Standards

CWCT has written standards on:

  • Curtain walling
  • Walls with ventilated rainscreens
  • Slope glazing

Standards are written under the guidance of the CWCT Standards Committee comprising leading architects, consultants, contractors and manufacturers.  CWCT standards have now been adopted by NBS and NHBC.

These standards are not (and should not be relied on as) a design guides and in each case are intended for use only by designers and specifiers with experience of building envelopes, having regard to the particular circumstances and requirements of each case, and exercising professional judgement including the reasonable skill and care to be expected or a professional of the relevant discipline in that context.

CWCT accepts no duty of care, obligation or liability, whatsoever, to its members or others, in relation to the use of these standards for any purpose.
