CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS

At Extralum we specialize in building facade systems tailored to each project.

The curtain wall as a system, also called a light facade, can be defined as the self-supporting external envelope made up of linear elements, joined together and anchored to the main structure of the building. Curtain walls are built by repeating prefabricated elements, including protection, opening, and accessibility.

The components of a curtain wall are as follows:

Structural elements

Filler elements; practicable or fixed

Light facades, or curtain walls, are generally designed in the form of a grid, so their structural elements can be divided into vertical and horizontal, commonly called studs and crossbars, respectively.

Design factors and functionality in curtain walls

Light facades must have certain elements so that they can function properly and offer excellent benefits to the building:

Resistance to horizontal forces to which it will be subjected

Resistance to deformations of the main structure.

Ability to evacuate atmospheric water.

Thermal isolation.

Solar protection.

Acoustic isolation.

The Extralum systems for lightweight facades are made of aluminum, differing mainly in three groups according to their construction configuration:

Exoglass Stick

Exoglass Unitizado

Exoglass Spider

STICK CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM

These curtain wall systems are the most traditional and are composed of the juxtaposition of profiles, consisting of vertical structural elements called mullions and horizontal structural elements called transoms, which are connected to each other and anchored to the main structure of the buildings through anchors. It is characterized by first making the structure and finally placing the glass.

The Integrated System is also called “Stick” because in its manufacture long pieces of aluminum are inserted, vertical between the floors, and horizontal between the vertical members to support and transfer the load of the glass to the structure.

Most of the construction and glass assembly for an Integrated System is done on-site. One of its benefits is the ease of use, very economical for facades that have lower volumes required under complicated conditions

some variants differ from each other by shape and size, get to know our Stick Curtain Wall Systems:

Characteristics of the Unitized Curtain Wall System:

Unitized modular curtain wall systems are made up of large glass units that are assembled directly at the factory. Once on site, the units are connected to anchors already attached to the building. For the efficient use of this system, wind loads, humidity protection and anti-seismic efficiency must be taken into account

One of the benefits of using a Unitized System is:

  • Allows a more agile installation than the “stick” system.
  • Installation costs can be reduced as it allows cost savings on mounting aids.
  • Less risk of glass breakage.

Among the glasses that can be used are:

It supports monolithic, laminated, and hermetic double-glazed glass configurations.
