Title: When to use Storefront or Curtain Wall
(1) CEH / HSW
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.
