Glass curtain walls can replace your existing solid walls to make an otherwise ordinary room into something spectacular. Aluminium glazed walls effortlessly blur the divide between in-and outside, allowing your living spaces to be filled with panoramic views and natural light. Alko aluminium curtain walling offers a range of aesthetical solutions, such as different styles of face caps from horizontal to vertical lining, to a more minimalistic look using structural glazing or clamping technologies. Alko also offers tailored solutions for those projects that require a specific architectural design for their aluminium facade..
Curtain wall is a term used to describe a building facade which does not carry any dead load from the building other than its own dead load, and one which transfers the horizontal loads (wind loads) that are incident upon it. These loads are transferred to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, wind forces acting on the building, seismic forces (usually only those imposed by the inertia of the curtain wall), and its own dead load forces.
