Requirements for climate-active building envelopes

The most important function the facade performs is to harmonise the climatic and structural conditions. Nowadays, intelligent building envelopes change their characteristics - just like a person's skin that acts like a protective cover, performs vital functions and offers diverse adjustment mechanisms.

Solar energy now has the biggest impact on the building envelope.

Building physics variables, such as heat transmission coefficients, total solar energy transmittance and light transmission coefficients therefore have a great influence on the building's climatic factors. So integral planning, the focus being on the building envelope trades, is in greater demand than ever before.

Intelligent facades have to be able to change their characteristics

In fact, the building envelope's solar radiation characteristics must exhibit high levels of variance if it is to react to influences in a climate-active manner. Today, we achieve such a high degree of flexibility by using intelligently controlled sun shading systems.

Climate-active facades with optimal sun shading systems

To be able to influence the physical parameters of the facade positively, i.e. in terms of the best possible energy efficiency, you need intelligently controlled and highly flexible sun shading systems. The choice should fall to the solution that is best able to meet the respective needs of the users, the building purpose and the energy efficiency requirements.
