Development trends of glazed facades and roofs; Valoalaepaeisevien rakenteiden uudet ratkaisut

Technical Report:

Abstract

Glazed facades and roofs have been developed and their use has increased considerably in recent years in Finland. In this report the possible material and structural developments in glazed structures in the next few years are examined. On the material and component level, the development of glazing and plastic-based units has been evaluated. Further, the future technical properties of fibre-reinforced and aluminium composite frame structures as well as development prospects for sealants and gaskets have been considered. Glazed facades and roofs are relatively new building elements in the Finnish building industry and it is very likely that glazed structural systems will continue to develop still further. In this study three new structural systems from the many possibilities have been chosen for closer examination. Temperatures inside and outside glass and plastic-based units, some filled with light penetrable insulation materials, were recorded from full-size units under real climatic conditions for half a year. The fumes of some units were made of reinforced plastics, others of aluminium. Based on the literature and some laboratory tests, the design methods and the strength and stiffness properties of adhesive bonds between the glass unit and the aluminium frame have been studied. This building method is already  More>>

This building method is already used in some buildings in Finland. The third new building system in this study has been glazed structures without the usual aluminium frames. Based on the literature, the properties of different joint solutions, such as compressed gasket joints, adhesive joints and point connection joint, are considered and their applicability in the Finnish climate evaluated.}
