High performance sun protection makes a vital contribution to architecturally successful building shells. Targeted shading that also offers a high degree of transparency increases both energy efficiency and quality of stay for those inside the building. The key here is to combine maximum functionality with sophisticated aesthetics. Wire mesh material from GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG (GKD) has therefore ranked among the preferred materials for sustainable sun protection for many years. The leading global manufacturer of fabrics made from wire meshing and all other weavable materials is now catering to the stricter requirements in terms of energy efficiency, convenience and aesthetics with a new strategic alignment. As a full-scope provider of wire mesh sun protection systems, GKD now offers a holistic product portfolio and comprehensive services, all of which have been coordinated down to the finest detail. The systems are based on the new Licorne® material made from non-anodised, durably corrosion resistant aluminium. This spiral mesh material combines an elegant appearance with a high degree of efficiency and flexibility. All typical sun protection and roller blind systems for internal or external applications are now available in this metallic fabric.
