ALUMINIUM AND GLASS LATTICE: double skin for curtain-wall-type facades.


THE SYSTEM

The aluminium and glass lattice is designed to combine with curtain-wall-type facades. It offers an enormous amount of thechnical and aesthetic posibilities to improve the afore mentioned facade system performance. The main profiles are made of 6063 T5 aluminium and the connections, of stainless steel.

ADVANTAGES

The double-skin plays an important part in the control of the building ventilation and helps to optimize the daylight illumination. Between the inner (curtain-wall-facade) and outer skin (aluminium and glass lattice) remains a thermal buffer zone wich, depending on the time of the year, opening or closing the inner or outer skin, will colaborate to cool down or to warm up the rooms behind the facade. All this has a direct and positive effect on the energy consumption, reducing the power required to climatize the building. 

VERSATILITY

The aluminium and glass lattice can be adapted to the project's requirements. From the profile measures, modulation of the system, to the groups of mobile louvres.

Features

THE DESIGN

The system consists of an aluminium substructure, attached to the building's main structure, wich supports the louvres. This louvres are made of heat-soaked single pane safety glass up to 16 mm thick. However, the glass can be combined with other materials such as wood louvres, plastic or sheet metal. Furthermore the glass louvres can be decorated with colours, patterns or filtres to control the daylight. There are endless aesthetic possibilities.

MOVEMENT AND MODULATION

The louvres can be installed fixed or mobile. In case of being mobile, they turn from 0º to 100º to the horizontal, thanks to an engine and a drive shaft. The piece of lattice embraced between two slabs makes up a single group of louvres wich move synchronously. The lenght of each mobile group depends on the weight of the louvres. In front of each slab, a fixed louvre hides the engine and the drive shaft. It also balances out the mismatch of the modulation, in case there was any.

Opening types


SUMMER

Depending on the position of the sun, the louvres turn searching for the maximum shade, from 0º to 100º to the horizontal.




WINTER

Depending on the position of the sun, the louvres turn searching for the maximum lighting, from 0º to 100º to the horizontal.

CLOUDY

Maximum opening of the louvres to reflect the ambient light and get it into the building.
