Curtain walling has become a popular structural feature in the last few years because of it’s strength and thermal properties. Double glazed aluminium curtain walling offers design flexibility, as it can be complimented by many other products, including windows, doors, rain screen panels, louvers and sun shading.
The profiles are based around 75mm, 100mm and 125mm mullion and transom designs, plus a 50mm box transom. The choice of profile sizes and frame design is determined by the expected exposure to local wind pressures.
By calculating the wind load factors, dimensions of curtain wall sections can be chosen to satisfy most load conditions

Curtain walling systems are outer coverings for buildings in which the outer walls are non-structural. Therefore they can be manufactured from lightweight materials, like aluminium, thus reducing construction costs. Curtain walling systems are typically designed with extruded aluminium members. The aluminium frame is typically in-filled with glass, which allows in large amounts of natural light 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 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.
