Acrovyn isn’t just a material that protects walls. It also boasts bacteriostatic properties that are particularly suited for buildings with constant traffic. Products made from Acrovyn are easy to clean and to disinfect. They can withstand highly acidic detergents and high-pressure steam cleaning. Regular cleaning processes are made more efficient and save time and energy, making the working environment more hygienic.
To improve hygiene in an area where walls are likely to get splattered or splashed, Acrovyn® wall plates can be welded edge to edge using weld seams. This specific installation achieves a smooth, hygienic and above all waterproof finish. This means you can use plenty of water in your cleaning processes without the risk of mould or fungus growth, which is unhygienic and lowers the indoor air quality.
It is increasingly common to see modern buildings using glass as a core material. Glazing is elegant and brings in natural light, which is good for the well being of people inside the building. These elements of comfort and aesthetics are both sought after by many project management teams and project owners.
Direct sunlight, however, can be an issue because, in summer, glazing can generate two-thirds of excessive heat input.. Design-phase studies offer ways to limit heat input by, for example, changing the exposure of the building, its windows, or even the solar gain from the woodwork (the shading coefficient). Architectural solutions to provide external shading devices (awnings, roof overhangs, blinds or even sun-shades) also limit the glazing’s exposure to sun rays. Installing a sun-shade on the face of the building allows both construction and renovation projects to lower the temperature of spaces that are exposed to direct sunlight. Heat is reduced inside the building and there is simply less need for air conditioning.
The Airfoil® range’s further advantage that it is modular and fully customisable. Fixed sun protection can be assembled on a projection awning, installed on the building’s façade (horizontal or vertical sun-shades, lying or standing blades) or even corner-mounted on a projection awning. RAL powder coatings are QUALICOAT and QUALIMARINE certified.
Aluminium blades can be ovoid, more commonly known as aircraft wing blades, or rectangular. To give the project better performance, they can incorporate soundproofing solutions or LEDs.
