Techlever Engineering develops and produces substructure systems for ventilated curtain walls that would be competitively priced and could be installed rapidly. Systems are based exclusively on the use of vertical elements that have been designed to allow for workbench pre-assembly, thus avoiding situations whereby the sections are awaiting on-site assembly, which cannot take place due to variable weather conditions. The sections offer maximum flexibility and make it easy to mount the facing panels, and equally easy to substitute any of those panels should they become damaged over time.
The research team has developed almost all of substructure systems, which are unusual in that they enable the anchoring of aisi type 304 stainless-steel external curtain wall hooks to extruded aluminium alloy uprights without the use of rivets, while still guaranteeing a solid, permanently fixed attachment.
