Reference projects using HAVER Architectural Mesh
As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore, it is best to form your own picture of our diverse wire meshes - and let yourself be inspired by projects that have already been implemented. Each of them contains all the expertise from hundreds of projects and more than 130 years of experience in the production and processing of wire mesh. Always with the aim of achieving the best result for our customers.
In our extensive and well-stocked reference overview, you will find many successfully completed projects using HAVER Architectural Mesh. Convince yourself of the variety of applications and the quality of our wire mesh and let the projects we have already completed show you the high standards of our work.
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.
The implementation of this project posed a number of challenges, particularly due to the fact that the mesh elements could only be installed during the holiday period. This time constraint required precise planning and coordination to ensure a smooth execution of the project. In addition, the old building was to be structurally optimised in order to integrate the new façade cladding. This project shows just how HAVER architectural mesh can contribute to the functional improvement of protective measures against sun rays.
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.
The effectiveness of sun protection façade is equally as impressive as its simple, elegant, classic design. The metal mesh skilfully displays light and shadows creating a seemingly delicate and transparent shell on the façade while generating a myriad of reflections depending on the angle of the sun.
The stainless steel mesh used by Haver & Boecker is maintenance-free, corrosion-resistant and can be recycled at the end of its long service life thus making the metal mesh façade a sustainable solution. Haver & Boecker supplied a total of 490 square metres of wire mesh comprising completely ready-to-install mesh elements including the mounting equipment.
