Curtain walls
Curtain walls are a form of external lightweight cladding attached to a framed structure forming a complete envelope or sheath around the structural frame. They are non-load-bearing claddings which have to support only their own dead weight and any imposed wind loadings which are transferred to the structural frame through connectors which are usually positioned at floor levels.

The primary objectives of using curtain walling systems are:

1. Provide an enclosure to the structure which will give the necessary protection against the elements.
2. Make use of dry construction methods.
3. Impose onto the structural frame the minimum load in the form of claddings.
4. Exploit an architectural feature.
