Hidden frame glass curtain walls are a popular option for those that want to avoid the hassle of having to install a complicated and expensive window or door system. It’s not only accessible, but it also looks great in any decor.
A hidden frame glass curtain wall can be a beautiful and sleek addition to any room. It can be customized to fit any style, and it is a great way to add privacy while still allowing light and airflow into the room.
Why is it hidden?
A hidden frame glass curtain wall is typically used in commercial and industrial settings because it provides privacy while still allowing natural light to enter. The curtain wall is made up of several panels that are hinged along the top and bottom so that they can be pulled open to allow entry or exit.
Construction of a Hidden Frame Glass Curtain Wall
When creating a hidden frame glass curtain wall, the length of time it takes to complete the project can vary depending on the skill level of the contractor and the complexity of the installation. However, in general, a hidden frame glass curtain wall can take between two and four days to install.
The first step in installing a hidden frame glass curtain wall is to measure the space that will be covered by the curtain. Next, determine how many panels will be needed for the desired width and height of the curtain. The number of panels required will then be multiplied by the width and height of each panel, to create a total number of panels required. Finally, add these numbers together to get a total amount for each panel.
Next, remove any existing walls or doors from the space that will be covered by the curtain. This will allow for easier access to the framing members and screws that will be used in installing the hidden frame glass curtain wall. Once all existing walls and doors have been removed, mark out where each framing member will go using a pencil or a laser pointer.
Lastly, drill holes into each marked framing member using a drill bit that is slightly larger than the screws that will be used in installing the curtain!
