Curtain walls, based on skeleton frame construction and imaginative designs, can provide large glazed areas that can dominate a façade. When these are not properly designed or specified there can be consequences in the construction that are unwanted.

During this webinar, we will take a look at the primary areas of content outlined in the Curtain Wall Manual (published June 2019) to demonstrate how designers, specifiers, contractors and others can benefit from understanding its contents. The areas covered by the Curtain Wall Manual include:

  • Curtain Wall System Types
  • Design Considerations
  • Architectural Detailing Guidelines
  • Building Tolerances
  • Guide Specifications
  • Material Properties
  • Testing
  • Installation
