Unitised curtain walling was developed to overcome the problems associated with the installation of stick systems (see Chapter 7) and to reduce the on-site installation time. It consists of large panels, usually as big as can be transported from the factory to site. Typically, unitised panels are storey height and 1.5 m wide. In their most developed form these panels can be storey height and up to 9 m long.
