Application of Glass Curtain Wall| JINGWAN

In modern architecture, when the area of the glass wall exceeds 50% of the projected area of the exterior wall, it is called a glass curtain wall building. If it is lower than this value, it is generally regarded as part of the wall using the practice of glass wall, or large glass window.

Technical characteristics of glass curtain wall

Glass curtain wall has been widely used at home and abroad, and is regarded as a successful and effective technology. This situation should be attributed to the development of glass industry, which provides a material basis for the application of glass curtain wall. In addition, a variety of lightweight, high-strength, hollow, thin-walled glass curtain wall frame materials, a variety of high-performance joint-filling materials, as well as professional curtain wall installation and construction team, all provide the necessary technical conditions for the development of glass curtain wall.

Because the glass curtain wall has the characteristics of beautiful appearance, good durability and easy assembly and maintenance, therefore, it is widely used in office buildings with high decoration standards, tourist hotels, star hotels, large commercial buildings, nightclubs, gallery, museums, exhibition centers and other buildings. However, it should also be pointed out that the cost of glass curtain wall accounts for about 30%-35% of the total civil construction cost, or even as high as 50%, so it must be selected carefully.

The reason why the glass curtain wall can be applied and promoted in various fields of architecture in a very short time is that it has unique functions and characteristics incomparable to other structures and structures.

The main results are as follows:

(1) with the development of glass technology, the components of glass curtain wall become more and more sophisticated, and the structure becomes more and more exquisite, which makes curtain wall building more and more "industrial art".

(2) the main function of the building curtain wall is to optimize the building shape, so the artistic effect produced by the curtain wall material is incomparable with other materials.

(3) the glass curtain wall realizes the ingenious combination of glass and metal materials, both of which complement each other in structure, and have good structural integrity, light weight and high strength relative to its wall.

(4) the use of glass curtain wall can effectively reduce the construction cost, save energy and protect the environment.
