(1) Glass installation

(1) Measure and pay off

a. According to the large scale drawing of the curtain wall and the elevation points, the entry and exit lines and the position of the axis, use tools such as heavy hammers, steel wires, measuring instruments and spirit levels on the main body to determine the curtain wall plane, column division and corners. Weiyi adjusted and retested.

b. The horizontal elevation should be drawn up from the ground layer by layer to avoid accumulation of errors.

(2) Installation of embedded parts

a. Position the embedded parts according to the drawings while measuring and laying out the lines.

b. Check whether the position of the embedded parts is accurate. The upper and lower deviation should not be greater than 10mm or so and the deviation should not be greater than 20mm. If the deviation is too large, install the post-embedded parts.

(3) Installation of the skeleton

The column is connected to the connector first, and then the connector is spot welded on the embedded steel plate, and then the position is adjusted. The verticality of the column can be controlled by the hanging hammer. After the position is adjusted accurately, the iron code can be formally welded to the embedded iron piece.

a. Columns are generally vertical components, which are one of the keys to the installation and construction of curtain walls. Its accuracy and quality will affect the installation quality of the entire curtain wall. The allowable deviation of the distance between the plane axis of the curtain wall through the connector and the outer plane axis of the building should be controlled within 2mm, especially for the curtain wall whose building plane is arc-shaped, circular and closed around, the distance between the inner and outer axis will affect the circumference of the curtain increase. long and should be taken seriously.

b. The beam is generally a horizontal member, which is embedded and connected in sections in the column, and the connectors at both ends of the beam are installed at the predetermined position of the column. The beam is sleeved on the connector, do not fix it, and intentionally shorten the blanking length slightly during production, so that there is a certain gap at the joint. Since the columns are connected by sleeves, there is a gap at the joint, and there is also a gap between the beam and the column, so that the column and the beam can form a frame skeleton with a certain deformation ability after installation, so as to adapt to and eliminate building deflection deformation and temperature deformation. impact and increase its carrying capacity. However, if the beam has an arc, broken line or corner, in order to prevent the beam from falling off, the beam and the connector should be fixed.

b. Clean the glue injection seam: Use a clean and non-hairing cleaning cloth and xylene, and use the "two-piece rag method" to clean the glue injection seam within half an hour before the glue injection.

c. Paste textured paper.

d. Glue injection: The glue joint should be injected with glue as soon as possible within half an hour after cleaning, and it should be cleaned again after the time is exceeded.

f. Squeegee: The squeegee should smooth the glue seam (or concave surface) along the same side, and pay attention to the curing time of the sealant.

(2) Installation of aluminum decorative lines

(1) Measure and pay off

a. Offset the axis of the main body outwards according to the design, so as to determine the positioning line and dividing line of the curtain wall. Use theodolite or laser vertical instrument to lead the axis, outside and inside corners of the curtain wall to a high place according to the requirements of the large sample drawing, and use the steel wire fixed on the steel bracket as the marking control line.

b. Use a spirit level and a standard steel tape measure to draw out an elevation line of ±0.00, and pop up an elevation line on the wall to review the accuracy of the aluminum panel keel.

c. Draw detailed drawings of plate arrangement. Due to the many changes in the external dimensions of this project and the required specifications of the plates, in order to facilitate processing and construction needs, detailed processing drawings should be prepared for all aluminum plates to ensure the accuracy of the stone materials.

d. The distribution measurement error should be controlled during measurement, and the error should not be accumulated.

e. The measurement and release should be carried out under the condition that the wind force is not greater than level 4, and measures to avoid the wind should be taken.

f. After the positioning of the line, the control line should be checked regularly to ensure the correctness of the verticality of the curtain wall and the position of the metal beam.
