  3. 3. WHAT ARE CURTAIN WALLS? •Lightweight wall systems installed outside of building structure. •Designed to resist wind and rain. •Must also accommodate building drift and seismic movements •The name “curtain wall” derives from the idea that the wall is thin and “hangs” like a curtain on the structural frame

  7. 7. Classification of glass curtain wall systems Unitized systemsStick systems
  8. 8. Stick systems •The curtain wall is installed piece by piece at the site. •Thermal expansion and contraction of mullions are accommodated by expansion joints in mullions. •The system components are shop- fabricated and shipped. •Low shipping costs and also permits a greater degree of on-site adjustment as compared to the other systems. •Disadvantage - longer on-site assembly time and more on-site labor than the other systems. •Consists of framed wall units that are shop fabricated, preassembled, and generally pre glazed. •The units are designed so that the vertical and horizontal members in adjacent units interlock to form common mullions and rails. •Advantage - its greater degree of quality control resulting from shop fabrication. •Disadvantage - the greater shipping cost because of the added bulk from assembled units, the need of a greater degree of protection of units during Transportation, and a lower degree of field adjustment. Unitized system
