Best Answer

Structural glazing takes the load of the building elements- you don't need an additional wall or column to support the building whereas curtain wall is only for the facade treatment: separate structural assembly should be provided on the inner side for taking the builiding load.

What are the differences between uPVC and PVC?

PVC is the acronym for polyvinylchloride. It is a thermoplastic polymer. It is one of the most commonly used thermoplastic polymers, and is one of the highest revenue-generating products in the chemical industry. It is used to make electric wires, polyvinylchloride (PVC) pipes and unplasticised polyvinylchloride (uPVC) pipes. The most common use of polyvinylchloride (PVC) is to make pipes. The pipes are most commonly used for the purposes of drainage and for protecting or containing the cables in buildings. Unplasticised polyvinylchloride (abbreviated as uPVC) is a low maintenance material. It is used in the construction industry. It is available in a variety of colours and finishes. The photo-effect wood finish of unplasticised polyvinylchloride is used in window frames and window sills as a substitute for painted wood. It is also used as a replacement for older windows which have been installed with a single glazing or while installing double glazing in a new building.

What is structural glazing?

Structural glass is glass which has gone through a manufacturing process to enable it to be used for structural elements of buildings. The resulting product enables walls, floors and ceilings in buildings to be transparent and can even be load bearing. Structural glazing is made by "heating sheets of glass uniformly after manufacture until it is plastic and then rapid cooling with jets of air. The outer layers closest to the jets of air cool and solidify first; they contract as they cool. As the inner layers try to follow they throw the outer layers into compression. This process creates a glass that is about 7 times stronger than ordinary / untreated float glass." (Mike Lee, Edinburgh Napier Uni, 2009)
