The features of modern construction engineering technology are well
represented in façade construction. On the one hand there is the
desire to construct economically, with time saving and reliability.
On the other hand there is the quest for timeless elegance and
optimal environmental performance, that drives diversity in the
choice of materials and the integration of the most modern building
technology. The continuing development of unitized curtain wall
systems and increasing use of cast-in anchor channels for
structural connections has enabled façade elements to be mounted in
the minimum amount of time with no drilling or welding. Façades are
also increasingly being renewed to take advantage of recent
environmental improvements – an advantage for curtain walls secured
by anchor channels, as the thermally insulated and/or
back-ventilated façade elements can be replaced in a very short
period of time. The reliable long term performance of
JORDAHL® anchor channels (which have now been produced
for over 100 years) is especially appreciated in this market.
JORDAHL® anchor channels are available in many different
versions, and can be economically designed to IBC, IRC, ACI 318
Appendix D, and ICC-ES AC 232, using our innovative
JORDAHL® EXPERT software. which can be downloaded for
