Patch Fittings

Are a frameless glass concept, which evolved from the end user demand designs required for modern-day glass interior offices and exterior shop front design options used when requiring fit out, commercial & private residential projects.

 

Patch fittings are used in collaboration with glass panels with the most common of these being 10 mm & 12 mm toughened glass with some of the larger market fittings accepting 15 mm glass thickness's with the for-mentioned architectural hardware. Patch fitting concepts have various functions like glass frameless doors in the form of single leaf width “one glass door” or double leaf width “two glass doors side by side” and very commonly are used opposite frameless fixed panels and frameless glass screens known as “Glass Partitions” which is one of QIC's top  fields of expertise, in addition! a popular request is added light demand this can be incorporated with glass over panels and “L” shape patches to achieve this detail. Other glass door details like & top and bottom hydraulic self-closing patch devices have become very common place in recent years due to the lack of floor drilling that is required when fitting this type of patch oppose to a hydraulic floor spring, although a hydraulic floor spring should not be discounted because they can service more robust fitting for heavy traffic and heavy door weights under regular use-age.

 

Patch fitting assistance is often a silicon sealant fix in-between the two toughened glass panels to act as a cushion to protect the adjacent panels from damage or alternatively a Clear or Black PETG glass joint strip can be used to create a similar finish but with the added benefit of a wall of glass look when looking down the corridor, these have become very popular as this is a much cleaner working environment for fitting teams oppose to the skilled but messier silicone sealed option.

Glass cut outs & holes are required to fix the glass patch fittings to the glass, patch and often act as a additional security control measure on glass door leaf “patch locks & strikes or a lockable lever latch” for single leaf or double leaf glass door options.

 

Patch fitting are generally made of forged steel with choices of 304 interiors “most common” or 316 exterior stainless-steel cover plates. The most common finish is a brushed steel effect SSS, although polished and painted covers like black are entering the market to match partition powder coat finishes & designs.
