Window walls are a newcomer to the glazing industry. Before the 1990s, these innovative full-span glass wall systems did not exist as they do now.
Window walls are independent walls of glass from floor to ceiling, installed in interiors and exteriors of commercial, industrial, and residential buildings.
Options in Window Walls
Window wall systems come in a multitude of styles, sizes, colors, and hardware options. Many window wall systems open to provide ventilation and walk-through access, and some installations are stationary.
Window walls that open don’t just slide from side to side like a regular sliding glass door: Instead, they can be designed to fold up like a bi-fold closet door, tilt sideways like a jalousie window, or pivot on a central pin. Sliding from side to side is also an option.
Color options for finishes of frames include:
Window walls come in panels up to 16-feet high, and operable doors within the wall can be up to 60-inches wide. Thermal control systems can be added to the window wall components for maximum energy-efficiency.
Benefits of Window Walls
Window wall systems are usually significantly less expensive than curtain walls, often costing as much as 50 percent less.
These glass walling systems also transmit significantly less sound than curtain walls because they do not connect to internal building structures that can transfer vibrations.
You can use these versatile building systems in almost any type of construction, including:
- Private homes
- Office spaces
- Commercial buildings
- Industrial settings
