 8 is held between the glass panes via filler material.

Laterally projecting holding arms 13 are formed on the glass holder 9, in which case two holding arms 13 are provided per glass holder 9. It is also possible to design only one holding arm 13. The width 11 of the glass holder 9 or the holding arms 13 is smaller than the distance 12 between two insulating glass elements 3. A screw channel 22 is provided in the glass holder 9 for the implementation of a screw 10 so that the glass holder 9 is fixed in the screw groove 6 of the profile 2 can be.

For the assembly, the glass holder 9 is first fitted with a screw 26 in the position marked A, a screw head 26 being insertable into a receptacle in the glass holder 9. The glass holder 9 can thus be gripped on a groove 16 by a tool and inserted into the gap between two insulating glass elements 3 (position B).

As soon as a contact surface 14 of the glass holder 9 rests on the end edges of the screw groove 6, the glass holder 9 is rotated by approximately 90 ° so that the holding arms 13 each engage in a groove 8 of an insulating glass element 3. Then the

Screw 10 is completely screwed into the screw groove 6 in order to fix the glass holder 9 and thus the insulating glass elements 3 to the profile 2.

In Figure 2, the glass holder 9 is shown in the assembled position. The glass holder 9 lies with a contact surface 14 on the front edge of the screw groove 6. The

Holding arms 13 engage in the groove 8 of the insulating glass elements 3 so that they are pressed against the seals 4 with a certain contact pressure in order to be held on the profile 2.

A seal 15 is provided on the outside, with its foot in a groove

16 of the glass holder 9 engages. The seal 16 has sealing lips 27, which with a certain pre-tension against the end faces of the insulating glass elements 3 be pressed and ensure adequate sealing. The seal 15 is held with the sealing foot adjacent to the glass holder 9 in the groove 70 in the insulating strip 7, so that the seal 15 is held securely throughout and ensures an adequate seal. It is not necessary to fill the back of the seal with silicone.

The glass holder 9 according to the invention is shown in section in FIG. The glass holder 9 has a contact surface 14 in which two grooves 17 are recessed. The grooves 17 have approximately a width corresponding to the two end edges of the screw groove 6, so that the screw groove 6 can be inserted into the grooves 17 essentially in a form-fitting manner. The grooves 17 serve as an assembly aid, so that when the glass holder 9 is rotated, the correct alignment of the glass holder 9 can be heard or felt by a slight click. Instead of the guide grooves 17, it is also possible to provide only a central protrusion which engages in the screw groove 6.

The glass holder 9 has two holding arms 13, each comprising a thinner web 18 and a spherical end 19. The spherical end 19 has the advantage that there is a defined contact surface of the holding arm in the groove 8 of the insulating glass elements 3. Furthermore, the insulating glass elements 3 in the assembled

Carry out slight movements, or due to considerable wind loads. Then the insulating glass element 3 can be moved somewhat around the spherical end 19.

The screw-in glass holder 9 has a receiving groove 16 in the center, which with a

V-shaped bottom 20 is provided, which is designed to correspond to the base of the seal 15. The V-shaped groove 16 has lateral undercuts 21 for the form-fitting holding of the seal 15. The glass holder 9 is constructed in such a way that the position of the groove 16 has approximately the same height as the groove 70 of the insulating strip 7. As a result, the seal 15 maintains a continuous one

Supporting surface. Lateral groove walls 24 are also provided on the glass holder 9, which contributes to a secure hold of the seal 15. A screw channel 22 is also provided in the glass holder 9, which has a small strip-shaped projection 23 in the end area on the side facing the profile 2, which clamps the fastening means, for example the screw 10, so that it is mounted during assembly cannot be lost. The

Screw channel 22 also has a receptacle for a head 26 of screw 10 so that it can be concealed beneath groove 16. For this purpose, the screw channel 22 is provided with an enlarged opening in the upper region, the head 26 of the screw 10 being supported on slopes 25 in the screw channel 22. The function groove 16 is due to the recessed arrangement of the

Screw head 26 is not affected.

The screw-in glass holder 9 can be made of metal or another suitable material. In the illustrated embodiment, the glass holder 9 is provided with two holding arms 13. A glass holder 9, which has only one holder arm 13, is sufficient for the peripheral fastening of an insulating glass element 3.

A support structure 101 shown in FIG. 4 comprises a profile 102 on which a plurality of surface elements 103 are fixed. The surface elements 103 are clamped in the edge region to a seal 104, which are drawn into a groove 105 of the profile 102. The profile 102 consisting of metal, for example aluminum or steel, furthermore comprises a screw groove 106, into which an insulating strip 107 is inserted. However, the insulating strip 107 is not continuous, but rather has interruptions at certain intervals so that a glass holder 109 can be attached to the screw groove 106.

