Copper Curtain Wall

February 23, 2008

Copper and copper-alloy facade systems

Although copper has been used as a roofing material for centuries, its current application as a curtain-wall material is notable. Copper adds a warmth and richness to building facades just as it does rooftops. Shanghai Kang Yu Jie Sen regards copper as a living material that changes over time depending on environmental factors. In addition to exploiting copper’s natural patina, the company also utilizes the malleability of copper to forge three-dimensional shapes and imprint the surface with various images or textures.
