Building Envelope Facades

Win-Con is a Building Envelope Contractor specializing in the design, manufacturing and installation of Curtain Wall building envelope facades. The term “Curtain Wall” typically refers to an aluminum-framed wall system containing in-fills of glass, metal panels, thin stone or a combination thereof. The Curtain Wall system “hangs” from anchor clips attached to the face or top of each floor slab allowing it to by-pass the floor slabs essentially “draping” the building structure with a continuous building envelope enclosure.

Special attention to detail is required on such projects to ensure proper continuity between the adjacent facade systems allowing each to perform properly without compromising the overall performance of the building envelope’s ability to resist air and water infiltration and to maintain a thermal barrier between inside and out.
