Curtain Wall Details

Postby asnaseer » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:59 am

Hi all,

Where might one find detail drawings of curtain walls? I am trying to identify locations of fireproofing, additional structure, etc within a curtain wall system.

I've seen people recommend AGS and BCI; however, I can't seem to locate many details in either. Associating page/section numbers to references would be extremely helpful.

According to BCI,"curtain wall required size and strength is determined by the load it must carry". If the designer wanted to reduce the size of the curtain frame,
would you say the best way to this is to transfer the load back to floor structure or intermediate framing?

When would I choose to transfer the load back to the intermediate frame instead of the floor slab?
