About Curtain wall, metal, installation

The installation of facades and fašade elements is one of the more complex operations on a construction site. It requires a range of skills and knowledge yet has not been recognised as a particular skill or trade. Fašade failure, particularly water leakage, is the most common cause of failure in new buildings.

This handbook brings together advice on installation of curtain walling including all the major components: frames, gaskets, sealants, finishes, glass and fixings. It is based on experience gained by CWCT in setting up training centres for installers and in training main contractors' site supervisors. The book explains why things should be done and highlights those things that are most critical to the success of curtain wall and window installation.
