Do You Know The Types Of Curtain Wall

Curtain wall,a lightweight wall with decorative effects commonly used in modern large and high-rise buildings. A building envelope structure or decorative structure consisting of a panel and a supporting structural system that has a certain displacement capacity relative to the main structure or a certain deformation capability, and does not bear the function of the main structure.

In many cities, we can see that the buildings use a glass curtain wall. This way has become a symbol of the times, so it shows the grand high-end momentum. I heard that the glass curtain wall is divided into many different types. So how much do you know about these types of glass curtain walls? This article will elaborate on some of the types of glass curtain walls.

Exposed frame curtain wall

The exposed frame curtain wall is a glass curtain wall in which the metal frame member is exposed on the outer surface. It is framed by a special section of aluminum alloy profile, and the glass panel is fully embedded in the groove of the profile. Its characteristic is that the aluminum alloy profile itself has the dual function of the skeleton structure and the fixed glass.

Hidden framing curtain wall

The metal frame of the hidden frame glass curtain wall is concealed on the back of the glass, and the metal frame is not visible outside. The hidden frame glass curtain wall can be divided into two types: full hidden frame glass curtain wall and semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall. The semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall can be horizontal and vertical, or vertical and horizontal. The structural characteristics of the hidden frame glass curtain wall are: the glass is on the outside of the aluminum frame, and the glass is sealed with the aluminum frame by a silicone structural sealant. The load on the curtain wall is mainly absorbed by the sealant.

Full glass curtain wall

The all-glass curtain wall is a glass curtain wall made up of glass ribs and glass panels. All glass curtain wall glass panels are generally large in size and should be mounted using mechanical suction cups. The all-glass façade allows for the injection of silicone structural sealants on site. The all-glass panel must not be in direct contact with other rigid materials. The gap between the board surface and the finishing surface or structural surface shall not be less than 8mm and shall be sealed with a sealant.

Point support curtain wall

The point supporting curtain wall is a glass curtain wall composed of a glass panel, a point supporting device and a supporting structure. The support structure has glass rib support, single steel or steel pipe support, truss support and tension cable system support structure.

Unit curtain wall

The unitized curtain wall refers to the basic unit of the complete curtain wall structure made up of various wall rights and support frames in the factory, and the building curtain wall directly installed on the main structure. The unit type curtain wall can be mainly divided into: unit type curtain wall and semi-unit type curtain wall, also known as firm unit type curtain wall, and the semi-unit type curtain wall can be further divided into: a combination of a vertical and a split unit, a curtain wall and a unit wall.
