Curtain-Wall of Fame
"Frankly, it's just a great invention"
- Rick Hammer
It's cold! A freezing 19⁰F day and Rick is about to begin a job painting the balcony windows on more than 200 apartments. Sounds impossible right? Absolutely not!
Rick Hammer | Project Leader:
"Normally, we would not even be able to take on this kind of job with such low temperatures. Both the workers and the painting would suffer too much. However, a friend recommended we try the Curtain-Wall system. Each balcony became an enclosed and heated workplace. In our enclosure we measured the temperature at 46⁰F, and when the sun was shining it climbed up to 59⁰F!
Did it take a lot of time to enclose the balcony?
Theo | Painter:
"A 30' long balcony took about 15 minutes. Breaking it down takes about the same. This makes the Curtain-Wall system extremely flexible for us! "
What were the benefits of using Curtain-Wall for this project?
"Frankly, it's just a great invention. The system is extremely flexible. Our painters can put up a wall fast and there is no one working in the cold".
Theo: "When we are finished painting, it is back in the carry bag within no time and we set off to the next job."
