Thinking sustainably is no longer a luxury, but a standard expectation with any architectural project. Fortunately, metal mesh cladding offers many environmental benefits that contribute to cleaner living and more efficient buildings.
Energy Saving Benefits:
- Acoustic benefits
- Light filtration
- Heating & Ventilation
Metal mesh can be designed into ceilings, internal façades or external cladding to offer acoustic benefits. These types of applications can be used with the goal of absorbing or reflecting sound to give you the desired aesthetic without the need for additional sound proofing materials.
Mesh façades allow the natural light to flow through a building whilst offering solar shading. This reduces the reliance artificial lighting, which will improve energy efficiency as well as adding health & wellbeing benefits for the occupants.
Heating & Ventilation
As we mentioned above, these types of cladding systems can offer solar shading benefits and manage heat and airflow more effectively. Research has shown that savings of up to 45% can be made on HVAC systems when using a mesh cladding system.
Ultimately, when designed effectively metal mesh cladding can reduce your energy costs, keep your occupants comfortable and create amazing façades.
