Professionally Designed & Installed Curtain Walling
One of the main reasons for the popularity of aluminium curtain walling is its inherent structural strength. This along with its excellent thermal properties makes it ideal for use in commercial and industrial applications. Curtain walling is a non load bearing glazing system which is clad onto a buildings external structure, giving a functional and attractive solution. Good quality curtain walling serves several purposes such as weather protection, noise pollution limitation and insulation.
