CURTAIN WALL

Summary
Till present the skeleton constructions have been built so that reinforced concrete skeleton was walled in either with bricks or with other similar materials. The outer walls were protected against atmospheric influences with plaster, stone, mosaic, clinker, iron plate, etc. The procedure is of last duration and unsuitable for its manufacturing workmanship, that consequently requires expensive pipe shuttering. In case of tall buildings it means a considerable high percentage of total investment price of the building.
The curtain wall of precast metal units, already a long time appreciated abroad for many good qualities, was for the first time adopted in our country.
As the first building of this kind is already built up, we can speak about certain experiences. The accomplished work has proved that the facing slabs of European qualities were erected in an extremely short term.
The first instance of facing slabs elevation in our country represents the commercial office multi-storied building »Metalka« in Ljubljana. The building is a combination of reinforced concrete skeleton with wind kernel. It is coated with curtain wall of aluminium precast units. This execution proved again that the metal is to be acknowledged as an adequate material in our building.
