Glass Curtain Walls
The most common glazing type is glass. Glass curtain walls are an outer covering of a building where the outer walls are non-structural. They are used to keep weather out. These curtain walls differ from storefront systems because they typically span several floors.
You can usually find glass curtain walls on tall buildings. They are also thicker and taller than storefront walls. A glass curtain wall can be 25 feet tall or higher.

Skies the Limit with Glass Curtain Walls
Although a glass curtain wall may be more expensive, it has no maximum height restrictions. Window walls or storefronts will max out at approximately 14 feet.
Glass curtain walls can be used as both interior and exterior glazing applications. Each offers different advantages. Interior systems require a specific design per their application and they allow for glass installation into the curtain wall openings from the interior of the building. Exterior glazing systems work well for low rise construction projects.
Prime Architectural can help you determine which system works best for your commercial or residential building. Some systems include drains and help resist water infiltration. There is also a rain screen system which will help resist air and water infiltration. These systems also do a great job of transferring wind loads. Glass curtain walls also come in different thicknesses.
