LF65 / facade System
65mm module Curtain walling and roof light system with a unique 65mm frame
– Used as glass wall outside buildings, office buildings, commercial centers, hotels, ….
– Unitized facade system is a high-tech product in construction, which can be used for buildings with special requirements such as noise protection, sound insulation or absolute insulation.
– The surface of the façade of the Unitized system is uniform, so it ensures the criteria of art.
– Easy construction, fast construction time to meet the requirements of projects that require urgent progress.
– Strictly control product quality at the factory.
– The system is solid, the ability to grip is especially good, adapts to the moving impacts of the building.
– Closed structure, ensuring sound insulation, heat insulation and waterproofing for the project.
– Works even in unfavorable weather.
– Work safety is more guaranteed.
A curtain wall is an outer covering of a building in which the outer walls are non-structural, utilized only to keep the weather out and the occupants in. Since the curtain wall is non-structural, it can be made of lightweight materials, such as glass, thereby potentially reducing construction costs. An additional advantage of glass is that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building. The curtain wall façade does not carry any structural load from the building other than its own dead load weight. The wall transfers lateral wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, absorb sway induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building, withstand wind loads, and support its own weight.
Curtain walls may be designed as “systems” integrating frame, wall panel, and weatherproofing materials. Steel frames have largely given way to aluminum extrusions, typically infilled with glass, which provides an architecturally pleasing look and benefits such as daylighting. However, the effects of light on visual comfort as well as solar heat gain in a building are more difficult to control when using large amounts of glass infill. Other common infills include stone veneer, metal panels, louvres, and operable windows or vents.
Curtain wall systems differ from storefront systems in being designed to span multiple floors, taking into consideration building sway and movement in addition to design requirements such as thermal expansion and contraction; seismic requirements, water diversion; and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling, and interior lighting.
