SCREEN WALLSCROLL DOWN
Screen walls are very often perforated and have several uses. They are sometimes used to conceal windows or mechanical parts and even to reduce noise emissions. Screen walls can also act as sun shades by reducing the amount of natural light entering through a building’s windows. In some cases, they can be used to enclose a building or an area.
They provide attractive, convenient solar control in walkways and welcome spaces for a wide range of buildings and also have the following benefits:
- Reduce unwanted solar heat gain;
- Saves energy by using natural light, while reducing demand for air conditioning;
- Reduce noise emissions;
- Offer privacy to users.
- Finishes can be made to match or contrast with aluminum panels and curtain wall systems.
Screen wall & Aluminum panels
There are several ways to design a screen wall, but the important thing is to target the needs and the use to which it must meet. Whether it is for an aesthetic need, for natural light control, to provide privacy or to control the sound, several options will be possible. Several technical concepts concerning the building envelope and its structure are also important to take into consideration when integrating a screen wall into a building. For example, if it is located in front of a curtain wall or other siding, how the structural loads of the screen wall will be supported? And to which structural element should it be attached? Will it be possible to do maintenance on the curtain wall or the siding behind the screen wall? All of these questions will be addressed when we assist you in the design of your project.
