Creative Solutions for Challenging Curtain Wall Conditions

November 29, 2013
Publication: RCI Building Envelope Technology Symposium 2013

Abstract: The speakers will discuss lessons learned from challenging detail conditions encountered during glass-and-metal curtain wall projects. Topics will include perimeter flashing, beam penetrations, canopies, inside and outside corners, parapet terminations, and unusual anchorage conditions. Examples of each detail condition will be discussed. The presenters will offer key considerations for each detail, including structural integrity, weatherproofing, corrosion resistance, and aesthetic appearance.  Stick-built and unitized curtain wall systems will be covered.
