The curtain wall system is a factory prefabricated system. They were purchased on site and assembled. There are two types depending on how each component is assembled.
1. Adhesive wall curtain wall system
2. Combined curtain wall system
A pole curtain wall system involves its components, which are assembled piece by piece on the building on site. These are mainly installed in low-rise buildings or smaller areas. This is because to reach higher altitudes, external access is essential. To this end, other requirements will be required, such as scaffolding, cranes, etc.
Because on-site adjustments are possible, the system described above has the advantage of low transportation costs. But the recorded time and labor consumption are high.
Modular curtain wall systems involve assembly through interlocking units purchased from the factory. The entire assembly is purchased together from the factory as a whole. There is no need to install each component separately like a sticky curtain wall system. The size of the combined curtain wall depends on the floor height of the building. Therefore, you must keep in mind the method of transportation and installation when planning the depth of the facade. This system is mainly used in high-rise buildings. No external support such as a crane or scaffolding is required. During installation, only a mini crane or a temporary hoist can be placed on the floor to keep it help.
Thanks to factory manufacturing, the system has the advantage of faster construction and higher quality. However, due to the need to provide greater protection during transportation, it has achieved higher transportation costs.
