Curtain walling systems provides the perfect solution for the external cladding of any building capable of allowing in large amounts of natural light through large expanses of clear glass, creating a feeling of space and providing the perfect interface with the outside world whilst maintaining the safety, security and comfort levels of the building’s internal environment for the benefit of its occupants.
Curtain walling is a great option for those looking for non-structural and lightweight walls to cover a larger area, which is more cost effective than construction. We construct these walls using aluminium and glass material. Aluminium is a lightweight, non-corrosive material that adds to the strength of these walls. When glass is used as the curtain wall the great advantage is that it allows natural light to flow into the building.
The curtain wall facade only carries its own weight and no dead load weight from the building. The wall transfers horizontal wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, sway induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building and its own dead load weight forces.
