Glass curtain wall is the wall structure of modern buildings constructed with safety glass. most of the buildings using glass curtain walls are high-rise buildings, but in general, the buildings with glass curtain walls will look more beautiful and have a more modern atmosphere. But little is known about the structure of the glass curtain wall is very complex, there are many ways to construct the glass curtain wall.
Fully hidden frame glass curtain wall
As the name implies, the glass curtain wall with full hidden frame, that is, the frame around it, is hidden. Generally, the glass frame of this kind of glass curtain wall is framed on the glass supporting frame made of aluminum alloy. At the same time, the four sides are also fixed in different ways. The upper frame is in contact with the crossbeam of the aluminum alloy frame, while the other three sides are supported in another way, that is, the crossbeam or vertical bar supporting the glass frame. And give strong support to each other.
Semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall
This kind of construction mode is generally divided into two kinds, one is horizontal and implicit vertical instability, the other is the opposite, that is, horizontal instability and vertical concealment, which is different from the full hidden frame, the semi-hidden frame chooses the semi-hidden way to deal with the construction of the glass curtain wall. The specific construction method is to select a pair of corresponding glass edges and glue for adhesion treatment, while the other pair of corresponding glass edges are connected and supported by aluminum alloy frames or other metal frames. When the semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall is constructed, it must have the above two operations, otherwise it is very dangerous.
Open-frame glass curtain wall
Different from the previous two construction methods, the open-frame glass curtain wall is constructed with the support and treatment of aluminum alloy frames on all four sides of the glass. from the appearance, this kind of glass curtain wall can show a very obvious frame pattern. the safety factor of the open-frame glass curtain wall is also higher than that of the former two.
Point-supported glass curtain wall
The point-supported glass curtain wall is composed of decorative glass and supporting structure of connecting components. According to the effect of facade decoration, it can be divided into flat-head point-supported glass curtain wall and convex-head point-supported glass curtain wall. According to the supporting structure, it can be divided into glass rib point-supported glass curtain wall, steel structure point-supported glass curtain wall, steel tension bar point-supported glass curtain wall and steel cable point-supported glass curtain wall.
All-glass curtain wall
All-glass curtain wall refers to the glass curtain wall composed of glass ribs and glass panels. The all-glass curtain wall was born with the improvement of glass production technology and the diversification of products. It provides conditions for architects to create a strange, transparent and crystal-clear building. The all-glass curtain wall has developed into a multi-variety curtain wall family, which includes glass rib glue-bonded all-glass curtain wall and glass rib point-connected all-glass curtain wall.
