Curtain walling as an external wall solution is employed to achieve aesthetically high-end results and can be insulated to provide thermal efficiency and carbon savings. Traditionally fabricated from aluminium or stone and having fewer visible joins assists in establishing a seamless appearance.

 

Acting as a single unit benefits of using curtain walling include:

  • High resistance to moisture
  • Wind and structural shift resistance
  • Thermal efficiency
  • Faster installation than alternatives

 

Curtain Walling is a structurally independent and self-supporting system that can be easily maintained and removed without detriment to the overall buildings structure. The composition of the Window/Curtain Walling system spans multiple stories enabling speedy erection of the facade. This set-up enables a seamless finish achieving the most adventurous of architecture. With the envelope solution covering a large area, this is ideal for high-rise and high-end builds.

 

To provide the complete facade solution Build-Therm has also expanded its capabilities by providing Windows and Doors that can be fully integrated into the design of the build.

Considerations when thinking about Curtain Walling

 

Considerations when designing and installing windows, Doors and Curtain Walling is the energy efficiency. It is estimated that around 35% of heat lost from a building escapes through windows alone. In addition to this throughout the summer months, there is an increase in bills due to the necessity to cool down the building. To predict and combat this we need to look at the U– Values & G – Values of these structures to select the required system.

 

What are U & G Values?

  • U-Value is the measure of how much heat escapes out via the windows, walls, and roof.
  • G-Value is a measure of how much solar heat (infrared radiation) is allowed in through a particular part of a building.

Curtain Wall and Window systems are fabricated off-site, offering a reduction in time on site and enabling quick delivery of projects. In addition, Build-Therm works with its strong extensive supply chain to ensure only high-quality and compliant materials are used. As a result, we guarantee outcomes with the highest quality of finishes.
