Almost completely invisible, the Sixth System from Paragon Architectural Products is a glazing system with a hidden supporting structure. No aluminum mullions, transoms, steel trusses, columns, stainless steel cables, rods, or glass fins are visible, contributing to a clean look and maximizing floor space. The system can withstand internal and external pressures and all loading factors, and it meets all international glazing and design codes for safety. The Sixth System is suitable for lobbies, retail showrooms, and museum exhibits and is completely scalable. glassengineer.com
