This course is designed to expand understanding of basic aluminum glazing systems, specifically storefront, window wall, and curtain wall systems. After completing this course, learners will be able to effectively select the appropriate aluminum glazing system for projects in order to achieve the desired aesthetics while providing optimal performance.
Prefabrication has progressed from a condition born of necessity to a customizable manufacturing process that expedites timelines and provides a response to the current labor shortage. Prefabrication processes have addressed issues with environmental, supply chain, sustainability, and waste concerns.
Today, curtain wall and window wall systems are building components that can be prefabricated as a unitized system or put together on site as a stick system. Recognizing when to specify each can help to mitigate risk and delay, as well as contribute to a building’s overall aesthetic.
