The development status and prospects of glass curtain wall
The glass curtain wall of a building is the most commonly used form of curtain wall in today's high-rise buildings. It is the product of the integration of modern technology and construction technology. Because the architectural glass curtain wall has many advantages such as architectural decoration, rain and wind protection, sound insulation and heat insulation, energy saving and heat preservation, and its construction cost is also decreasing with the progress of production technology.
Therefore, the architectural curtain wall can not only effectively improve the external aesthetics of the building, but also effectively improve its comprehensive performance, so as to achieve higher economic and social benefits. At present, China is already the largest producer and user of architectural curtain wall, and the market development prospect is broad.
In the 1980s, it began to rise in China's architectural circles. Compared with foreign advanced building materials, China's advanced building materials started to develop relatively late, but the development process is relatively fast. With the continuous progress of material technology and manufacturing process of domestic building curtain wall, the design and production process of building glass curtain wall are developing in the direction of environmental protection and energy saving.
As China becomes the world's largest glass curtain wall manufacturing and application country, the formulation of industrial standards will become more and more standardized.
First of all, my country has begun to pay attention to the safety of glass curtain walls, and has issued a number of regulations on building safety. Second, the establishment of energy-saving standards for building glass curtain walls has been launched one after another. Third, the ecological standards for architectural glass curtain walls are mainly to solve the problems of noise pollution, electrical carbon pollution, light pollution, and dust pollution of glass curtain walls, especially in dealing with light pollution of glass curtain walls. Many regions in China also have corresponding systems and standards.
To sum up, the industry standards for architectural glass curtain walls are constantly improving, which will promote my country's architectural glass curtain wall industry to gradually move towards a healthy and sustainable development path.
As we all know, the application of glass curtain wall in the construction industry mainly focused on its decoration, aesthetics and lighting functions at first. However, with the continuous development of green buildings and intelligent buildings, more attention has been paid to the use of energy-saving and environmental protection performance in the design and installation of glass curtain walls.
For example, the advent of intelligent glass curtain wall, in a broad sense, it includes multiple subsystems such as glass curtain wall, air conditioning system, ventilation system, automatic control system and environmental monitoring system. It can not only meet the ventilation, sound insulation, lighting and other needs of the building, but also can significantly reduce the indoor heat loss, so that the running time of the air conditioner and the operating cost of the building heating can be significantly reduced.
Glass is the main component of the architectural glass curtain wall, its performance plays a pivotal role in its overall performance. As China's requirements for green building and energy-saving building construction are getting higher and higher, the use of energy-saving and environmentally friendly glass curtain wall materials will be an inevitable development trend.
The current definition of energy-saving glass is the use of coated, hollow, and vacuum technology preparation, with significant thermal insulation effect of glass products for construction. From the development of domestic glass curtain walls, hollow LOW-E glass is currently the most widely used energy-saving glass material.
With the advancement of technology and people's pursuit of the beauty of architectural appearance, glass curtain walls are constantly developing and innovating. In the future, the development prospects of glass curtain walls will be broader, focusing on ecology, environmental protection, energy saving and decoration and other functions.
For example, photoelectric glass curtain walls and smart glass curtain walls have become the mainstream development direction of the industry. We need to continuously promote the sustainable development of glass curtain walls in technological innovation and practice, integrate green and scientific development ideas into our lives, and promote the green and low-carbon development of China's glass curtain wall industry.
