Non structural single skin elements

Non structural single skin elements perform purely an aesthetic function and can be used for a number of shapes and forms such as mullions, spandrels, parapets, columns casings etc. A suitable primary support structure (steel or concrete) will need to be provided for this type of element. This will need to extend (at floor and column locations) to within close proximity of the rear face of the cladding and to achieve this some secondary steel work may be required.
