Aluminium Curtain Walling Practical & Multifunctional
October 6, 2011
For a dramatic and imposing visual impression there are not many installations more effective than aluminium glazed curtain walling. Designers and architects love the multi functional qualities of curtain walling not least its ability to create a striking facade to any structure. Architecturally pleasing curtain walling is designed with a unique ability to resist water and air infiltration. Natural sway induced by wind and siesmic forces can have an impact upon vulnerable or badly designed buildings. Curtain walling remains stable when faced with these elements and effects such as naturally occurring thermal expansion and contraction. The extensive glass features allow light to penetrate further into a building bringing a modern open feel even on dull days.
Aluminium due to its strength and versatility enables a myriad of individual shapes and styles to be considered assisting with the creative process. This is further helped by the application of a wide range of powder coated colour options The insulating properties of double glazed curtain walls cannot be under estimated as they let the light flood in while retaining heat and keeping cold air and noise out. This makes glazed aluminium curtain walling an incredibly eco-friendly product greatly reducing the carbon footprint of a structure. Aluminium as a material is infinitely recyclable and can preserve its characteristics for over 60 years.
