To accommodate further 2000 students, the university in Marseille has been extended with a new building. This new building houses new exercise and lecture rooms, a large auditorium, a library and a cafeteria.
To protect the interior from the sun, 171 m² semi-transparent wire mesh were installed at the façade. The architectural wire mesh type DOKAWELL-MONO 3601 with its open area of 52 % works as an effective sun screen. Behind the screen, a comfortable, fresh and light internal climate is created with mesh appearing almost transparent.
Haver & Boecker supplied ready-to-install stainless steel wire mesh elements with a height of 2,8 m and a width of 2,2 m. They were fixed with the mounting system of tension profiles, clevis screws and pressure springs.
