CURTAIN WALL

A Curtain Wall system is an outer covering of a building in which the outer walls are non-structural, utilized to keep the weather out and the occupants in. Since curtain wall is non-structural, it can be made of lightweight materials, thereby reducing construction costs. When glass is used as the curtain wall, an advantage is that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building. The wall transfers lateral wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, absorb sway induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building, withstand wind loads, and support its own weight.

WINDOW WALL SYSTEM

A Window Wall System is achieved by placing glazing between a building’s concrete slabs, using the slabs as structural support. Window walls have a break between the glass, with covers used to conceal the concrete. Window walls are often used in condominiums and high rises as they allow for more customizable sections such as windows and balcony doors. Aside from advantages such as customizability, and cost savings, Window Wall Systems also require less engineering and safety considerations as the exterior wall is broken up by each floors’ concrete slab, providing built-in fire stopping. Also, because the separation of each window wall unit creates a sealed space there is less noise transfer and energy loss. Further, if a unit becomes damaged and needs repair that specific unit can be removed and replaced without affecting the adjoining units. Our frames are infilled with limitless glass options to help you achieve your goals whether aesthetically pleasing, control of daylighting and comforts such as solar heat gain.

STOREFRONT SYSTEM

A Storefront Glazing System is typically non-residential, non-load bearing assembly of commercial entrance systems and windows, spanning from the floor to the structure above. They provide businesses and commercial spaces with aesthetic appeal, direct sunlight, and sufficient thermal performance. Unlike curtainwall systems, storefront are typically only utilized in one to three stories, low structural performance applications. Our aluminum Storefront frames are infilled with limitless glass options to help you achieve your goals whether it is branding of your business or comfort of your customers and employees.
