Aluminium Glass Curtain Wall
Glass curtain wall is a kind of new-style wall of contemporary, and the biggest characteristic it endows a building is that it unifies the elements such as building aesthetics, building function, building energy conservation, building structure and so on. The building presents different tonalities from different angles. With the change of sunshine, moonlight and lights, it shows the dynamic beauty. With the 6mm thick reflective insulating glass, the wall’s weight is about 50kg/㎡, which enables it has the advantages of being light and beautiful, not easy to be polluted, energy-saving and so on. Added trace metal elements into the composition of float glass, and tempered into the color transparent plate glass, it can absorb infrared ray, reduce the solar radiation into the room, and reduce the indoor temperature. It can reflect the light like a mirror, and pass through the light like glass. The inside side of the outer glass of the curtain wall is coated with colored metal coating film. The whole outer wall looks like a mirror in appearance, and the interior is protected from strong light with soft vision under the reflection of the light.
■ Glass Curtain Wall with Clear Frame: It is the glass curtain wall with metal frame components exposed on the outer surface. It takes the aluminum profile with the special section as the frame, and the glass panel is all embedded in the groove of the profile. Its characteristic lies in the aluminum profile itself with the skeleton structure and the fixed glass’s double function.
■ Glass Curtain Wall with Hidden Frame: Metal frame is hidden in the back of the glass and invisible from the outside. Glass curtain wall with hidden frame can be divided into two types: all hidden frame glass curtain wall and half hidden frame glass curtain wall. Half hidden frame glass curtain wall can be horizontal visible and vertical implicit, or be vertical visible and horizontal implicit. The structure features of the hidden frame glass curtain wall are that the glass is on the outside of the aluminum frame, and the glass is attached to the aluminum with a silicone structural sealant. The load of curtain wall is mainly borne by sealant.
■ Point-type Glass Curtain Wall: The glass is fixed reliably through the pre-drilling of the glass with stainless steel claw parts, and the external surface is not shielded. The visual field reaches the maximum and the transparency of the glass is played to the maximum with white glass, super white glass and high-permeable glass.
Note: point glass curtain wall has no open window sashes.
■ Light Weight: Under the comparison of the same area, the quality of the glass curtain wall is about 1/10 ~ 1/12 of that of the stuccoed brick wall, 1/15 of that of the marble and granite veneer wet construction wall, and 1/5 ~ 1/7 of that of the concrete hanging board. For a general building, the mass of the inside and outside walls is about 1/4 ~ 1/5 of the total weight of the building. The use of curtain walls can greatly reduce the weight of the building, thereby reducing the cost of foundation works.
■ Flexible Design: With good artistic effect, architects can design various shapes according to their own needs, which can present different colors, coordinate with the surrounding environment, and cooperate with lighting to integrate buildings and nature, so as to reduce the pressure of high-rise buildings.
■ Strong Earthquake Resistance: Adopting the flexible design, with good performance in wind resistance and earthquake resistance, is the best choice for tall buildings.
■ Modernization: Designs that are compatible with intelligent technologies, such as combing with photovoltaic solar panels.
