Energy efficient, sustainable design is becoming even more critical for new build and refurbishment projects – but it doesn’t always need to be complex or expensive.

Perforated screens used in a dual-skin façade construction provide significant solar shading and resistance to heat loss and gain in commercial and residential buildings, simply by creating space between the building’s external façade and secondary screen.

When a screen is integrated with computerised solar shading and louvre systems, it’s even possible to adjust and maximise the effects of solar radiation whilst closely controlling heat gain. Perforated screens also enable interior spaces to benefit from natural light, filtered in a way that reduces the glare of direct sunlight and fostering an environment that is comfortable for both living and working space.

In a changing climate, weather protection is a key consideration for any building or structure. Screens are innately effective at shielding against adverse and extreme weather conditions, without compromising airflow. In high winds, the perforations create localised turbulence as the air passes over. The result is a significant reduction in wind velocity through to the interior or main structure of the building. As a secondary benefit, the effects of driving rain are also reduced as water is prevented from travelling sideways.

As architectural trends evolve, more ambitious applications call for the creation of highly detailed perforated images and 3D textures – bespoke designs that add a distinctive personality to a building façade. Ash & Lacy’s cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing capabilities allow for bespoke patterns to be perforated, etched, laser cut and dimpled utilising architectural grade aluminium and steel base materials, for internal and exterior use.
