Types and Uses

The stunning look of many modern buildings is down to the development of curtain walling. This type of façade, where the outer wall is non-structural, allows for the use of a great deal of glazing, resulting in natural light for the building’s occupants and increased creativity for architects and designers.

Curtain walling façades do not carry any dead load from the building, but transfer wind loads through connections at floors or columns of the main structure. They provide an outer covering that protects occupants from the weather and improves thermal efficiency. Curtain walling differs from store fronts in that it covers multiple floors.

Typically constructed of steel or aluminium, façade systems are designed to resist water infiltration, wind sway and seismic forces and cope with thermal expansion and contraction. Although glass is the most popular infill material, metal or stone veneer panels are also used. Advanced sealing methods mean that today’s high performance curtain walls are very low maintenance.
