Ski lift station - Val Thorens
Facade cladding with HAVER Architectural Mesh DOKAWELL-MONO 3601.
In the winter season, snow - which is blown into the lift station - disturbs the ski lift regularly while covering the contacts of the cableways.
To solve this problem the architect Yves de Preval used the HAVER Architectural Mesh DOKAWELL-MONO 3601 as facade cladding for the ski lift station. The wire mesh with an open area of ~ 52% should prevent that the snow gather itself on the contact points of the cableway. At the same time, the stainless steel wire mesh ensures a natural ventilation of the whole lift station.
