SRL Ltd is one of Manchester’s premier curtain walling manufacturers. We manufacture top quality curtain walling systems at the very best prices.
Why choose curtain walling?
Curtain walling systems are outer coverings for buildings in which the outer walls are non-structural. Therefore they can be manufactured from lightweight materials, like aluminium, thus reducing construction costs. When glass is used as the curtain wall the added advantage is that natural light can penetrate deeper into the building. The curtain wall facade only carries its own weight, and no dead-load weight from the building itself. The wall transfers horizontal wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is by design able to resist air and water infiltration, sway, induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building and its own dead load weight forces.
Curtain walling systems are typically designed with extruded aluminium members. The aluminium frame is typically in-filled with glass, which allows in large amounts of natural light creating a feeling of space and providing the perfect interface with the outside world whilst maintaining the safety, security and comfort levels of the building’s internal environment for the benefit of its occupants. Curtain walls differ from store front systems in that they are designed to span multiple floors, and take into consideration design requirements such as thermal expansion and contraction, building sway and movement, water diversion and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling and lighting in the building.
SRL curtain walling systems offer low or high-rise capability with the highest set of specifications that will stand the test of time:

SRL Ltd specialises in aluminium curtain wall systems, and uses Senior aluminium curtain wall systems, ranging from 75mm to 250mm deep (front to back), with single-glazed or double-glazed options, Senior SCW + SF52, Comar 6EFT and Schueco curtain wall systems. We can also install insulated panels within the curtain wall: this system is generally used on larger areas of glazing and the height and width is limited.
