Curtain Wall Insulation
Curtain wall insulation is a critical component in perimeter fire containment made of varying densities of mineral wool. Todays building requirements and desire for floor to ceiling glass demand a lot of attention to this element of a firestopping system. This detail is often overlooked or misunderstood and if installed incorrectly renders the entire firestopping system incapable of withstanding the required hourly rating. If not addressed early and often in the construction process, the opportunity for delays in construction and cost overruns around this detail are significant and all too common.
