Committed to Doing Our Best for Our Customers
With a focus on commercial construction, we have developed the expertise to produce a storefront that goes above and beyond traditional one-story options. Kensington Glass is equally skilled in designing and installing curtain wall solutions for new construction or renewing an existing structure for one or more stories. We recommend, design, and install curtain wall systems that meet your architectural and structural requirements.
We Offer Design Options
A curtain wall transforms your building with the external addition of beautiful glass. Because of the flexibility we gain with aluminum and glass construction, you have a wide range of options.
- All-glass exterior looks with the aluminum structure “hidden” inside
- Reflective glass coatings to prevent passersby from looking inside
- Segmented, curved, arched, or flat walls based on your specifications
Curtain Wall Facts
What steps do you take to meet wind load codes?
When we build curtain wall we need them to be beautiful and safe. We work closely with design and construction specialists who determine the relevant wind load codes and advise us on appropriate construction guidelines. As a Connecticut contractor, we comply with all permit, inspection, safety, and construction requirements as outlined by the Division of Construction Services.
Consultative Design & Construction
Constructing a multi-story glass and aluminum structure is a far more complex process than building a single-story storefront enhancement. We often complete our own project shop drawings, but as we work to build your curtain wall, we understand that it’s crucial to work closely with other design and construction specialists. When a design professional is the best option for planning your curtain wall, we consult with an architect throughout the design process.
Multi-story curtain wall must comply with state and local building codes. It must also have the strength to withstand a wide range of naturally occurring circumstances. To accomplish these goals, we work with a structural engineer on critical factors such as insulation and wind load.
