They help in making the curtain walling well insulated. They not only provide insulation but also make for a second line of defence against water infiltration.
Due to the presence of glazing and other features, the curtain walling looks pleasant and appealing to the eyes. Steel stiffeners which have been inserted in the hollow aluminum frame help in the reduction of frame depth.
