Curtain walls are multi-paned units that are separated by the casing material, which is usually aluminum. These are absolutely beautiful design pieces that enable a building’s design to take on a sculptured look.
You can see them used in low rise buildings that have morphed out of the basic rectangle to become something unique. They work well in industrial complexes or for buildings that are standalone in design.
A curtain wall is different than all other glass fronts. These units are meant to span more than just a single floor. A window wall is a wall of windows within a single floor unit. A curtain wall extends over multiple floors.
They are technologically smart. They work with the building’s design to flex and contract in response to thermal fluctuations within the building. They are designed to be structurally sound, regardless of commonplace environmental pressures. They add thermal efficiency to a building by blocking heat and cold during different times of the year.
The offer a variety of design options such as frame depth and frame width. They are available in multiple styles such as single or double glazing. The window glazing is solar interactive, helping to reduce UV exposure. The frames can be set up with stone infills or metal infills, and they can be fitted with louvers that help to increase privacy and decrease solar intrusions.
