Curtain Walling Ð A Background

Curtain walling is becoming an ever popular addition to homes across the UK. Whether they are used as the main focal point of the building or they are just an additional feature, they have some great benefits.

Here at Clear View, we have been involved in adding curtain walling to many projects, such as the old people’s home in Manchester, and also wrote an article about how it is becoming a must have on more newer proprieties.

But where has curtain walling originated form and why it is so popular. Below our engineers look at some of the background and explain some of the reasons they have become the next big architectural development, seen in most new builds.

By name, a curtain walling system is an outer covering on a building, usually added to a non structural wall. This has however changed and sometimes curtain walling is built into the structural part of a building.

For non structural components, it can be made of lightweight material which reduces costs. The most common type of curtain walling is with glass and this provides a huge advantage in that it lets large amounts of light into the building. This can dramatically reduce any heating costs and if you work in an office block, can help to improve natural working conditions, improving morale. Glass is also very aesthetically pleasing and adds character to any building.

Typically curtain wall systems are designed with extruded aluminium members, although the first ones were actually made out of steel. At Clear View our systems used the most up-to date and technologically advanced aluminium frames and all our glassing is high efficiency glass.

These are just a few reasons why curtain walling is becoming ever popular in commercial buildings, as well as blocks of high rise flats. If your company is thinking about building a new office and would like to discuss how curtain walling could be used please do not hesitate to speak to one of our team.
