A luxury Sea Point Home with a modern glass façade. We were called in to replace a faulty, leaking curtain wall system. The curtain wall system is an outer covering of a building in which the outer walls are non-structural. As the curtain wall is non-structural, it can be made of lightweight materials. The curtain wall façade does not carry any structural load from the building other than its own dead load weight.

This CWS was custom designed using aluminum framing members, and clad with massive glass infill panels, to span multiple floors, taking into consideration design requirements such as: thermal expansion and contraction; building sway and movement; water diversion; and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling, and lighting in the building.
