Our curtain walls are designed to resist air and water infiltration, wind forces acting on the building, seismic forces and its own deal load forces. Curtain walls are designed with an extruded aluminum frame infilled with glass which provides an architecturally pleasing building, as well as benefits such as daylighting and environmental control. Sun breakers are often designed to keep out high summer sun, which causes greater heat gain whilst allowing on the low sun that gives out little heat gain some glare which can be dealt with by using a secondary internal blind. We can offer appropriate solutions taking into account sun angles that vary depending on specialized suppliers. Represents a wide range of products that are custom designed to suit any particular building application. All of our products are engineered with expertise focused on quality, performance, and timely completion.
“Stick” type curtain wall systems are fabricated from aluminum framing members and erected on the building piece-by-piece prior to installing any glass or decorative trims. Single or double story-height vertical framing members are installed first by attaching to floor slabs or other lateral structural elements. After which, intermediate horizontal framing members are installed between the verticals and the process repeats itself as the installation progresses either horizontally around building or vertically up at some points during or after the framing member installation is complete, glass and other infill materials are installed including any decorative trims that may be.
“Structural glass wall” get their name because they are typically frameless in that support is provided by unique ways of retaining high span glazing applications without the introduction of conventional aluminum members or structural floor slabs to anchor back to. There are many different types of structural glass wall systems are available with GT Eurogroove.
“Unitized” curtain wall systems are those which can be pre-assembled and glazed off-site and progressively installed on a building thus allowing for most of the labor being performed in a controlled environment. Unitized systems are most suitable for large products, i.e. high-rise buildings or projects in locations that have higher seismic design requirements. Frame units are typically configured to one module (glass unit) wide by one story in height. These pre-glazed frames are typically placed on bunks consisting of 6 units each and hoisted by a tower crane to their respective floors where they are installed utilizing a small hoist from the floor.
