Structural Glazing / Façades

Simply put, structural glazing is term used to describe glass that is integral to the design of a building: It involves large glass panels, which usually bear some weight in the structure. Structural glazing can be used to create huge glass installations with minimal obstruction.

This is, of course, putting it fairly simply. There are myriad ways structural glazing can be implemented in a design – the most important thing to note is that we’ve come so far with glazing technology, glass can be used as a structural material in almost any situation.

It can bear weight both horizontally and vertically, and it can be bonded using everything from minimal glass beams and supports to heavy-duty steel struts, meaning it can be used on almost any scale, with almost any aesthetic imaginable. Everything from completely frameless sliding glass doors to load-bearing high-strength glass floors can be created.

 

Why use structural glazing?

 

There are many benefits to using structural glass within a building, and perhaps the most compelling is the increase of natural light in our domestic and professional spaces. Throughout our evolution, humans have relied on daylight to regulate and enhance our circadian rhythms, and it has become clear that natural light is a vital part of our overall wellbeing. The time we spend in artificially lit or gloomy environments has a clear impact on our sleep quality, productivity and happiness.

Structural glazing can offer a greater coherence and connection between the natural world and our buildings, while still protecting us from the elements. It allows sunlight to flood a home / building without any attendant annoyances that have previously hampered glass structures, such as overheating during day time due to sunlight. In fact, advances in technology mean that insulation is actually one of the great advantages of using structural glazing.

The inclusion of structural glazing also adds an element of modern luxury to any home – and there is a distinct advantage in the fact that glass can complement older and listed buildings in a way that does not compromise any historic value. Frameless glass, in particular, can be added to or within a building without obscuring original features.

Façades

A façade, or façade or commonly known as curtain wall, is generally one exterior side of a building, usually the front. It is a loan word from the French façade, which means "frontage" or "face". A façade in architecture is often the most important aspect from a design standpoint, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building., usually one with doors or windows. Often the word refers to a structure's front wall with an entrance. Some use façade systems, or constructed segments that attach to a building's external face like a skin.

A key component of the building envelope is the curtain wall. By definition, the curtain wall is a non-load bearing exterior skin that does not contribute stiffness to the building structure. Key requirements of the curtain wall are to provide/maintain air/water integrity in the cladding system, adequate wind, thermal and seismic response in addition to provide light transmittance to the interior space. The actual constitution of a curtain wall is very important. This curtain wall often is a combination of several system types and combined to express the architectural intent and aesthetically define the building profile. The system schemes may be an all-glazed façade (aluminum framed systems, point-supported systems, cable net systems), an opaque façade (such as precast, natural stone and/or metal panels) or a combination of schemes dependent on the building intent.

Doors

The residential door is an expression of personal style and individuality, communicating to visitors their first impression of those living inside. Aluminium doors are a contemporary reflection, they must also function to perfection and offer reliable protection against external environmental effects and unwelcome guests. Modern aluminium doors offer versatility in function and design for expressing your individual style. The special residential door geometry with its convex design sash lends the residential doors that special touch and extraordinary look.

The strength lies in the detail: uncompromising quality is born only of perfect harmony. Security is that good feeling you have when you close the door behind you and you feel simply at home. Multi point locking to get higher security. Irrespectively of the inward or outward opening mode, the universal residential door threshold or the aluminium frame glass door can be installed with peripheral sash frame or extra wide base profile. If barrier free access is wished, the residential door can be fitted with special brush seals, even without a threshold. Glass infill or aluminium panel or even wooden panel instead of glass can be installed

Windows

Height and width vary as per personal preferences, but our aluminium casement windows are customizable which means that they can be installed anywhere to suit various architectural styles. The load-bearing capacity of the windows enables designers to play with sizes and designs. Each window is perfectly tailored to ensure that the structural elements are well-preserved. Corner profiles and connectors increase the strength of the frame giving the windows and the building long-lasting durability and stability.

A handrail is a rail that is designed to be grasped by the hand so as to provide stability or support.
