Forest based composites for façades and interior partitions to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration

Curtain Wall System

 

Curtain wall façades incorporate aluminium profiles that support large glass panels. The advantage of using curtain wall façades lie in their transparency and modular construction. However, they are also disadvantaged by their high aluminium heat transfer and demand for thermal break; a poor choice of glass can incur very problematic thermal behaviour.
