It is common to find windows adorning mid-rise and high-rise buildings. From outsider people‘s perspectives, these buildings are covered in glass windows rather than other standard building materials.

In the industry, this design feature is often referred to as a curtain wall or window wall. Sometimes professionals use these terms interchangeably. However, there are some subtle but important differences between the two terms.

Curtain walls require fire protection between floors and may have noise transmission issues. In addition, curtain walls are relatively costly compared to traditional floor-to-ceiling windows. But curtain well let more sunshine in, which is more popular in nowadays. Light and warm enviroment bring us more happiness and comfort.

Window walls are located between floors and are fixed to sills and tops. They are installed inside the building and extend to the exterior of the building. They typically span no more than 12 feet from floor to floor and are not load bearing.

Window walls are prefabricated and ready to install. Since the window walls are located between floor slabs, they do not require fire protection. In addition, noise transmission is not a major problem. Window walls are an economical and stylish option for obtaining a ground-to-roof window appearance without costly or operational problems.
