Sadev Architectural Glass Systems as Engineers

The project of the University Campus in Lyon is made up of 4units (housing, restaurants, undergraduate courses) in the city center of Lyon. The research center people's attention thanks to 2 double-skin facades. The 400 slik-sunscreen printed glass blades which compose both facades, present outstanding dimensions (53 cm width - 2.8 to 3.16 m height - average weight of 130 kg per blade).

The project aimed at finding a technical solution which :

- met the climatic and seismis constraints. - was able to maintain glass panels but also ensure the blades' rotation according to the sunshine.

Sadev designed a fixing system composed of S3000AX spiders and a mechanism which drive the blades on the lower side of the glass. This system had to provide a glass rotation up to 135°, but also glass content requirements, automated turning of the blades.
