Glazing solutions offered:
Curtain wall glazing is a lightweight exterior cladding which is hung from floor to floor form an independent envelope around the main building structure and is generally not resting on the concrete structure but only connected to it. Constructing the whole glass wall as a single unit with special sealing elements, materials and techniques make curtain wall glazing an extremely specialized job. At 4C curtain walls are made in a way that they have maximum resistance towards air and water infiltration.
Structural glazing is a system of connecting glass to an aluminium window frame using a high-strength silicone sealant which retain the glass in the frame by mere adhesion without any bolts or clips. As the result, structural glazing with sealants crafts flawlessly uniform large glazed surfaces, not interrupted by frames or any other fitting system projecting out of the frame. Instead of being fitted in a frame, the glass is fixed to a support, which in turn is attached to a structural element of the building.
This structural glazing system is basically designed to minimize the effect of solar radiation, accommodate structural deflections, control wind-driven rain and air leakage, and provides maintenance-free long-term performance.
The spider glazing system, which is also referred as bolted glazing system, is the alternative to structural glazing, which holds the glass by means of visible metal parts that covers a small part of the glass surface. Spider Glazing systems are often used on entrances of the large buildings, so that one can have unobstructed view into the building.
Fitting a matrix of glass panes together, hung from the building structure to break the restricted interior view of the building, makes suspended Glazing, which is also referred as Frameless Glazing. Frameless glazing system combines specially processed and toughened glass panes with a bolt fixing system designed to support the weight of the glass.
