Metal Buildings Specification

The metal buildings uses steel to form a load-bearing structure. Generally, beams, columns, trusses, and other components made of section steel and steel plates constitute a load-bearing structure, which together with roof, wall, and floor, form a building.

Compared with traditional concrete buildings, metal structure buildings use steel plates or section steel instead of reinforced concrete, higher strength, and better seismic resistance. And because the components can be manufactured in factories and installed on-site, the construction period is greatly reduced. Due to the reusability of steel, it can greatly reduce construction waste and become more environmentally friendly. Therefore, it is widely used in industrial buildings and civil buildings all over the world.

Advantage
1. Greatly save construction time. Construction is not affected by the season
2. Increase the use area of buildings, reduce construction waste and environmental pollution
3. Building materials can be reused, stimulating the development of other new building materials industries
4. Good seismic performance, easy to transform, flexible and convenient in use, bringing comfort and so on
5. High strength, lightweight, high safety and wealth of components, and lower building cost

Disadvantages:
1. Heat-resistant and non-fire-resistant, fire-resistant coatings are required
2. It is susceptible to corrosion, and the surface needs to be coated with anti-corrosion coatings to reduce or avoid corrosion and increase durability

Windows and doors for metal buildings play an essential role. They are a necessary part of the pre-engineered metal buildings. Their shape, size, proportion, arrangement, color all have a significant influence on the overall form of the building. After thousands of years’ development, there are now more requirements for the functions of windows and doors.

The windows and doors are requiring to be with more functions such as thermal break insulation, heat insulation, sound insulation, waterproofing, fire prevention, and, more importantly, energy-saving, and so on. The heat loss in the gaps between windows and doors in cold areas accounts for about 25% of the total heating consumption. The requirements for the tightness of windows and doors are essential content in energy-saving design.

The type of windows and doors for metal buildings

Since its development, windows, and doors have gone through four eras: wood, steel, aluminum alloy, PVC windows, and doors.

Wooden windows and doors are moderate in price, weak in appearance, poor in tightness, afraid of fire, flammable, easy to deform and crack. They are only suitable for low-grade, general places, high maintenance costs, and short life.

Window and door for metal buildings

Steel welded windows and doors have low prices, low grades, natural corrosion, easy deformation, high maintenance costs, short service life, and are facing obsolescence.

Window and door for metal buildings

Aluminum alloy windows and doors have excellent flame retardancy, luxurious appearance but poor integrity, easy deformation, poor thermal insulation, and weak sound insulation.

Windows and doors for metal buildings

Aluminum alloy windows and doors for metal buildings have become the leading choices, due to their lightweight, ruggedness, corrosion resistance, proper sealing, and beautiful luster. Aluminum alloy ruggedness is the first choice for both ordinary houses and industrial buildings.

Let’s see the comparison of different profiles of windows and doors

ProfilesAdvantageDisadvantageRemark
Wood window & doorThe unique texture and decorative effect, most affinity, low thermal conductivity of wood, high strength, environmental protection, can be processed into different shapescombustible, easy to deform, difficult to repair after being damaged, easy to crack/scar, poor corrosion resistance, easy to be attacked by insectsUsually use for internal doors
Steel window & doorGood to large-scale production, high strength, easy processing, low cost, low operating management costs, and low prices.Easy to rust, single shape, high thermal conductivity, poor decorative effectUsually use for big roller shutter doors for warehouse or industrial buildings.
UPVC window & doorLow management and operating costs, price advantages, and corrosion resistance.Poor angular strength, not resistant to yellowing, poor overall strength and easy to become brittle.Not suitable for high-rise buildings, not suitable for places with severe or hot and humid climates.
Aluminum window & doorIt is not easy to rust. Be suitable for large-scale industrial production. The price is relatively low, the weight is light, the handling is convenient, and the installation progress is fast. It can be made into very complex sections and structures and can be specially adapted for modification. fair price.High thermal conductivity and poor sealing. Especially for sliding windows.The most commonly used material. It can be used in various buildings, places, and different climate areas.
Thermal break bridge aluminum window & doorImproved technology, reduced thermal conductivity, better sound insulation, and good thermal insulation.The cost is higher. Can not use for sliding windows.Better quality than pure aluminum alloy windows and doors, but the price is higher.
Aluminum with wood window & doorHigh quality, can choose suitable wood grain decoration. Heat preservation, good energy-saving effect, and strong sealing performance.The price is too high to make it widely application.Suitable for residential, high-end office, hotel, etc.

Below are different opening styles of windows and doors for metal buildings.

