CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM

A Curtain Wall is defined as thin, aluminum –framed wall, containing in-fills of glass, metal panels or thin stone. The framing is attached to the building structure and does not carry the floor or roof loads of the building. The wind and gravity loads of the curtain wall are transferred to the building structure, typically at the floor line. Aluminum framed wall systems date back to the 1930’s and has developed rapidly after World War 2 when the supply of aluminum became available for non-military use.

Curtain wall systems range from manufacturers’ standard catalogue systems to specialized custom walls. The later becomes cost competitive with standard systems as the wall area increases.

Curtain walls are divided into two main types:
1) Conventional curtain wall (covered extremely with aluminum vertical, horizontal or 2 way cover caps).
2) VEC curtain walls (structural glaze d units with no aluminum external cover).
