Sunshading metal for interior and exterior application

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

Incident solar radiation is perfectly filtered and the warming of the facade greatly reduced as a result. The transparent quality of the mesh not only enhances the visual effect of the facade; 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 facades, especially those made of glass. Moreover, because they reduce energy costs for air conditioning, sunshading metal facades that give sun protection also offer many economic savings.

Sunshading metal for modern glass architecture

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

Effective shading

Sunshading metal provides shade and reduces temperature in the summer, while maintaining warmth and reducing heating costs in the winter.

Natural ventilation

Sunshading metal allows for proper ventilation and prevents accumulation of warm air in front of the facade. A corresponding distance between mesh and glass enhances this ventilation effect.

Excellent view from the inside

Despite efficient shading, sun protection made of sunshading metal offers visual transparency from the inside.

Fixed and removable solutions

Sunshading metal 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.

Advantages of sunshading metal:

  • Natural Ventilation
    Sunshading metal is light, durable and transparent, providing an array of benefits for your building. The transparency of sunshading metal allows it to act as a natural ventilation system. By utilizing wire cloth on the facade of e.g. your parking facility, you can eliminate the need for costly HVAC systems, which will not only reduce energy costs but also have a positive environmental impact. Additionally, the openness of the mesh allows an abundance of natural light and air to flow and improving air quality in the space. Sunshading metal can also lessen the cost of a fire protection system.
  • Weather Protection
    From harsh snow to dry desert heat or high winds, architectural mesh facades are functional for any weather conditions. Our stainless steel mesh acts as an efficient and cost effective barrier to weather conditions around the world.
  • Fall Protection
    Made from stainless steel, our woven architectural mesh is incredibly strong, rigid and durable, delivering extra protection from personal injury. Full-height tensioned mesh panels act as a protective shield from falls. Additionally, mesh railings can add an extra level of safety and fall protection.
  • Sun Protection
    Sunshading metal offers effective sun protection. The horizontal wires of the mesh facade act as a light barrier, helping to maintain a comfortable temperature within your building.
  • Environmental Responsibility
    Stainless steel has a high amount of recycled content and is 100 percent recyclable at end of use. By using architectural mesh not only are you getting a custom building detailed to your specifications, you are also increasing the sustainability of your building.
  • Low Maintenance - Easy Installation
    Our sunshading metal comes ready to install with complete and easy-to-follow instructions. We provide unique engineering support and calculations for each project based on your necessary requirements and offer onsite assistance to eliminate risk. The mesh panels arrive with all required hardware, helping simplify the installation process. Once installed, stainless steel sunshading metal facades require little-to-no maintenance.
