Course Description:

Aluminum has often been the material of choice for architectural framing systems such as storefronts, curtain walls and window and door systems.  Aluminum has performance and structural limitations however, and many innovative architectural designs now favor the use of steel framing systems.

  • Gain an understanding of the history of curtain wall in building design        
  • Identify the advantages of steel in modern curtain wall systems        
  • Identify different types of steel curtain wall systems        
  • Learn how steel curtain wall systems can be used to maximize natural light in buildings while allowing design creativity
