What Is Aluminium Curtain Walling?

Aluminium curtain walling is an ideal choice when it comes to designing homes with expansive glass features. Although commonly used in commercial buildings, Hive Architectural provides custom curtain walling systems for residential properties.

A curtain wall system is an architectural feature used to cover the exterior of a building. It consists of a metal frame, called a mullion, which supports lightweight materials such as glass, metal panels or thin stone. This system not only enhances the visual appeal of the building but also provides protection and insulation benefits.

Benefits of Curtain Wall Systems

Protection Meets Design

Curtain walling serves a dual purpose – it acts as a protective barrier against severe weather conditions, keeping the interior safe and comfortable. From an architectural perspective, these systems serve as a visual boundary between the interior and exterior spaces of the building.

Luxurious Aesthetic

Floor-to-ceiling glazed aluminium curtain walling offers significant advantages for the exteriors of buildings. By using large glass panels that span multiple floors, a curtain wall system provides a luxurious and visually striking element to large homes. They make a bold statement and become a standout feature in architectural design.

More Natural Light

By incorporating insulating large glass panels, you can maximise the amount of natural light entering your home. Natural lighting makes for a brighter and more vibrant environment.

Thermal Insulation

Aluminium curtain walling is a smart choice for your building façade. It consists of different types of glass, including solar control, transparent, translucent or opaque glass. This combination helps to regulate heat effectively and prevents the accumulation of excessive heat within the curtain wall system. The feature not only helps to prevent the greenhouse effect but also maintains a comfortable indoor environment for occupants.

Safety and Security

Aluminium curtain walling systems are meticulously designed to handle a range of challenges. They’re built to resist air and water infiltration, withstand wind-induced sway, combat seismic forces and support the weight of the structure itself. This is why they are typically seen in high-rise buildings.

Aluminium Curtain Walling For Your Home

Curtain walling systems have been transformed by the introduction of thinner, aluminium profiles. This innovation has greatly increased their versatility, making them suitable for buildings of all sizes. Whether it’s a residential or commercial property, you can find both horizontal and vertical curtain walling options in our extensive range.
