Our pre-fabricated or custom-fabricated curtain wall systems provide beautiful, contemporary non-structural outer coverings for commercial and retail buildings. Because they are non-structural, curtain walls can be made of lightweight materials that help reduce construction costs. Our curtain-wall systems are typically designed with extruded aluminum, which can then be infilled with glass. This provides an architecturally pleasing outcome, as well as benefits such as day lighting and external-view optimization. Other common infills include: stone veneer, metal panels, louvers, and operable windows or vents.
Our curtain walls are 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. Additionally, we can provide curtain wall systems rated for hurricane force winds, terrorist attacks and other natural disasters.
Curtain walls differ from storefront systems in that they are designed to span multiple floors, and take into consideration design requirements such as: thermal expansion and contraction; building sway and movement; water diversion; and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling, and lighting.
