The unitized curtain wall is built in the production warehouse enabling an elevated level of quality control during assembly, therefore reducing installation time and cost.
Usually panels extend from floor to floor and are anchored to the load-bearing structure of the building through different fasteners. The frame of the panel is made of extruded aluminium profiles.
The blind or glazed element is fixed onto the frame by means of mechanical fasteners or glue with structural silicon.
Profiles have male-female joints and are provided with gaskets to ensure that the façade is weather-tight.
They are designed in such a way that the façade can preserve all of its functions also following the inevitable movements of the supporting structure of the building and the thermal expansion of the elements.
