Advantages of aluminum curtain wall
Compared with the glass curtain wall, the aluminum curtain wall has many advantages. The aluminum curtain wall has high safety, and the aluminum profile is lighter than glass, which is safer than the glass curtain wall and avoids the accident of the glass curtain wall falling and hurting people. The aluminum profile has good processing performance, it can process various board shapes, can add concave and convex lines arbitrarily, and can process various forms of curved lines, which can adapt to the design of various complex shapes. Aluminum profiles have many colors, including stone-like texture, wood-like texture, granite, RAL international standard color system, and various printing patterns.