The glass holder 109 has one or two lateral projecting holder arms 113, which are each inserted into a groove 8 arranged on the edge on the surface elements 103.

As can be seen in FIG. 5, the glass holder 109 is fastened by means of a screw 124 which is screwed into the screw groove 106 of the profile 102. At the a side 170 facing away from the profile 102 is formed on the insulating strip 107 as well as a groove 116 on the glass holder 109, which are arranged approximately at the same height and accommodate a seal 115. The seal 115 is held throughout in the grooves 170 and 116 and has sealing lips 127 which bear against the end faces of the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 13, and ensure an adequate seal. Due to the continuous support of the seal 115, it is no longer necessary to additionally fill the gap between the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 103, with silicone.

A glass holder 109 is shown in FIGS. 6 and 7. The glass holder 109 has an essentially flat underside 114, on which a strip-shaped extension 117 is provided for centering in the screw groove 106. Lateral slopes 112 are arranged on the strip-shaped projection 117 as a centering aid. As a result, the insulating glass pane 103 together with the glass holders 109 can easily be placed on the profile 102.

The glass holder 109 also has a lateral holding arm 113, which is formed from a thinner web 118 and a spherical head 120. The thickened head 120, which comes into contact with the groove 108 in the insulating glass pane 103, allows the surface elements 103 to be slightly inclined up to a maximum of 10 ° without the holding function of the glass holder 109 being impaired. Slight curves of the supporting structure can also be built with this glass holder 109.

For a particularly large transfer of force, the transition between the holding arm 113 and a side wall of the glass holder 109 is formed at 119. The radius is preferably chosen to be greater than 5 or 10 mm so that loads can be transferred well over the rounded area.

The glass holder has two bores 111 into which screws 124 can be screwed in to fix the glass holder 109 to the profile 102. The Screws 124 can be sunk into the glass holder 109, the bore 111 below the groove 116 being widened by a bevel 123 (countersink) and the head of the screw 124 being received essentially below the groove 116.

The groove 116 of the glass holder 109 is V-shaped in the bottom region and has inclined wall elements 122 which are designed in accordance with the inclination of the sealing foot of the seal 115. A little play is provided between the sealing foot and the bevel 122 so that the seal 115 can be drawn better into the groove 116. On opposite side walls 110 of the groove

116 are also provided projections 121 so that the groove 116 is undercut and the seal 115 can hold permanently.

The glass holder 109 shown is preferably made of metal or another suitable material. In the embodiment shown there is only one

Holding arm 113 provided. It is also possible to also provide a holding arm 113 on the opposite side in order to fasten two surface elements 103 to the glass holder 109.

FIG. 8 shows a support structure 201 in the form of an outer wall or roof glazing, which is designed as a so-called structural glazing construction, which has no visible fastening parts on the outside. The supporting structure 201 comprises a profile 202 and surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 203, which has an outer glass pane 233 with an edge region protruding beyond an inner glass pane 234. Between the glass panes

233 and 234, a spacer 230 is provided, on which a groove 232 is arranged. The groove 232 comprises just-aligned groove walls 231 which are used to fix the insulating glass pane 203.

The surface elements 203 lie with the inner glass pane 234 on a seal 204, which are drawn into a groove 205 of the profile 202. The grooves 205 are connected via a web 225 to the profile 202, which is bent relative to the profile 202 in accordance with the orientation of the insulating glass pane 203.

A screw groove 206 is also provided on the profile 202 for receiving insulating strips and fastening means, the glass holder according to the invention also being provided

207 is fixed to the screw groove 206. For this purpose, one or more screws 20 are provided, which fix the glass holder 207 to the profile 202 by means of a screw head 221.

A sprayable joint seal 209 is provided between a gap 208 between adjacent outer glass panes 233. So that this joint seal 209 cannot come into the glass rebate, a so-called pre-filler 210 is inserted between the glass holder 207 and the joint seal 209.

In the embodiment shown in FIG. 8, the surface elements 203 are arranged at an angle of 90 °. The glass holder 207 each has a holding arm 211 with a curved end section 223, which is inserted into the groove 232 at the end. Relative to a plane of the screw channel, the insulating glass pane 203 is attached at an angle of 45 ° via the glass holder 207, with surface elements 203 being attached on both sides of the screw groove 206.

As shown in FIG. 9, the same glass holder 207 can also be used to fasten surface elements 203 to a profile 202 at a different angle. The curved end section 223 has been shortened in this embodiment, so that only a part of the end section engages in the groove 232 of the insulating glass pane 203. Accordingly, the outer glass pane 233 of the insulating glass pane 203 only protrudes slightly beyond the inner glass pane 234, and the groove 205 is aligned at a different angle via the web 225. The two adjacent surface elements 203 are arranged at an angle of 160 °. It is also possible to arrange the surface elements 302 in any desired to fix their angle adjacent to one another on a profile 202 via the glass holder 207.

