As an alternative to standard aluminum storefront systems, Reveal presents the timber curtain wall system with wood interior. This system is ideal for applications where one desires a structural window wall with the warmth and richness of wood on the interior, such as high-end residential, boutique retail, or hospitality projects, with the durability and low-maintenance of exterior aluminum caps (wood caps also available).
When viewed from the exterior, the curtain wall system from Reveal Windows & Doors resembles typical aluminum storefront, with nearly unlimited configurations and multiple aluminum and wood cap options. The wood interior can be milled out of any species, and is engineered according to the structural and performance needs of the opening. Testing data is available upon request.
Once the framework of the curtain wall is established, the openings can be glazed with nearly any fixed or operable units, including casements, awnings, swing doors, and sliding doors. The openings can also be glazed with fixed exterior aluminum/interior wood panels.
Multiple installation options exist for curtain walls to span multiple stories and incorporate into any building system, and test data is available to show the structural and performance characteristics of the curtain wall. All systems can be sold with third-party engineering and installation, to ensure proper performance and provide a turn-key solution.
Reveal is proud to be the U.S. Sales Partner for RAICO timber curtain wall systems:
