The benefits of natural light thanks to a beautiful and functional design solution that can be integrated in the ventilated curtain wall system.
Natural light is always pleasurable even when, as in some buildings, this is difficult to achieve, and Marazzi Engineering has designed itsceramic sun screens (brise-soleil) to meet this need, with a highly functional and stylistic solution.
Using a sophisticated system of solid and hollow volumes, the building can be styled as a sum of totally integrated architectonic elements. To this is added the practical benefit of effective screening from the sun.
This is possible since the sun screens can be perfectly integrated in the ventilated wall technology, thus bringing harmony and balance to the architecture without compromising the requirement for sustainable design.
Marazzi Engineering also offers the designer the freedom to choose betweentwo different systems: either a fixed or an adjustable one, in which the angle of the blinds can be set to suit the geographical location, the season and the orientation of the building.
The advantages of the sun screen system are both functional and aesthetic: it offers optimal control of sunlight and hence energy savings, increased occupant comfort and improved air recirculation, with stylish design solutions for any building, either new or renovated, using the wide range of Marazzi’s collections. Porcelain stoneware tiles use state-of-the-art technologies: they are resistant to thermal differentials and atmospheric agents and have long service life resulting in almost maintenance-free long lasting technical and aesthetic qualities. In addition professionals can now benefit from a high degree of project customisation, being able to choose among the many Marazzi stoneware finishes and sizes available: wood-, marble-,stone-, terracotta- or concrete-look with sizes ranging from 15x60 cm to 150x37.5 cm.