As can be seen in FIG. 10, the glass holder 207 comprises a bottom section 212, on which a strip-like protruding centering projection 213 is formed.

The centering projection 213 is inserted into the screw groove 206 and ensures correct positioning of the glass holder 207 on the profile 202, the side walls of the centering projection 213 being able to be slightly inclined in order to ensure a positive or clamping fixation on the screw groove 206.

The glass holder 207 further comprises a hollow chamber 214, which serves to receive the heads 221 of the screws 220, so that the heads 221 do not protrude beyond the glass holder 207. A middle section 222 of the holding arm 211 adjoins an upper side 219 of the hollow chamber 214, which is flat and extends perpendicular to the central plane of the screw groove 206. The curved end section 223 adjoins this middle section 222.

The curved end section 223 is wave-shaped and comprises a plurality of wave troughs 216 or grooves and wave crests 217 which protrude outward in a bulbous manner. The troughs 216 form marking aids which indicate which angle is reached by the curved end section 223 starting from a central plane. In the exemplary embodiment shown, an angle of 45 ° is enclosed over the last wave crest 217, so that this last wave crest 217 is suitable for fixing to a 90 ° corner. However, if adjacent surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 203, are installed at a smaller angle, then the curved end section 223 can be shortened accordingly, a certain tolerance compensation being able to take place due to the bulbous configuration of the wave crests 217 and a linear contact surface of a wave crest 217 in a certain area the wall 231 of the groove 232 of the insulating glass pane 203 is given. By marking the assembly errors are avoided and the glass holder 207 can easily be shortened on site.

In addition to the linear load transfer, the wave-shaped design of the curved end section 223 has the further advantage that the length of the insulating glass pane 203 can be easily compensated for, since the wave-shaped contact surfaces have only low frictional resistances.

As shown in FIG. 11, the glass holder 207 comprises two openings 218 in the upper region into which screws 220 can be inserted. Appropriate

Smaller diameter openings are provided in the bottom portion 212 of the glass holder 207. The glass holder 207 thus has an outer flat contact surface, since the heads 221 of the screws are sunk in the hollow chamber 214 and the prefiller 210 can therefore be placed well against the glass holder 207.

The glass holder 207 shown can preferably be extruded from metal, for example aluminum, and then cut to the desired length. Other materials can also be used for production.

In the exemplary embodiment shown, the K-curvature at the end section 223 is circular. It is also possible to provide a curvature with different radii on the glass holder 27.

A further supporting structure 301 shown in FIG. 12 for a structural glazing

Construction comprises a profile 302 on which surface elements 303 are fixed. On the profile 302, seals 304 are drawn into grooves 305, against which the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 303, rest. To fasten the surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 303, the profile 302 has a screw groove 306 on the glass holder 310 and an insulating strip

307 are fixed. The glass holders 310 have one or two laterally protruding holding arms 311, which are provided to be inserted into a groove 309 of an insulating glass to engage disc 303. The groove 309 is arranged on a spacer 308 between two glass panes of the insulating glass pane 303 and can optionally extend over the entire length or only over a partial area.

For the assembly of the glass holder 310 screws 312 are provided, which are screwed through a screw channel in the glass holder 310 into the screw groove 306 on the profile 302. Furthermore, a groove 313 is provided on each glass holder 310, which in the assembled state serves to fix a seal, which extends along the insulating strip 307 and the glass holder 301. During assembly, however, the groove 313 can also be used for the engagement of a clamping device of a tool.

As can be seen from FIG. 12, the glass holder 310 is initially aligned such that the holding arms 311 run parallel to the screw groove 306 and can be inserted between a gap 314 of two surface elements 303. Then the glass holder 310 is rotated 90 ° so that the holding arms 311 engage in the groove 309. Then the glass holder 310 is fixed by means of the screw 312. The surface elements 303 are held circumferentially on profiles 302 via a plurality of glass holders 310.

A tool is used for the assembly, as is shown schematically in FIG. 13. The tool comprises a handle 320, which has an opening 322 on the side facing away from the profile 302. On the side facing the profile 302, a clamping device 321 is provided which protrudes from the handle 320. For assembly, a screw 312 is first inserted into a bushing in the tool and then the glass holder 310 is pre-fixed to the clamping device 321 by means of clamps. Then the tool is inserted together with the glass holder 310 into the gap 314 between the surface elements 303 and rotated by 90 ° over the handle 320. Here, a contact flange 325 arranged on the handle rests on the surface elements 303. The rotation of the handle 320 is clearly visible due to the strip-shaped design of the handle. Then, through the bushing arranged in the tool, the screw 312 is set screwdriver set. The contact flange 325 is formed on the underside of the handle 320. The clamping device 321 is positioned on a tubular section 326 and thus protrudes from the handle 320 for insertion between two surface elements 303.

