Curtain Walling

Aluminium curtain walling is a non-load bearing glazing system, the glazing being clad onto the building’s structure. Aluminium curtain walling involves constructing a grid of mullions and transoms to which the glazing is connected. Curtain walling then comprises an integral part of the building’s external fabric. Several issues are important in the design of a curtain walling system. These include:

  • weather resistance – air flow, water tightness & wind resistance.
  • acoustic specifications
  • thermal performance requirements

IDC Design Aluminium Systems To Meet Architects Specifications

We work with architects and other specifiers in designing architectural aluminium systems. The architect will give us the I and U values that the aluminium curtain walling must achieve. IDC will design the aluminium curtain walling system to meet those specifications for the thermal insulation and strength requirement of the curtain walling system.

Curtain walling systems are suitable for walls up to 12 metres high. Applications include shops, offices, industrial units, supermarkets, schools, hospitals, churches, doctors surgeries, fast food restaurants, retail parks, shopping centres and houses.
