The concept of an element, or unitized façade is inspiring due to endless possibilities in design freedom whilst keeping a high quality finished product due to pre-fabrication. Element façades are composed out of individual pre-fabricated elements. This results in a fast and economic installation with limited use of resources in manpower and tooling compared to traditional curtain walls. This construction principle is extremely suitable for high rise constructions, allowing for the necessary tolerances with regard to the building movement, and giving the opportunity to finish the building construction floor by floor allowing for parallel construction inside the building.

There are several improvements from previous system CW 65. ElementFaçade 7 has a completely redesigned anchor to allow easy and fast installation and adjustment, as well as increased tolerances to compensate ever-growing live loads. It also optimises industrialised fabrication by introducing the straight-cut corner connection, and further increases installation speed by enabling even larger double-element assemblies.
Next to that, ElementFaçade 7 enables easy glass pane replacement in both structural glazing and glazing bead solutions, for both the element and the spandrel area. The sum of all this emphasises that this system is ready for the buildings of the future.
