The exposed frame glass curtain wall is a glass curtain wall with metal frame members exposed on the outer surface. It is framed with aluminum alloy profiles with special cross-sections, and the glass panels are fully embedded in the grooves of the profiles. Its characteristic is that the aluminum alloy profile itself has the dual functions of a skeleton structure and a fixed glass.
The exposed frame glass curtain wall is the most traditional form, the most widely used, and reliable working performance. Compared with the hidden frame glass curtain wall, it is easier to meet the requirements of construction technology level.

The metal frame of the hidden frame glass curtain wall is concealed on the back of the glass, and the metal frame is invisible outside. Hidden frame glass curtain wall can be divided into two types: fully hidden frame glass curtain wall and semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall. The semi-hidden frame glass curtain wall can be horizontally bright and vertical, or vertically bright and horizontally hidden. The structural feature of the hidden frame glass curtain wall is: the glass is on the outside of the aluminum frame, and the glass and the aluminum frame are bonded with silicone structural sealant. The load of the curtain wall is mainly borne by the sealant.
