The Gadagne museum in Lyon is equipped by Mermet
Once again, Mermet, the manufacturer of glass yarn based fabrics for solar protection (located in Veyrins Isère), is able to demonstrate its technical capabilities at a prestigious project site: the Gadagne museum in the city of Lyon.
The building complex situated at the heart of "Old Lyon", an area designated as a World Heritage Site, includes the Lyon History Museum and the Puppets of the World Museum.
A magnificent Renaissance building, itself classified as a Historic Monument in 1920.
Mermet, adaptable to all applications
The architect’s overriding requirement was to maintain the harmony of the buildings. It was therefore necessary to find a supplier who could offer unique solutions in the area of solar protection and signage. In addition to the 146 window panels, 16 kakemonos were therefore produced for printing.
Not being able to fix directly onto the original walls, the tensile panels are secured by cords to the floors and ceilings (varying between 2.1m and 4.1m high) .
With each individual fabric panel able to provide both solar protection and signage, Mermet offers the museum a harmonious and high-quality solution.
The chosen fabric, M-Screen 8503, meets all the requirements of a public building:
- High mechanical resistance and good dimensional stability,
- Oeko-tex standard 100 and Greenguard ® certification and the Enduris™ Glass Core quality label for visitor health and safety.
The decorative colour 0207 White Pearl and the basketweave of this coated fibreglass fabric offer transparency and thermal comfort while controlling the amount of natural light (around 87% of light rays are filtered for superior glare control).
Suitable for many different applications (solar protection, tensile structures and signage), Mermet offers you a mix of properties.
Already present in numerous museums and historical buildings, the company is returning to its home region to give the Gadagne Museum in Lyon the benefit of its know-how. Between shade and light, Mermet is helping to provide this exceptional location with its own very special atmosphere…