Open stylesAdvantageDisadvantageRemark
Fixed WindowLittle accessories, low price. Good sealing.It cannot open for ventilation.Generally, it is not used alone, which is usually used with casement windows. Or use for the workshop for daylighting.
Casement windowLarge opening area, good ventilation, good sealing performance, excellent sound insulation, heat preservation, and impermeability. The inside-opening window cleaning is convenient; the outside-opening does not take up space when opened.The window is small so the view is not wide. It is easy to be damaged when the wind is strong. The inside window takes up some of the space in the room, and it is not convenient to use the screen window.One of the most popular opening methods for residential and other buildings.
Sliding windowSimple and beautiful, large window, large glass block, wide field of vision, high daylighting rate, glass cleaning is convenient, flexible use, safe and reliable, long service life, open in one plane, occupy less space, and easy installation of screensTwo panels cannot be opened at the same time, and can only be opened at the half, the ventilation is relatively poor; sometimes the sealing is also slightly poor.A sliding window is the most economical choice for residential or other buildings.
Casement doorLarge opening area, good ventilation, good sealing performance, excellent sound insulation, heat preservation, and impermeability.Takes up a certain opening space.The most commonly used opening method for residential or other buildings.
Sliding doorLarge glass block, wide field of vision, high daylighting rate, convenient glass cleaning, flexible use, safe and reliable, long service life, open in one plane, occupy less spaceTwo panels cannot be opened at the same time, and can only be opened at the half. Usually use for bookcases, wall cabinets, bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms or exhibition hall.
Awning windowIt can be opened in two ways, either flat or pushed from above or below. It is a new form developed on the basis of casement windows.The price is slightly higher. If you use poor-quality accessories, the window is more likely to break.It can not only be ventilated but also ensure safety. Because there are hinges, the window can only open a ten-centimeter seam, and it can not reach out from the outside.

The glass of windows and doors for metal buildings

Sure, except for the profiles and opening styles, you have to choose correct glass for your windows and doors. , the glass could be single, double glass, and triple glass. You could choose a suitable thickness according to the requirements.

Windows and doors for metal buildings

1.Single glass: The thickness could be 3/4/5/6/8/10/12/15/19mm.
Single glass is a common choice if you have no enough budget.

Single glass window

2.Double glass
Double glass could divide into the hollow glass and laminated glass.
Hollow glass: Hollow glass is formed with two or more layers of flat glass by the infusion of desiccant and polysulfide adhesive.

double glass

Besides, the hollow chamber is full of dry air or vacuum or argon gas. Argon is an inert gas, its poor thermal conductivity than air, so filled with insulating glass can reduce the U-value, increasing insulation. For LOW-E insulating glass, argon also has a role in protecting the LOW-E film. Thickness could be 4mm-9A-4mm(16), 5mm-9A-5mm(19),6mm-9A-6mm(21),6mm-12A-6mm(24)etc.

Laminated glass: laminated glass is two-layer glass sandwiched in the middle PVB, such as 6 + 1.14PVB + 6, the inner and outer glass 6mm, PVB thickness was 1.14 multiples of 0.38. There is 0.38,0.76,1.14,1.52.

Laminated glass

The thickness is usually 3/4/5/6+0.38/0.76/1.14,1.52+3/4/5/6. Laminated glass is safer because of the middle layer film tough and strong adhesion, not easy to be damaged by the impact after through debris, will not fall off, and the film bonded together tightly. It is with better shock, anti-theft, bullet-proof, explosion-proof performance.

3.Triple glass: Triple glass is the same structure as hollow glass with much better sound and thermal insulation function.

Triple glass

Of course, we have many different styles glass, such as standard float glass, tempered glass, laminated glass, tinted glass, frosted glass or obscure glass, reflective glass, decorative glass, low-E glass and so on.

1.Typical float glass: It is the original glass without future production. Then it is the most inexpensive glass.


2.Tempered glass: Tempered glass/Reinforced glass belongs to safety glass. Tempered glass is a kind of prestressed glass. Chemical or physical methods usually used to form compressive stress on the glass surface.

When the glass subjected to external forces, it first cancels the surface stress, thereby improving the bearing capacity and enhancing the glass’s Wind pressure, cold and heat, impact, etc.

Tempered glass

The advantages of Tempered glass

1)Safe: When an external force damages the glass, debris will be honeycomb-like, scrawled obtuse particles, not easily cause harm to the human body.
2)High strength: The same thickness of tempered glass impact strength and bending strength is 3 ~ 5 times of standard glass.
3)Thermal Stability: Tempered glass has excellent thermal stability, which can withstand big temperature difference, three times of conventional glass, it could withstand the 200-degree temperature changes.

3.Low-e glass: Low-e glass is also called Low radiation glass, on the glass surface plated film system of multi-layer metal or other compounds. Visible light through the coating layer and the high Cosco infrared reflection characteristics, make its compared with ordinary glass and traditional building coating glass, low e glass has excellent heat insulation effect and good light quality.

low-e glass

4. Other types of glass for choice: float glass, tinted glass, frosted glass or obscure glass, reflective glass, decorative glass are all could be made into single or double glass.

type of glass

According to the needs, you could choose a suitable glass for the windows and doors for metal buildings.
