Curtain Walling in Homes

Curtain walling has been taken from commercial properties and is now being included in many new build domestic properties to enhance the natural light offerings and provide stunning homes.

What is curtain walling?

According to standards, curtain walling is: “An external building facade produced with framing made mainly of metal, timber or PVC-U, usually consisting of vertical and horizontal structural members, connected together and anchored to the supporting structure of the building, which provides, by itself or in conjunction with the building construction, all the normal functions of an external wall, but does not contribute to the load bearing characteristics of the building structure.” – Aluminium Trade Supply

Why is it good?

Curtain Walling is non-structural so it has for a number of years been keeping down construction costs. It also has the huge advantage that is brings in much more natural light than in a typical brick building with structurally obligating openings.

Use in domestic property

Commercial properties are synonymous with curtain walling, but new designers have been using curtain walling in apartment buildings for the last few years. These walls stem multiple floors and provide greater visual appeal to the buildings.

Individually, some homes that now appear on grand designs are also featuring curtain walls. This is because it provides the opportunity to fill a room with lots of natural light as well as maximising any views which your home may look out to.

Curtain walling does not need to be made of just panes of glass either. Designs can include bi-folding doors, sliding doors, windows and much more so that you can get more from the feature.