As can be seen in FIG. 14, the bushing comprises a first cylindrical section 322 with a larger diameter, a frustoconical section 323 and a second cylindrical section 324 with a smaller diameter. The frustoconical section 323 serves as a guide, so that the fastening bolt 312 and / or a screwdriver is easier in the section

322 can be inserted and then automatically aligned when inserted.

In the exemplary embodiment shown, the bushing comprises a receptacle 330 for a screw head and a cylindrical section 329 with a smaller diameter than the adjacent regions. As a result, a screw 312 can be held in the receptacle 330 between the tool and the glass holder 310 without it being accidentally lost. The tapered cylindrical section 329 prevents the screw 312 from slipping through the tool.

The tool is shown in a side view in FIG. 15, the clamping device 321 in particular being clearly visible. The clamping device 321 has wedge-shaped inclined side surfaces 328 which extend at an acute angle α, preferably between 1 and 10 °. The side surfaces 328 can be roughened so that the glass holder 310 or another object can be clamped on well.

16 and 17, the tool is shown again in perspective. The clamping device 321 is formed from two projections attached to the tubular section 326, which can then engage in a groove 313 of the glass holder 310 or in a recess on an object. The handle 320 is as Hollow profile formed and has receptacles 327 on which spacers or other molding devices can be mounted.

In the exemplary embodiment shown, the tool is made of plastic, which can also be transparent so that the object to be assembled remains visible. It is also possible to use other materials for the tool.

Furthermore, the tool and the assembly method were explained in more detail with reference to the definition of surface elements 303 on a profile 302 for structural glazing constructions. However, the tool can also be used universally

Assembly of other objects can be used.

A support structure 401 shown in FIG. 18 comprises a profile 402 on which a plurality of surface elements, in particular insulating glass panes 403, are fixed. The surface elements 403 become clamped to a seal in the edge region

404 set, which are drawn into a groove 405 of the profile 402. The profile 402 consisting of metal, for example aluminum or steel, furthermore comprises a screw groove 406 into which an insulating strip 407 is inserted. However, the insulating strip 407 is not designed to be continuous, but instead has interruptions at certain intervals so that a glass holder 409 can be attached to the screw groove 406.

The glass holder 409 has one or two lateral projecting holder arms 413, each of which is inserted into a groove 408 on the edge of the surface elements 403. The insulating glass pane 403 comprises an inner glass pane 430 and an outer glass pane 431, between which a spacer 432 is arranged, on which the groove 408 for receiving the holding arms 413 of the glass holder 409 are formed.

As can be seen in FIG. 19, the glass holder 409 is attached via a

Screw 424, which is screwed into the screw groove 406 of the profile 402. On the side facing away from the profile 402 there is a groove 470 on the insulating strip 407 and on the glass holder 409 a groove 416 is formed, which are arranged in approximately the same height and accommodate a seal 415. The seal 415 is held continuously in the grooves 470 and 416 and has outwardly curved sealing lips 427 which bear against the end faces of the outer glass pane 431 of the surface elements 403 and ensure an adequate seal. Due to the resilient contact of the sealing lips 427, tolerances in the width of the gap between adjacent surface elements can also be compensated for. Due to the continuous support of the seal 415, it is no longer necessary to additionally fill the gap between the surface elements 403 with silicone.

The glass holder 409 has bores into which screws 424 can be screwed in for fixing to the profile 402. The screws 424 can be recessed in the glass holder 409, the head of the screw 424 being arranged substantially below the groove 416.

The groove 416 of the glass holder 409 is V-shaped in the bottom region and has inclined wall elements which are designed in accordance with the inclination of the sealing foot of the seal 415. A little play is provided between the sealing foot and the slope so that the seal 415 can be better drawn into the groove 416. On opposite side walls of the groove 416 inward projections are further provided so that the groove 416 is undercut and the seal 415 can hold permanently.

In Figure 20, the seal 415 is shown in cross section. The seal 415 comprises first sealing lips 427 on opposite sides and shorter second sealing lips 419 on the side facing the profile 402, which also rest on the front edge of an insulating glass pane 403.

The seal 415 also has a compressible sealing foot 418, which has laterally projecting projections 417, which ensure a secure hold in an undercut groove 416 or 470. A hollow chamber 421 is provided in the area of the sealing foot 418 so that the sealing foot 418 can be easily moved compress and pull into the grooves 416 and 470. On the side facing outwards, the seal 415 is arched in a visually appealing manner, so that together with the sealing lips 427 an outer W-shaped contour results.
