What Are The Benefits Of Curtain Walling?

Curtain walling has all kinds of benefits to improve the look and feel of a building. If you’re looking to add style and light to a previously neglected or outdated property, then this could be the cladding for you.

What Is Curtain Walling?

Curtain Walling is usually identified by its many large windows, usually seen on the face of a commercial building. Aluminium and glass are combined to create a cladding like effect. There are many benefits to this style, not only for looks but for practicality and cost reasons too. Let’s explore the different advantages.

Curtain Walling Systems: What Are The Advantages?

When it comes to aesthetics, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This style of cladding can add a sleek and modern finish to the face of your building. However, if you have an old property or a smaller residential property, then perhaps this cladding isn’t appropriate.

There are four major aspects of curtain walling that can be seen as advantages over other types of cladding.

The Cost Of Curtain Walling

This style can save you money in several ways. Firstly, there are no structural changes needed to install this type of cladding because it is entirely self-supporting. Therefore, no structural components of your building are affected during installation.

Secondly, it’s a common misconception that glass and aluminium do not insulate like other classic materials. This is no longer true. In fact, recent changes in technology have resulted in a slightly better result than more traditional cladding.

Lastly, aluminium and glass are extremely durable, lasting far longer than timber and plastic products. This means that not only do you save on heating long term, you also save on maintenance too.


Another great benefit of this curtain walling is the rigorous testing that’s required when it comes to fire safety, weather protection and insulation standards. If you choose to clad your property like this, then you can rest assured that the product is of high quality.


Unlike other cladding materials like timber, it’s easy to clean aluminium and glass. Problems such a staining and grime are not an issue with curtain walling. If you use a professional to clean your property it will save you plenty of time. Should you opt to clean it yourself, you’ll be saving pennies.
