Curtain Wall System
Ventana’s curtain wall system is a high-performing system and as all curtain wall systems, it runs outside of the slab and typically attached to the structure with embeds. Our curtain wall system is 4-sided structurally glazed and assembled in a plant for superior performance. The units are fabricated in a controlled, dust-free environment, the structurally glazed system provides an excellent air and water seal, and the majority of the quality control is performed in the plant. Further, all our systems have a dual line of defense and are based on the rainscreen principle. On the exterior, there is a rainscreen gaskets that blocks most of the water from entering the system. Behind the rainscreen gasket, there is a 40mm deep rainscreen cavity. The rainscreen cavity is a wet area and serves to pressure equalize the system to hinder air and water from being pulled back into the system. Lastly, behind the rainscreen cavity, there is a final line of defense – the air seal gasket. Due to the deep rainscreen cavity, Ventana can attach features such as fins and sunshades to our system without penetrating the final line of defense.
