Glass Sandwich Facades

The Glass Sandwich Façade is a warm façade and consists of transparent and opaque areas. The Glass Sandwich Façade combines the opaque Glass Sandwich Panel (GSP) with conventional window and façade frame profiles. There are many different design options. Through partnerships with suppliers of façade systems, iconic skin is compatible at all the relevant interfaces.

The Glass Sandwich Panel (GSP) consists of an outer printed glass sheet bonded to a standard sandwich panel. This creates a glass exterior in the form of panels up to a height of 16 m. This results in a homogeneous and flush façade surface in glass.

This paper discusses research and development with a main focus on structural testing and numerical verification of the glass sandwich panel. Furthermore, it is shown how to integrate window and door elements flush with the façade surface.
