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.
