Sun Protection with Architectural Mesh

    Modern glass architecture requires effective protection against sunlight. HAVER Architectural Mesh can be utilized to filter sunrays, creating an aesthetic sun protection screen while maintain a cool, comfortable temperature in the area behind it.

    Sunshading wire mesh applied to the exterior of a building offers much more effective sun protection than interior systems. Moreover, façade designs with sunshading wire mesh combine excellent and attractive protection with a whole range of added advantages.

    Incident solar radiation is perfectly filtered and the warming of the façade greatly reduced as a result. The transparent quality of the mesh not only enhances the visual effect of the façade; it also ensures a clear view of the building from the outside-in and vice versa. This effect offers a great many more possibilities when designing façades, especially those made of glass. Moreover, because they reduce energy costs for air conditioning, sunshading wire mesh façades that give sun protection also offer many economic savings.

    Your benefits at a glance:

    Effective shading

    Woven wire mesh provides shade and reduces temperature in the summer, while maintaining warmth and reducing heating costs in the winter.

    Natural ventilation

    Architectural wire mesh allows for proper ventilation and prevents accumulation of warm air in front of the façade. A corresponding distance between mesh and glass enhances this ventilation effect.

    Excellent view from the inside

    Despite efficient shading, sun protection made of wire mesh offers visual transparency from the inside.

    Fixed and removable solutions

    Wire mesh is particularly suitable for a permanent use as sun protection with large-scale tensioned elements. It can also be integrated in sliding or hinged frames for removable solutions.
