External Facade made from MULTI-BARRETTE 8159
Haver & Boecker produced an individual architectural wire mesh, designed to meet the specific technical requirements of the architect .
To increase the effectiveness of sun protection, standard weave type MULTI-BARRETTE 8301 was modified by weaving the horizontal rods closer together. The resulting special mesh type, MULTI-BARRETTE 8159, allows good light refraction, whilst at the same time creating a bright and pleasant atmosphere behind the façade.
Overall the facade consists of 3 m wide wire mesh elements with differing heights of between 12 m and 24 m. The elements have been mounted using the proven system of integrated round bars and eyebolts as well as pendular clips for the intermediate fixing.
In total Haver & Boecker supplied 1,140 m² of mesh in ready-to-install panels including mounting brackets.
