STRUCTURAL GLAZING – UNITISED SYSTEM
Unitized systems are composed of large glass units that are created and glazed within a factory and then sent to the construction site. Since there is no on-site glazing, another major benefit of using a unitized system is the speed of installation
The unitised panels can use any combination of profiles, infill’s, external feature caps and glazing to give building designers complete aesthetic flexibility
Advantages of Unitized Glazing
Shorter programme times. Unitised solutions will help contractors and architects meet the increasing demand for shorter programme times, and can achieve impressive reductions in time on site of up to 70 per cent.
Improved quality control. Because the façade panels are completed off site, and the external envelope is less affected by inclement weather, quality control is much easier with unitised façades, giving greater peace of mind for the contractor and developer.
