The Shade mesh system provides various benefits to building in terms of reduction of solar heat gain and glare. The mesh also provides sweeping views without any interruption and allows natural daylight to flow through the building.
Cambridge Architectural has also come up with a modelling protocol for the energy simulation modelling software that is based on DOE 2.2 calculation engine. This model provides building modellers with the inputs required to incorporate various shading systems into the design of the building. The model also helps them to ascertain the target effect of the solar heat gain coefficients and shading before the commencement of construction. The mesh system was chosen by the BUILDINGS 2012 magazine due to it abilities and characteristics that help in optimising energy performance.
Cambridge Architectural specialises in design and construction from the concept stage to final installation. The company also provides a wide range of metal mesh solutions along with system design, engineering and installation under difficult environment and limited financial resources.
