Metal mesh solar protection façade for research center

UF Research Academic Center

Semi-transparent solar protection made of Escale 7x1 stainless steel mesh at new research center in Lake Nona, Orlando.

The architects at HOK designed a building for the University of Florida in accordance with LEED Platinum certification requirements. Part of the sustainability strategy is the distinctive solar protection façade made of stainless steel mesh from GKD.

The solar protection façade, which covers a total area of approximately 750 m², comprises ten trapezoidal mesh panels and protects the glass façade beneath it from direct sunlight. The specific properties of the semi-transparent stainless steel mesh ensure that the offices enjoy sufficient natural daylight.
