Clearview have been providing aluminium windows and doors for commercial buildings for a number of years, meeting the demands of builders all over the Yorkshire region.
During that time, there has been a shift in the use of glass and aluminium products. With more and more architects using or choosing to use glass to help them create more aesthetically pleasing shop or office designs, curtain walling is becoming the best way to achieve quality and great looks.
Curtain walling features copious amounts of glass but it is best described as a ‘non-load bearing system of glazing’. This is then hung or attached to the buildings structure. Despite this however, usually the feature becomes an integral part of the buildings construction, both externally and internally.
What makes some of the most impressive designs therefore even more amazing is that factors have had to be considered during the design and manufacturing processes to ensure the curtain wall can withstand the elements. Some of these factors include wind loading, solar shading, ventilation and thermal performance.
Despite most curtain walls also being in a square or rectangular formation, supported by the aluminium frame, curtain walls can also take into consideration curves and sloped roofs, as shown in some of the recent development work across Yorkshire.
Clearview have in recent years applied curtain walling at many commercial buildings across the region, for many different purposes. Our list of clients includes supermarket giants Aldi, as well as other shopping giants, like Carpet Right and Marks & Spencer.
If you are considering adding curtain walling to your brand new build, then please speak to Clearview during the initial stages as lots of factors have to be considered.
