Title: When to use Storefront or Curtain Wall

(1) CEH / HSW

Course Summary:

This course takes a deep look at the differences between Storefront and Curtain Wall architectural aluminum framing systems. Here we show and describe the application intent for each system and illustrate how each is designed and how each performs. This clearly distinguishes between a project on which a storefront would perform and one on which a curtain wall is the correct options and it explains why. Design principles, performance and fabrication is all described to clearly show the distinctions of each system and clarify why it is critical for designers to match the right system to the right application.

  • Understand what a Storefront System is and how is it best utilized in a commercial project?
  • Understand what a Curtain Wall System is and how is it best utilized in a commercial project?
  • Identify the main Drivers that must be considered when deciding between Storefront or Curtain Wall?
