Curtain Wall Failures & Methods of Retrofit

Curtain wall failures are a common and often highly visible problem for commercial owners and managers. This presentation focuses on ways in which a curtain wall can fail, including air and water penetration, structural failures, and aesthetic degradation. From design and installation, to components reaching their design life-cycle, curtain walls fail for a variety of reasons. Practical examples are used to show these root causes, what could have been done to prevent them, and illustrate proper methods of detailing.
