Add-On Glass Curtain Walls

In certain cases, it is aesthetically or structurally beneficial to design curtain walls with supporting structures made from wood or steel. Rp Technik Australia has a large range of systems which makes it possible to fix the glazing on such supporting structures directly. This offers designers free choice of supporting material – Steel or wood – for an identical outer appearance and glazing technology for the curtain wall.
