Abstract: The primary factors most designers consider when selecting window and curtain wall systems for their projects tend to involve cost, appearance, and energy efficiency. However, other considerations - such as weatherproofing, performance, and durability - can also be critical. Understanding material options, along with aspects like performance data and perimeter detailing are crucial.
