Specialized aluminum facades, just as traditional light curtain walls, serve as building facades in the form of large, glazed surfaces. The parameters of modern curtain walls are analyzed, above all, in terms of thermal insulation, air permeability, impact resistance, watertightness and wind load resistance. The special requirements posed towards modern buildings more and more often concern anti-burglary protection, the comfort of acoustic insulation, protection against ballistic projectiles, or compliance with current standards in the field of fire safety.
analogously to other light curtain wall systems, have a skeleton structure in a system of aluminum posts and transoms, in which fillings of the appropriate structure and class of glass or non-translucent panels are mounted. Depending on the parameters of the structure, reinforcing sections or insulating elements with special inserts are fastened into the chambers formed by aluminum posts and transoms. The wide range of systemic solutions makes it possible to affix various moving parts into facades and to freely design facades in geometric, aesthetic and functional terms. Specialized aluminum facades are based on profiles and their joints, intended for high loads and requirements. The structural details are technologically advanced and are the subject of well-thought-out patents, which is why every detail is important in the fabrication and assembly of specialized aluminum facades.
The range of specialized aluminum facades includes light curtain walls with enhanced burglary resistance, bulletproof facades, fire safety facades and others, made according to custom arrangements.
Aluminum facades - a broad range of systemic solutions based on aluminum profiles with diverse functions, cross-sections, exterior appearances and technical properties. Our rich offer of facade systems allows for the implementation of various aluminum curtain wall structures. Even the boldest, most atypical and avant-garde architectural designs can be implemented on the basis of commonly applied facade systems. Glass and aluminum are the materials that define modern architecture, affording broad capabilities of shaping the style of buildings – hence the great expectations of designers and investors, which are mostly satisfied by our offer of versatile and verified post-and-beam aluminum facade systems. Aluminum post-and-beam facade systems are characterized by a simple and logical method of fabrication and assembly, a modern and elegant design and excellent functional properties, as well as by durability.
are based on precisely designed self-bearing systems in post-and-beam technology and consist of vertical profiles in the form of posts and horizontal profiles in the form of beams, joined into a lattice. Modern aluminum facade systems are characterized by harmonized profiles, perfectly designed joints between posts and beams, as well as by angular joints allowing for construction of curtain walls with irregular shapes. This is precisely why facade systems provide possibilities of application that are theoretically unlimited, even in the most complicated projects. A very important feature of aluminum facade structures is the possibility of applying large-size glazings, which illuminate buildings with the natural light permeating through the glass and additionally create the optical effect of enlarging rooms and melding them with the outdoor space seen from inside the building. Aluminum facades that have typically been applied in public, office and commercial buildings, as well as hotels, over the last several decades have gained the appreciation of individual investors and are currently being applied in residential construction. Facades made using aluminum profiles are installed to enclose stairwells in multi-family residential buildings, passenger elevator shafts and ground-floor storefronts.
Semi-structural aluminum facades combine excellent visual properties with outstanding functional parameters. A decade or so ago, semi-structural facade systems were an innovation opening up further possibilities of designing facades for modern buildings, and they quickly became a widespread method of creating elegant and prestigious exteriors for buildings. It is precisely thanks to their visual effects, combined with their weather resistance, thermal and acoustic insulation, that semi-structural curtain wall systems have become an important component in the designing and construction of the boldest and most modern buildings over the last decade.
are intended for construction of light, modern, aluminum curtain walls, the exterior side of which is a flat, flush surface, without visible aluminum profiles. In contrast to traditional facade systems, the role of aluminum profiles is limited to the load-bearing structure; from the exterior, the dominant components are glass panes, while aluminum sections in the form of posts and beams are visible solely from the building’s interior. The optical impression of a uniform pane of glass throughout the entire exterior surface of an aluminum curtain wall is achieved by replacing the traditional aluminum fastening bar with steel channel sections glued in at points into the inter-glass space of glazings. The gap between glass panes is filled with a foam gasket and a layer of UV-resistant silicone. Facade systems conceived of in this way make it possible to display glass panes in the foreground, endowing aluminum curtain walls with the visual effects intended by the designers.
Semi-structural facades are applied in prestigious projects involving office and commercial buildings as well as hotels.
