It composed of panel and the supporting structure system, the relative displacement of the main structure has certain ability Where glass curtain wall systems cover four sides of highrise buildings, a lot of energy savings can be achieved with such solution. The highly insulated panelized system creates the structure and insulation (30) around the glass panes. Curtain wall system comprises one of the elements of facade technology in high rise building. Facades involves window wall, cladding elements and curtain walls which generates the exterior envelope of the building.

Analysis and Design of Curtain Wall Systems for High Rise Buildings A dissertation submitted by WONG WAN SIE, WINXIE In fulfillment of the requirements of Courses ENG4111 and 4112 Research Project towards the degree of Bachelor of Civil Engineering Submitted: November, 2007 Jan 12, 2017Window walls offer a costeffective alternative to curtain walls while achieving a similar look for the buildings exterior. Traditionally, window wall units are manufactured and glazed offsite.
