Curtain Walls - Product Description
Originally built of stone to protect medieval castles, curtain walls are today an ingenious combination of extruded aluminum and glass, designed to combine aesthetics, natural light and thermal comfort for the building occupants.
Unicel Architectural manufactures curtain wall systems that can be adapted to a wide array of facades, including those with punched openings and strip windows. To complement the curtain wall, skylights and various glazing systems can also be delivered to match the building envelope.
Made of aluminum profiles with concealed fasteners, our curtain walls feature a rain-screen system that provides proper drainage and ventilation. Thanks to the polyshim sealing joint, the structures are hermetically shielded against air and vapor infiltration. Depending on the project’s requirements (thermal efficiency, use of daylight, thermal expansion and contraction, building movement, water diversion etc), Unicel has the ability and knowledge to develop curtain wall structures that meet the highest standards of building efficiency and aesthetics.
