Glass Curtain Walling
Glass curtain walling and glass curtain glazing are both lightweight aluminum-framed facades that house either glass or metal panels. At Bracknell Glazing we supply, install and undertake a comprehensive range of remedial works. Curtain walling is often part of a building envelope or is part of wall system compositions. Each glazing system requires careful integration with the other adjacent structural elements such as wall claddings, roofs, and walls. We can work on internal and external glass walling projects. Our glass walling systems are highly adaptable and enhance your building with practical and aesthetic benefits.
Our facades are customisable, they look great whilst providing efficient energy efficiencies, drainage and ventilation solutions. Over the years we have installed glass walling solutions at some of the UK’s iconic and prestigious buildings.
Remedial and refurbishments to glass walling is a cost effective alternative to full replacement of glass wall curtains. Aluminium framed glass wall systems are a feature of modern architecture which date back to the 1930’s. These systems were accelerated by the availability of inexpensive aluminum following Word War II, which led to widespread popularity and adoption. Aged walling systems are susceptible to whole host of reasons that render them in need of remedial repair. Typical issues surrounding remedial glazing repairs include defective and loose gaskets, cracked window, blown units, water ingress, damaged fixings and poorly performing spandrel (the almost triangular space between one side of the outer curve of an arch, a wall, and the ceiling or framework; the space between the shoulders of adjoining arches and the ceilings) panels. When left unattended, these can manifest and become a health and safety hazard for staff, visitors and customers.
Glass curtain walls are not exclusive to commercial applications. They also provide structural walling solutions for residential properties
Developed to create remarkable yet functional facades, curtain glass wailing provides architects with the flexibility to create very high performing solutions. The results are visually exciting walls, both externally and internally. From simple but dramatic entrances to sheer high rise glass walls that incorporate complex shapes and uninterrupted views, curtain walling systems give architects an opportunity to create stunning envelopes.
We offer some of the most inclusive curtain walling systems that are available on the market. Whatever design or style you want, we will be able to supply and install these for you, including glazing to high level buildings.
Our teams of glazing experts have many years of experience with different curtain walling projects from low to high rise buildings, pressure plated, structurally bonded, exposed and faceted and confined structures. As an established curtain walling company, we have worked with new buildings and have also added glass facades to existing buildings as part of remedial refurbishment; you can count on us to handle your curtain glass walling needs professionally, efficiently and effectively.
Curtain walling can enhanced the thermal performance of the structure and achieve low U values that are in accordance with building regulations. Your expert technicians here at Bracknell Glazing will advise you on the right system as well as glazing that you can use to achieve your desired thermal performance.
The curtain wall system also offers the ability to carry a variety of heavyweights and glass thickness. This not only enables high thermal value that you can get from triple glazing but will also allow you to incorporate heavy acoustic laminates. This will help you achieve that high performing acoustic façade that can be used in heavy traffic areas like busy roads, near airports and railway lines.
