A glass curtain wall refers to a building envelope structure or a decorative structure that is composed of a support structure system and glass and can have a certain displacement capacity with respect to the main body structure and does not share the role of the main body structure. There are two kinds of single and double glass walls. Glass curtain wall is a beautiful and novel building wall decoration method, which is a distinctive feature of modern high-rise buildings. According to the F1AP (Fata11ightAwarenessPr0gram) statistics from the Bird Protection Volunteer Association in 2013, only 1 to 9 million migratory birds died in these glass curtain walls every year in Toronto. The glass curtain wall of a modern high-rise building incorporates a combination of mirror glass and normal glass, filled with dry glass or inert gas.
Hollow glass is divided into two layers and three layers. Two layers of hollow glass are sealed by two layers of glass to form a sandwich space. Three-layer glass is composed of three layers of glass to form two mezzanine spaces. Hollow glass has the advantages of sound insulation, heat insulation, anti-frost, moisture resistance, and strong wind pressure resistance. According to measurements, when the outdoor temperature is -10°C, the temperature in front of the single-layered glass window is -2°C, while the indoor temperature using the triple-layered insulating glass is 13°C. In the hot summer, double-glazing can block 90% of solar radiant heat. The sun can still pass through the glass walls, but most of the sun does not feel hot. The use of hollow glass curtain walls can make it cool in winter and cool in summer and greatly improve the living environment.
