Technical Details Of Glass Curtain Wall-Hidden Frame Glass Curtain Wall Part B
Last time we shared some technical details for hidden frame glass curtain wall about the aluminum beam and glass type, today we will talk about the design and drawings details for hidden frame glass curtain wall.
Firstly, how to distinguish the hidden frame glass curtain wall from the technical drawings?
See the above picture, this is the hidden frame glass curtain wall system, the glass panel is on the outermost layer for the whole system, and from the outside, you can NOT see the aluminum beam behind the glass, so we call it hidden frame.
Let's compare the exposed frame glass curtain wall, and see which layer the glass panel located in.
The aluminum cover is in the outermost layer, and from the outside, we can see the aluminum cover, so this is why we call it exposed frame glass curtain wall.
Comparing these two pictures, we can find it easily that, to distinguish the hidden frame or exposed frame glass curtain wall, we just check if the glass panel located in the outermost layer and from outside if we can see the aluminum frame!
Now,we are going to check the designing drawing for the hidden frame glass curtain wall, and see what it looks from the design details.
From the above is the plan view designing picture, all details are shown like the size of aluminum mullion(structure beam), the bolt and nut, shim, angle bracket, aluminum transom, glass type, sealant and so on...
The followed one is the elevation view designing picture, also explain all the technical details for hidden frame glass curtain wall.
Corner joints is an important factor for glass curtain wall system, because it will affect the air tightness and energy efficiency of the whole system, here we provide our solution for the conner connection as above picture, and our system can be better in water and sound proof, heat insulation and air tightness.
Glass curtain wall is a complete system, each small section will affect the performance for the whole system, so we should take care for each steps, like design, construction, embedded parts, measurement, shop drawing, production, package, shipping and installation, all these are very important for the building.
Fortunately, we are the professional manufacturer of aluminum and glass systme for more than 15 years, and we've done more than 100 oversea projects with our core advantages "One Stop Project Solution", it means we can do all steps for the project. More details, please click here
