The Curtainwall is typically seen as an aluminum-framed wall with a thin profile that is filled with thin stone, metal panels, or glass. This portion of the home is affixed to the building frame. The structure’s purpose is to separate the exterior and interior, but it’s not meant to be load-bearing. Testing will ensure that the installation has been done correctly for durability and safety.
Innovative Construction Solutions will provide testing at any point to check for air infiltration, water penetration, and structural load.
Technicians with the skills and expertise to perform these tests can be found here. Part of well-known luxury home builders, BCB Homes, we have the advantage of a deep well of knowledge. Our clients can be sure that the measurements, evaluations, and remediations that we perform will be done right from the beginning.
For the air filtration test, the technician will measure airflow from an airtight chamber on one side of the wall.
The water penetration test requires a pressure gradient created with high pressure on the exterior and then water sprayed equally from without.
Finally, the structural load test will simulate the pressures created by high winds with positive and negative pressures. Best practices include repeating the water penetration test to ensure that the pressure caused no issues.
Additional evaluations include a dynamic water penetration test, a seismic test, and a thermal cycling test.
