9 Benefits of Interior Glass Curtain Wall Systems

Curtain Wall System

Interior glass curtain wall systems are based on the idea of structural facades and exterior curtain walls. Using vertical aluminum mullions, a glass curtain wall system provides a flexible and modular separation of space. Since it bears no structural weight, it can be placed exactly where you need it, providing a host of benefits.

Benefits of Interior Glass Curtain Wall Systems

The many benefits of interior glass curtain wall systems make them a perfect choice to separate interior spaces, increase elegant aesthetics, create sound privacy, and more.

1. Purposeful Partitions With Glass Curtain Wall System

Purposeful Partitions With Glass Curtain Wall System

In the Iowa School of Music, glazed curtain walls are used to partition the library from the hallway. These purposefully positioned partitions allow students walking by to see the activity happening in the music library. The Elevare™ Mullion High Wall System allows for the integration of LCD, pivot, sliding, or hinged doors that continue the transparency throughout the entire system. This creates a welcoming environment regardless of the separation of spaces. 

2. Highly Customizable

A curtain wall system isn’t weight bearing, so it is an incredibly flexible and functional design element. By nature of its construction, it can be erected exactly where it is needed. Its ease of installation makes it the perfect choice to separate interior spaces. 

The versatility of an interior aluminum curtain wall system makes it suitable for a wide variety of needs and environments. They also allow for a wide spectrum of combinations and configurations.

3. Contemporary Aesthetic

Clean lines and unobstructed views are hallmarks of contemporary design. Glass curtain wall systems seamlessly integrate into this style. The glass allows for a view into the space while still keeping areas separate where needed.

The support components are compatible with wood, glass, and poly-carbonate materials, making it possible for commercial curtain walls to fit with the existing aesthetic.

4. Isolate Noise

Installing an interior glass curtain wall system increases the amount of sound privacy in a space. This keeps meetings and conversations private without completely obstructing views into the outer areas in the office. 

High wall systems that reach 13’ or higher are perfect for large spaces where erecting a traditional wall would create a substantial inconvenience. Large rooms are notoriously difficult areas in which to manage noise, but interior curtain walls make it a much easier task.

5. Increase Natural Light

Allowing natural light into interior spaces has numerous benefits. Most notable are greater workplace morale and productivity, reduced rates of depression and seasonal affective disorder, and increased energy.

According to a survey published in the Harvard Business Review, “47% of employees admit they feel tired or very tired from the absence of natural light or a window at their office.” Incorporating glazed curtain walls into an office, school, or store setting increases the availability of interior light from exterior windows, and everyone benefits.

6. Accommodate a Large Space

Accommodate a Large Space With Glass Curtain Wall

Large spaces can be difficult to design, but in areas 13’ and higher, aluminum curtain wall systems like Avanti’s Elevare™ Point Support Single Glazed High Wall System, can make the process much easier. All of the perimeters are fastened to solid walls, creating a supported curtain wall panel that can break up large spaces and create separate work areas.  

7. COVID-19 Safety With Glass Curtain Wall

Today’s workplace has changed dramatically in the last year. The risk of contracting COVID-19 has caused many offices to restructure their systems, creating more space between employees and erecting partitions to reduce the transmission of germs.

Glazed aluminum curtain walls are a great solution to the changing needs of your workplace. They are not structural components, so they can be installed where they are needed. The Elevare™ Mullion High Wall System doesn’t make holes in the main support structure means they can be removed, reconfigured, or relocated when necessary. When the world returns to normal, they can be recycled or put to use elsewhere.

8. Draw Customers to Your Store

9. Make Small Spaces Seem Larger

Imagine being inside this small, narrow dining area without the interior glass curtain wall. It would feel too close and isolated. However,  with the integration of the glass, you’re able to dine with a view. Whether it’s a break room, a small cafe inside a hospital, or a coffee shop in a school building, a glass curtain wall makes dining an experience to be enjoyed rather than just a meal to rush through on your way to the next thing.
