Imagerie Médicale Ducloux. Sun protection facade made of metal mesh


The façade cladding of the Imagerie Médicale Ducloux in Brive la Gaillarde, France, was realized with metal mesh from Haver & Boecker. The HAVER Architectural Mesh MULTI-BARRETTE 8123, favoured by the architectural office Dhalluin Peny, acts at the same time as an effective sun protection as well as an aesthetic cladding for the glass façade.

Due to its semi-transparent geometry, HAVER Architectural Mesh is very well suited as exterior sun protection. The wire mesh MULTI-BARRETTE 8123 reflects the UV rays and, with an open mesh area of ~ 64 %, allows good air circulation, which prevents heat accumulation in front of the glass facade. Despite the solar control function of the façade cladding, there is a good view to the outside and the rooms inside are provided with sufficient daylight.

Functionality, aesthetics & sustainability: In addition to its function, the sun protection façade impresses with its simple, timeless design. The metal mesh plays with light and shadow, creating a visually light, transparent envelope on the façade that produces a wide variety of light reflections depending on the position of the sun.

Stainless steel wire mesh from Haver & Boecker is maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant and can be recycled at the end of a long lifetime. This, in addition to other things, makes the metal mesh façade a sustainable solution.

Haver & Boecker 160 m² of wire mesh as ready-to-install mesh elements including the fastening solution consisting of round rods, eyebolts and pressure springs.
