Innovative Architecture honored the sun protection mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 from Haver & Boecker with two awards. The HAVER Architectural Mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 not only received the “Winner” award in the category “Products – Facades”, but also in the “Innovative Material” category, which focuses on sustainable, energy-efficient and functional materials that are versatile in terms of design.
The LARGO-TWIST 2045 wire mesh, developed especially for solar shading, is characterized by its tilted horizontal flat wires, which provide good solar or visual protection depending on the orientation. Installed over a large area on the building structure, the solar protection mesh creates a particularly homogeneous appearance with low transparency but good visibility from the inside to the outside.
In addition to its visual characteristics, the stainless steel mesh LARGO-TWIST 2045 also convinces with its good sun shading values: with a sunlight incidence angle of 60° and double glazing, the mesh with its tilted horizontal flat wires, reduces the energy input by more than 90%. In combination with sun protection glazing, a g-value of 0.02 can be achieved. By comparison, most of the used HAVER architectural meshes achieve with the same requirements g-values between 0.1 and 0.18.
