The performance of the window-wall interface has a significant effect on overall building enclosure system performance. Problems typically occur from improper design or construction practices.
Understanding the options for these critical termination and transition details, proper specification and QC testing are key to producing a high performance building enclosure.
This presentation will describe the methods of making this critical transition, how to specify them and detail the testing which should be completed. A case study will be included.
- Understand the importance of proper window-wall connection selection
- Understand the considerations for each type of connection as well as benefits and limitations
- Be able to specify proper window-wall connections
- Understand the QA and QC tests and procedures associated with window-wall connections
