Whether you are working on a project with a window wall or curtain wall façade, designing the edge of slab condition is complex. Having a strong understanding of the requirements of these applications can help eliminate issues later in design, construction or post construction phases.
"We help you from the very beginning of the process - designing and advising on optimum engineering solutions for curtain wall fixations and firestopping."
Design for anchor fasteners - fixing base plates and handrails. Hilti software technology allows designers and specifiers to quickly, easily evaluate Hilti anchor producys and systems - and then choose hte best solution for any conditions.
Design and model facades fixations quickly and accurately. Through a simple, user-friendly interface, you can design anchor fastenings for seisimic applications, fatigue loading or dynamic loading in concrete according to the most current building codes and regulations.
Firestop applications are never cookie-cutter and rare simple. When a job-site firestop application deviates from our wide variety of testing firestop systems, trained and degreed HIlti fire protection engineers are ready to provide a customised engineering design to meet your needs.
We are there to help you during the curtain wall production process, delivering a wide offer of products and solutions depending on your requirements. Curtain wall elements such as mullions, transoms or utilised panels are prepared for installation in a controlled manufacturing environment. It requires high precision and tolerance to achieve fast assembly process on site. All components built in a factory will require engineered drawings and layouts for building code approval. Hilti offers ideal solutions for drilling, cutting and panels assembly solutions.
Our certified HIlti engineers and account managers can help throughout your project, from design to installation - working with you on the jobsite to find solutions when it comes to installation of stick or unitised systems, glass walls, sky lights or fixing cladding.
With the direct fastening technology, a powder-actuated fastening tool is used to drive a nail or threaded studs into concrete or steel. Provides high fastening rate and easy to use solution for curtain wall fastening. Due to constant exposure to external environment stainless steel nails or threaded studs to be used.
Complex curtain wall designs often present planners with a major challenge - especially when time is at a premium. Planning and execution of the work thus sometimes run almost parallel. Changes to plans at short notice can make it impossible to use anchor channels on all areas of the structure. For these situations, hilti offers a range of stud anchors that provides versatile, well-proven solutions for fastening facades which also includes revolutionary new hilti HUS 3 undercut anchor.
Hilti is the first and only manufacturer to have a tested perimeter fire barrier system for 100% vision glass. The system (HI/BPF 120-11) provides an aesthetically pleasing fire-rated assembly for floor-to-ceiling glass design with Class IV movement capabilities in a fully unitised assembly.
Perimeter wall fire barriers pose unique design challenges to architects and engineers.
Like all construction joints, the curtain wall joint is a dynamic system that is constantly moving with minute shifts against the building structure. Specifying a curtain wall system that does not properly address movement, leakage and water ratings could lead to costly retrofitting down the road.
Hilti has developed a line of products to meet these requirements along with tested and approved systems to address a wide range of exterior configurations.
