Functional textiles with glare and heat protection
A world without glass as a construction element is inconceivable for contemporary architecture. Optimising energy efficiency is one of the biggest challenges today. Particularly for new office concepts, such as open plan offices, it is a matter of using and controlling day light to best possible advantage and protecting interiors against over-heating.
The ideal internal sun protection option combines design with function and reacts to the user’s requirements with regard to the influence of light and heat from outside, as well as the need for illumination. Even in larger spaces with extensive glass surfaces, a pleasant atmosphere and sense of comfort can be designed into the space conveniently by using the right textile.
The reason why Création Baumann is building on the successful collections of “Silver&Steel” and “Metal Base” with further developments. The new GLARE&HEAT Collection which encompasses 140 fabrics, the Swiss, Langenthal based textile specialist is seen as the comprehensive problem solver for optimal sun, glare and privacy protection. The specially tested, metallised textiles generate ideal light and energy transmission. Simultaneously the highly functional fabrics reduce heat ingress; contributing and boosting the ambience and comfort in a room; not just in the contract sector but thanks to their aesthetics also in residential furnishing.
All fabrics of the GLARE&HEAT Collection are flame-retardant and are for the most part available in widths of 220 - 300 cm. The aesthetic, highly functional fabrics are tested in accordance with standards for light and solar evaluation. The certificates are available on www.creationbaumann.com and will allow specialists in this subject to carry out light and energy calculations.
