Glass Store Fronts
The architectural design requirements of storefronts and building facades vary. Destin Glass works with each architect to determine which finishes the best suit the versatility and aesthetic needs of each project.
The ultimate objective is to achieve both beauty and durability. Anodized finishes accomplish both of these, offering many years of maintenance-free durability and are available for both front and center load, as well as curtain wall systems.
When brighter colors are called for, powder-coated metal finishes offer more brilliant color options and are stronger than paint. Whether the project calls for traditional paint, powder coating or anodizing, custom colors can easily be created, bringing the most imaginative architectural designs to life.
Today’s standard for interior storefront design has become heavy glass, frameless mall fronts. Destin Glass offers a variety of extrusion designs and finishes to accent mall storefronts.
Destin Glass also offers interior sliding mall front doors which provide after-hour security and can be slid into pockets for unobstructed entry.
We supply all types of finishes from stainless steel, brass, aluminum, painted, and custom cladding, with a wide range of products for every application – large or small, interior or exterior.
We also offer a wide range of glazing & metal finishes which gives us the most versatility to customize heavy glass work in the mall front industry.
Curtain walls differ from store-front systems. They are designed to span multiple floors, taking into consideration design requirements such as thermal expansion and contraction; building sway and movement; water diversion; and thermal efficiency for cost-effective heating, cooling, and lighting in the building.
The aluminum frame of a curtain wall is typically in-filled with glass, providing an architecturally pleasing building, while allowing natural light to penetrate deeper within the building.
A curtain wall system is an outer covering of a building in which the outer walls are non-structural, but merely keep the weather out and the occupants in. As the curtain wall is non-structural it can be made of a lightweight material reducing construction costs. When glass is used as the curtain wall, a great advantage is that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building. The curtain wall façade does not carry any dead load weight from the building other than its own dead load weight. The wall transfers horizontal wind loads that are incident upon it to the main building structure through connections at floors or columns of the building. A curtain wall is designed to resist air and water infiltration, sway induced by wind and seismic forces acting on the building, and its own dead load weight forces.
