RP Technik Curtain wall systems: Functionality meets Transparency

Why choose steel?

  • Three times the wind load capacity of a standard aluminum curtain wall

  • Three times the modulus of elasticity of aluminum, allowing for smaller profiles

  • Superior thermal performance and reduced thermal expansion than aluminum

  • Significantly larger spans of glazing than traditional aluminum systems

  • Water-tight curtain wall framing joints with no visible weld bead

  • Low maintenance system

Given steel’s strength, it seems like the natural material of choice to support glazed curtain walls. However, aluminium has been dominant since the mid-1900s outperforming steel with its lightweight, versatile and corrosion-resistant properties. 

Today, due to developments in manufacturing processes, steel framing is reemerging as a high-performance material in glazed curtain walls. It surpasses traditional aluminum framing systems in terms of free span size, narrow sightlines and design flexibility
