Outline

A vertical wall which makes it possible to plan the flexible window opening area. Its execution will be done just by setting SMART BRACE only on pillars which has already covered by wallpaper. If the brace length secures 71% of the pillar's one, this system will work as vertical wall with double wall ratios. Therefore, the upper or lower side of SMART BRACE in the wall face can be designed as high or low window. This system manages not only the problem on earthquake-proof and constraints of construction, but also on day-lighting property, ensuring privacy, and design on comfort living space.
