These installation instructions are generic in nature but specific to the PRL curtain wall systems. They are specific to all of PRL’s curtainwalls including the PLCW-600, PLCW-700 and PLCW-1000. Because each project will have differing conditions, each project should have job specific drawings prepared by journeymen drafters or engineers who are familiar with curtain-wall construction and have an intimate understanding of PRL’s curtain wall system and how to integrate it into the construction details specific to the project it is being used on. The shop drawings will take precedence over these instructions as they are project specific. You may refer to PRL’s test reports for further familiarity with construction details of the curtain walls. When in doubt contact your PRL technical representative.
