Elegance with style and format – filigree glass facades and narrow face widths can be realized with a mullion and transom facade.
Post-and-rail facades are part of the curtain wall facades, so the facade does not bear any static loads. It consists of load-bearing profiles made of steel, wood or aluminum. The vertical posts are attached to the ceilings and take over the load transfer, the horizontal bars are connected to the posts. The filling elements are fastened separately, window and door elements are clamped accordingly. The internal drainage takes place on two levels, the free areas in the rebate spaces are additionally provided with thermal insulation. Elastic seals are used between the mullion and transom framework and the facade fields, so that no water can penetrate into the rebate area. Architects and civil engineers consciously opt for mullion and transom facades due to the slim profiles. In the modern sector, they enable filigree structures of multi-storey facades with a minimum profile width of 35mm.
