Application of alliance glass in construction

To fully understand the use of glass in architecture, we must first understand several common architectural glasses. For different occasions, designers are pursuing different things, and they need a glass with different functions.

Tempered glass

Tempered glass is made by pouring float glass (glass made by the float method) in a tempering furnace, and pour the molten glass on a liquid with a specific gravity greater than that of the molten glass-usually on the surface of liquid tin, so that the glass can be shaped, which can reduce mechanical glass making Uneven or containing bubbles, etc.) heat it to near the softening point, and then quickly and uniformly cool it to form uniform compressive stress on its surface, improve its mechanical strength, and effectively improve the wind pressure and impact resistance of the glass.

Performance characteristics: high strength, good safety, stable heat resistance, large deflection (when under load, the maximum tensile stress is not on the surface of the glass, but in the center of the board)

Self-explosion phenomenon: It is mainly caused by the volume expansion caused by the phase change of nickel sulfide (NIS) in the glass, which is difficult to completely eliminate.

Hot-bent tempered glass: The original float glass is heated to the softening temperature, then it is bent into shape by its own weight or external force and cooled naturally to make the required curved glass. It is mostly used in curved glass curtain walls, sightseeing elevators, indoor curved glass partitions, glass guardrails, indoor furniture, etc.

Ultra-white glass

Ultra-white glass is a kind of ultra-transparent low-iron glass, also known as low-iron glass and high-transparent glass. It is a new type of high-quality, multi-functional, high-end glass, with a light transmittance of more than 91.5%, and has the characteristics of crystal clear, high-end, and elegant.

Laminated glass

Laminated glass is a composite glass made by sandwiching a tough polyvinyl butyral film (PVB) between two or more pieces of glass, which is made through high temperature and high pressure.

Performance characteristics: good safety, noise reduction, UV protection, bulletproof and explosion-proof

Other common interlayers: color film, special plastic film, special paper, man-made board, etc. (The purpose is to use the weather resistance, transparency, and sealing properties of glass to achieve the sensory effects pursued by the design)

Hollow glass

Use two pieces (or three pieces) of glass and use a high-strength and high-air-tight composite adhesive to bond the glass pieces to the aluminum alloy frame containing a desiccant to produce high-efficiency sound insulation, heat preservation, and anti-condensation Exposed glass. Insulating glass is widely used in various building curtain walls, doors, and windows, indoor partitions or freezers, etc.

The alliance glass

The alliance glass is a kind of glass widely used in the construction industry. Wallkingdon Glass provides first-class products and services to exceed customer expectations.

We know the types of glass. What are the main applications of glass in architecture?

Glass curtain wall

The birth of the glass curtain wall originated from Kandinsky’s "Glass Boundary" concept in 1909. The Harid Building in the United States in 1917 was regarded as the first building to put it into practice, and the true glass curtain wall was made in 1952. Hua Building, after decades of development, modern glass curtain wall technology has been very mature, mainly including frame-supported glass curtain wall, point-supported glass curtain wall, and all-glass curtain wall.

Frame-supported glass curtain wall

Frame-supported glass curtain wall: The periphery of the glass panel is supported by a metal frame, which can be divided into the component type and unit type according to different installation forms; and according to the different effects produced, it can be divided into the exposed frame, semi-hidden frame and hidden frame.

Component type

Component type: The curtain wall keel is connected to the building structure through embedded parts, and then glass panels are installed. The exposed frame curtain wall will be covered on the outside of the keel, and the hidden frame will use weather-resistant sealant to seal the gap. Component-type curtain walls require on-site construction of supporting keels and then installation of glass. Compared with unit-type curtain walls, the unit square cost is lower, subsequent maintenance is more convenient, and it is suitable for curved glass curtain walls or complex building shapes.

Unitary

Unit type: Unit type curtain wall is made up of aluminum alloy frame, glass, cushions, insulation materials, shock absorption, and waterproof materials, and decorative fabrics. The curtain wall unit is assembled in the factory in advance, and then transported to the site for hoisting and assembly, and directly connected to the building structure. Connected, it is installed quickly and has high flatness, which is especially suitable for super high-rise buildings.

Point-supported glass curtain wall

Point-supported glass curtain wall: It is composed of decorative surface glass and connecting component supporting structure. The completed curtain wall is more transparent. According to different structural forms, it can be divided into cable-net-type point-supported curtain walls, tie-rod-type point-supported curtain walls, and glass ribs. Point support curtain wall, etc.

Full glass curtain wall

Full glass curtain wall: It is divided into rear support type, seat-mounted type, and hoisting type. The rear support type is composed of glass ribs and glass panels. The former supports and the rear of the panel. The structure is essentially a point-supported glass curtain wall, but the effect is purer and transparent; the seat-mounted type is that the glass sits directly on the structural beams and slabs of the building; the hoisting type is that the glass panel is suspended by the upper suspension device.
