||A unitized curtain wall is another type of frame-supporting curtain wall consisting of framing components and panel materials. Such framing components and panel materials are assembled into a single curtain wall unit at our production base. The curtain wall units are then transported to construction sites for installation. The panels can be made of various materials, including glass, metal, stone, and artificial materials.
The unitized curtain wall means that the unitized panel is assembled by various components of curtain wall (including sheet, supporting frame, etc.) in factory, and delivered to site for the purpose of integral hanging installation, and fixed on the main structure by embedded connective system.Compared with the traditional structural member type curtain wall, the unitized curtain wall has a lot of outstanding advantages:
■ The integral hanging installation is adopted for unitized panel, to achieve fast installation and short site construction period.
■ The fact that it can be constructed synchronously with the main structure and that vertical cross work is allowed, makes for shortening the construction period of the building.
■ As the unitized panel is of high bunch production and, its assembly being completed in factory, high assembly precision, the quality is easy to be controlled.
■ Inlaying method is used for connection among unitized panels. Meanwhile, it has a powerful absorbing capacity for temperature deformation, displacement between stories, seismic deformation, etc.
■ Inlaying method is used for connection among unitized panels, which ensures a high degree of accuracy for installation and positioning as well as high degree of facade flatness.
■ The structural sealing method is adopted among unitized panels, and the traditional jointing sealing sealant has already been replaced by sealing sealant strip, which ensures not only sealing property but also an effective decrease on pollution level on the surface of curtain wall, nice appearance and neatness, with improvement of decorative effect
