Curtain wall glazing is a type of building façade system that consists of a framework of aluminum or steel mullions and transoms that support glass or other infill panels.
The system is typically non-structural and is attached to the building’s structure with anchors. Curtain wall systems can be designed to be either stick-built or unitized, with the latter being factory-assembled and then installed on site.
This type of system is commonly used in high-rise buildings, office buildings, and other commercial structures to provide natural light and a modern aesthetic.
