Curtain walls are visually stunning, they protect the building and they are a cost-effective option in the long term as they are energy efficient. They resist air and water filtration reducing your cost of heating, cooling, and lighting the building. Curtain walls can be designed and installed in large or small units, giving an amazing level of creativity to the building’s architecture, and creating unique exteriors that do not date.
Once you have decided that curtain wall facade is an ideal feature for your building, it is time to look at the materials you will use in the building project. Frames and mullions can be made of stainless steel or aluminium or even a combination of both. Both materials have excellent advantages. Specifically speaking, stainless steel and the laser fused sections of the steel can result in an extremely accurate fitting and perfectly square corners, as well as smooth, elegant lines and watertight seals. Stainless steel is easy to use in custom designs, doesn’t rust prematurely, lasts well against the elements and is a sustainable material that can be recycled and repurposed. Aluminium curtain wall is also a favorite with architects and designers for excellent durability due to its anti-corrosive nature. Furthermore, aluminium adds flexibility to the frame, adding to the curtain wall’s function as a shock absorber against heavy winds. The metal has the dual benefit of being extremely strong yet lightweight at the same time, making it easier to use in the construction process.
Benefits of Using Aluminium for Curtain Walling Include:
• 100% recyclable
• Great insulation properties
• It does not burn and is non-combustible (or only at 650 °C, and even then, does not produce harmful gases.)
• It is very cost effective, in production, transport and installation
• It does not need regular replacing
In conclusion, an integrated design, with thoughtful choices of materials (and even manufacturing and installation approaches), can not only manage the expense of the curtain wall, but sometimes also the overall project cost by shortening the required time onsite and other factors. In a word, a custom curtain wall specification is a true team effort, with suppliers, installers, and even surrounding trades contributing to its success.
