Médiathèque Les Halles

Sun protection facade with HAVER Architectural Mesh

The original building of the Médiathèque Les Halles has its origin in the eighteenth century. Designed by ESPACE ARCHITECTURE, it consists of huge glazed areas, but also some elements of the historic structure could be obtained and integrated into the new building concept. One part of the modern glass façade received a cladding made of HAVER Architectural Mesh EGLA-TWIN 4243.

The metal mesh EGLA-TWIN 4243, in this case used as sunscreen and fall protection, creates because of its smooth surface on one side very flat light reflections by sunlight. With a solar transmission of 40% at an incidence angle of 60° it also offers an effective sun protection.
