Curtain Wall Hoisting
Curtain wall Hoisting are non-structural cladding systems for the external walls of buildings. They are generally associated with large, multi-storey buildings.
Curtain walls separate the interior from the exterior, but only support their own weight and the loads imposed on them (such as wind loads, seismic loads, and so on) which they transfer back to the primary structure of the building. This is in contrast to many forms of traditional construction in which the external walls are a fundamental part of the primary structure of the building.
Typically curtain wall Hoisting comprise a lightweight aluminium frame onto which glazed or opaque infill panels can be fixed. These infill panels are often described as 'glazing' whether or not they are made of glass.
