What is curtain walling?

One of the great ways to reduce the carbon footprint of a building is to use curtain walling. This is a strategy where you switch out the presence of outer walls, which are generally made from bricks, concrete and other harmful materials, and switching them out for aluminium panels and glass.

Curtain walling is not only better for the environment and for faster construction but it also has many design and internal benefits. One of these benefits is the amount of light that is let into the building. This is great for both the obvious – a bright and open space – as well as heating up the building without having to use a lot of energy.
