The article concerns the shaping of cable-stayed structures used in glazed facades with large surfaces. Due to the variety of solutions, systematics were made and cable systems were characterized with a division into their one- and two-way work. Attention was paid to the role of point connectors used to connect glass with cables and material solutions of the glazing itself. The article presents and analyzes examples of implementation using the cable-stayed structures in facades.
