What is Curtain Walling?

A curtain wall system is an external building envelope. It is designed to resist air and water infiltration while supporting its weight. Curtain wall can withstand the forces of wind and seismic activity without transferring these forces to the building structure. In the UK, commercial and high-rise buildings use curtain walling to create a pleasing facade and to protect against the elements.

The curtain wall system typically comprises a metal frame fitted to the building’s structure. This frame holds glass or other cladding materials, with metal spacers separating the glass panels. It’s sealed by gaskets or sealants to prevent air and water infiltration. Curtain walling may also include insulation, sunshades, and other components. This will enhance energy efficiency and reduce the effects of solar radiation.

Curtain wall systems are popular due to their versatility and easy installation. They also create visually striking facades. These systems offer numerous benefits, including improved energy efficiency, natural light penetration, and reduced noise transmission. However, it’s essential to note that experienced professionals should install to ensure safety and performance.

Unitised Curtain Walling

These curtain wall systems are fabricated, assembled and glazed within a controlled environment in state-of-the-art facilities around the UK.

Unitised curtain wall, which enhances both the appearance and energy efficiency of buildings, is a modern architectural solution. Cladding London excels in providing this cutting-edge system. We provide clients with pre-made panels that are assembled off-site and then smoothly integrated into the building’s exterior. This approach reduces on-site installation time and minimises disruptions, making it an excellent choice for large commercial projects.

Our expertise ensures a precise fit and finish, and the unitised system’s design promotes energy savings and thermal insulation.

At Cladding London, we always strive to work with local suppliers. This approach offers better control and allows for pre-construction before setting up the building structure.

Stick Curtain Wall Systems:

These curtain wall systems present a classic and adaptable approach to exterior building cladding. In this method, construction teams assemble the curtain wall on-site. This provides flexibility to accommodate various designs.

Key Features:

Flexibility: Stick-built systems offer high flexibility. They allow customisation to meet the design needs of each building. Architects can specify the exact size, shape, and positioning of mullions, transoms, and glazing.

Adaptability: They work well for both refurbishment and new construction projects. Stick curtain walls can be adjusted to fit the existing structure, making them suitable for upgrading older buildings.

Cost-Effective: These systems are often more budget-friendly than some other curtain wall formats. The materials are readily available and easier to transport and handle, reducing overall costs.

Ease of Repairs: If a part of the curtain wall system gets damaged, construction teams can replace or refurbish it more easily in a stick-built system compared to unitised or other more pre-fabricated formats.

Curtain Walling Installation Process:

The assembly process for stick-built curtain walls involves construction teams installing mullions and transoms onto the building’s structure. This is followed by attaching the glazing or panels. Precise craftsmanship is necessary to ensure a watertight, structurally sound, and visually appealing result.

While stick curtain wall systems offer numerous advantages, they do require more on-site labour. As a result, it requires longer installation timelines compared to unitised systems. Additionally, weather conditions and other external factors can influence the installation schedule.
