What is a curtain wall?
A curtain wall is an exterior building wall which carries no roof or floor loads. It consists mainly or entirely of metal or a combination of metal, glass and other surfacing / cladding materials supported by a metal framework. There are two basic types of curtain wall:
- Custom – The curtain wall is designed specifically for one project, using unique parts, components, and details specially-made for this purpose;
- Standard – The curtain wall is primarily made up of parts, components, and details standardized by the manufacturer and assembled in accordance with either the architect’s design or the manufacturer’s stock patterns and standard instructions.
