Aluminium curtain walling is perfect for any building aiming to become a local icon. Made by lightweight, recyclable and durable aluminium this strong facade can transform standard buildings into epic centre pieces on any street.
Benefits of Aluminium Curtain Walling
People choose curtain walling for it’s stunning aesthetics. However, curtain walling is also strong, thermally efficient, has enhanced fire safety features and helps keep out air and water.
Curtain Walling made with aluminium is more environmentally friendly than steel curtain walling. This is because aluminium itself is fully recyclable and can be used again and again.
Maximise Room lighting
With the floor to ceiling window style afforded with curtain walling you really get the most out of your space. Curtain walling really does offer the brightest and best natural lighting option for your building.
Enhanced Fire Safety
Aluminium curtain walling has little or no combustible elements on the building’s exterior. As such the outside building is extremely fire resistant. On top of this internal curtain walling can cause a break in the internal architecture which can help reduce the spread of fire, aiding safe evacuation.
One of our manufacturers, Schüco, also offer fire rated, bomb and blast resistant curtain walling.
If installed correctly, curtain walling demonstrates a strong thermal performance. Curtain walling can help your building achieve a higher BREEAM rating and a move towards a more energy efficient environment.
By letting in the maximum amount of natural light, curtain walling is the preference of architectures worldwide. These days when creating a building that aims to WOW passers-by curtain walling is the go to aesthetic feature. This is because it combines the striking grandeur of tall, imposing glass structures with the bright, airy interior of an open plan office that is flooded with natural lighting.
Typically, we think that glass is fragile. This is not the case with curtain walling. Curtain walling offers a strong walling solution by negating the effects of heat-based contraction and expansion, building sway and diversion of water.
Keeping out Air and Water
Curtain Walling keeps out air and water making it both the insulation and buffer on a building. Curtain walls give buildings a longer lease of life whilst being more affordable and easier to maintain.
