A curtain wall system is an outer covering of a building in which the outer walls are non-structural. As the curtain wall is non-structural, it can be made of a lightweight material, reducing construction costs. When glass is used as the curtain wall, a great advantage is that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building.
A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration.The aluminium frame is typically infilled with glass, which provides an architecturally pleasing building, as well as benefits such as day lighting. However, parameters related to solar gain control such as thermal comfort and visual comfort are more difficult to control when using highly glazed curtain walls. Other common infills include: stone veneer, metal panels, louvres, and operable windows or vents.

Curtain walls differ from store-front 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 in the building.

We fabricate the curtain wall glazing as per clients and expertise instructions. You will be able to achieve complete flexibility with the horizontal sliding, whether it is for shop front, business entrance or partitions. Such glazing endows with a range of exterior appearances, and on the other hand is characterized by closely spaced vertical and horizontal caps with glass or metal infill panels. A finished exterior appearance and sometime a semi-finished interior might be availed with the help of such systems.
