Various aesthetic effects are required by the modern buildings, which are to be realized with the help of decorative function of the curtain wall. Therefore, various decorative components will usually be hung on the stick curtain wall. There are various decorative components, which are generally divided into integrated type, cantilevered type and decorative grid. Such decorative components can be laid both horizontally and vertically.
Integrated Type Decorative Components
This refers to the horizontal or vertical decorative components. These components are usually made of aluminum extrusions and connected to the main frame by embedding or bolts. The width of decorative components is generally same with main frames. When the connections are made by embedding, the height that the outer decorative component cantilevered from the curtain wall should not exceed 100mm. The oversized decorative components are connected by bolts. There are various sections available for the decorative components (see the Fig).
Cantilever Type Decorative Components
Being independent from the main frame of curtain wall, this type of decorative components is connected with the main frame by brackets.

● Vertical cantilevered decorative components
★Vertical decorative columns
◇Decorative stone columns
◇Decorative columns with aluminum cladding
◇Terracotta Decorative Columns, etc.
★Vertical decorative fins
◇ Glass fins

Arranged in parallel within a certain distance of strip elements, to form a similar of decorative fence construction,Set in the horizontal or vertical according to the requirements of decorative effect; also be set by other rules or no rules, metal profile, metal panel or ceramic and nonmetallic materials can be used to fabricate, According to design requirements, can be turned into grid decorative or other custom pattern.
Punching or Hollow Metal Decorative Panel
Through the metal panel by punching, stamping convex shape, hollow design as well as bending, compression-type methods for the fabrication, with good permeability and decorative, elegant appearance.
