Unitised curtain walling describes a panel system of glazing that is fully fabricated and assembled in a controlled factory environment. Like precast concrete panels, it is transported to the site on “A” frames and low loaders. It is lifted directly onto a steel or concrete superstructure and attached with special adjustable retention cleats fitted to the edges of floor plates. External Access Equipment is not required for the installation of unitised glazing systems, but the dedicated use of a crane is.
Direct costs may be greater than stick curtain walling but significantly reduced installation times, the certainty of programme and omission of access requirements lead to quicker client handover and we believe a reduction in total project costs.
