Curtain walls have gained a very solid reputation in the commercial construction industry. These efficient, lightweight exterior walls enable bolder design and broader architectural possibilities. But they offer even more advantages, in particular:
1. Curtain walls maximize the amount of natural light in a building. And with abundant natural light comes a better quality of life for occupants!
2. They also optimize a building’s interior space, adding 10 to 30 cm of additional area compared to conventional walls.
3. They are more durable than many other façade coverings. When well maintained, they can last for 50 years or more.
4. They offer increasingly good protection against air and water infiltration.
5. They are lighter than conventional walls, only weighing 20 to 30% of traditional construction weight. For this reason, architectural designs can be more flexible and creative.
To enjoy all of these benefits, a prefabricated curtain wall is the best choice. Epsylon is an expert on the topic, and can help you bring your vision to life.
