Library Ourense

HAVER and BOECKER as manufacturer wire mesh facade cladding

Sun protection facade with Architectural Mesh

To protect the interior against excessive sunshine and overheating, the large windows of the library in the Spanish Ourense are covered with HAVER Architectural Mesh.

For the sun protection screen the architect Jose Manuel Casabella Lopez chose the cable mesh MULTI-BARRETTE 8301. With its open area of 66 % it acts like an elegant transparent cladding.


A special feature of the façade cladding are the diagonal wire mesh elements, which are to the façade. Due to the optical overlaps of the diagonal wire mesh elements, moiré effects appear at the façade cladding.


In total Haver & Boecker supplied 678 m² stainless steel wire mesh, including the proven mounting system consisting of round bars, eye bolts and pressure springs.
