Sun protection for Collège Louis Lachenal
In the summer of 2023, Collège Louis Lachenal in France was architecturally upgraded by integrating HAVER architectural mesh as cladding as sun protection for the façade. The French architectural firm Fleurent Architectes SARL opted for HAVER architectural mesh for the planning. The MULTI-BARRETTE 8123 cable mesh used is impressive thanks to its exceptional flexibility and stunning structure when installed as a group.
Thanks to its semi-transparent geometry, MULTI-BARRETTE 8123 cable mesh is ideal for use as an exterior sun protection. With an open mesh area of roughly 64%, the cable mesh reflects undesirable UV rays and allows an effective circulation of air, which prevents heat congestion in front of glass front buildings, for example. Yet despite its excellent sun protection capability, the façade cladding allows a clear view to the outside and the interior rooms are flooded with a sufficient amount of natural light.
