A vertical section for a curtain wall glazing system is a technical drawing that shows a cross-sectional view of the curtain wall as if it had been sliced vertically from top to bottom.
The section typically shows the various components of the curtain wall system, including the framing members, the glazing panels, and any sealant or gasket materials that are used to weatherproof the system.
The section might also show details such as the connections between the framing members and the building structure, and the way that the glazing panels are attached to the framing. It is used for design and construction purposes for making sure all parts will properly fit and work together.
