Curtain wall systems

A curtain wall is a particular type of building envelope ensuring high performances, with the advantage of a dry and prefabricated construction system. Its aluminium grid confers lightness and allows the transfer of loads operating on the building to the primary structure elements.

The origin of the name “curtain wall” results from the geometric continuity effect that this technology confers to the outer surface of the building.

Unitised Curtain Wall System

In the unitised system, the façade is entirely characterised by preassembled panels having a grid in extruded aluminium profiles on which the cladding panels or glass units are placed. The units are entirely assembled in the factory and then delivered to site for distribution to the floor slabs and subsequent installation. This ensures exceptional high quality and can be used to achieve complex products. On site, all the operations are carried out from inside the building. Fixing brackets on the main unit can be adjusted in all directions, thus ensuring the façade is installed with the utmost precision. The unitised system enables fast installation, thus making it particularly suitable for tower blocks, where typically an entire floor can be installed in just one week. Weather tightness is ensured by watertight gaskets that are placed in vertical and horizontal joints.

Capped Unitised System

The glazed elements or the panels are assembled in the factory and fixed into the grid by means of an aluminium retaining bead profile. Glazed elements or panels can be easily replaced, and the façade grid is also visible from the outside, thus making it an external architectural feature.

Structural Bonding Unitised System

The glazed elements or the panels are assembled in the factory and fixed into the grid by means of structural silicone bonding. Special two-component silicone rubbers are used for bonding; they must be applied in a controlled environment within the factory.

A thorough quality control procedure is required to check the bonding surfaces and to ensure the entire process by testing. The total glass appearance confers a refined and elegant aesthetics and, in this case, the glazed element is structurally assembled within the façade.

Bolted Glass Façades

They often have no grid or have laminated glass fins or tension cables. The elements, usually glazed with or without grid, are fixed to a reticulated system of tensioned cables and stainless steel or aluminium profiles fixed to the main structure of the building. Special bolt fixing enables the glazed element to move in order to adjust to thermal expansion or contraction and to the building movements without stress or cracks in the glass panes.

This technology maximizes the façade transparency enabling real glass walls.

Double skin façades

They consist of two skins, one inside and one outside, the cavity of which is used to improve the comfort and energy performance of the building. A system of openings and vents allows the air exchange from the inside and the outside of the building to flow within the cavity, thus obtaining a dynamic façade that adjusts its performance based on weather conditions. Shading is ensured by venetian blinds placed within the cavity. The opening vents also facilitate cleaning inside the cavity.

Special façades

They are extremely complex and customised according to the specific architectural needs of the project.

Featuring elements

All types of façade can be integrated with feature elements such as brise-soleil, rainscreen panels, vertical or horizontal fins and fritting to the glass. Apart from their decorative function, these elements improve the façade performance.

Stick Curtain Walling systems
The façade grid is directly assembled on site by installing vertical elements (mullions) with horizontal elements (transoms), onto the building structure. All elements are manufactured from extruded standard or bespoke aluminium profiles, cut, and fabricated in the factory. Weather tightness is ensured by the gasket placed between the grid and cladding panel or glass unit, which can be fixed or opening and is inserted after finishing the grid.
We have the following varieties of Stick Systems

Capped Stick System

The glazed elements and/or the panels are fixed to the grid by means of a continuous pressure plate profile that can be hidden by a snap-on cosmetic colour finished cover.

This system allows an easy replacement of glazed elements or panels and the customisation of cosmetic covers. In this way, the façade grid is also visible from the outside, thus making it an external architectural feature.

Toggle Stick System
The glazed elements or the panels are fixed to the grid by means of specific accessories called “toggles”. The two panes can be jointed with a gasket or by creating a silicone wet seal. In this way, a total glass aesthetic appearance is thus ensured to the façade and glazed elements and panels may be easily replaced

Stick system with structural bonding panel panels

This system consists of hybrid façades built by combining a stick curtain walling system and a unitised system.

The cladding panels are preassembled into frames, which are then fixed into the grid on site by means of hooking devices that ensure their sealing over time and their easy replacement, if needed.
