Façades & Curtain Walls

Today's facades are engineered to deliver not only aesthetically pleasing and energy-saving daylight, but also increased safety, durability and design freedom. The façade of a building is often the most important from a design perspective, as it sets the tone for the rest of the building. When glass is used as the façade, a great advantage is that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building. The façade transfers horizontal wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building.

   

Please find below examples that show how the choice of the safety glass interlayer helped architects to achieve their design goals in façade and curtain walls.
