Airflow and efficiency for Loma Linda University parking garage
Location San Bernardino, CA, USA. Installation Weiss Sheet Metal Company
Built for hospital patients and visitors as part of the extensive campus project, the brief for this car park called for a visually captivating design with material efficiencies. San Bernardino’s hot, dry summers meant airflow was a critical requirement. With a fast install time and simple fixing details Kaynemaile-Armour exceeded the project requirements—providing enhanced air flow through beautiful louver-like strips.
One of the unique properties of Kaynemaile-Armour is its solar reduction. By protecting the building from direct sunlight and not restricting the cooling effects of air movement, Kaynemaile-Armour significantly reduces the total energy costs required to cool a building in hot climates.
The three-dimensional mesh structure means a high proportion of the mesh surface area is always in shade, giving a cooling effect as the air passes through the cross-sectional open area. It significantly reduces both radiant and thermal conductive heat from entering the building envelope by up to 70%. Unlike steel mesh products which act as conductive energy stores, Kaynemaile-Armour mesh remains at a near ambient temperature protecting the building from heat conduction.
Multiple solutions for exterior environments—facade cladding, rain and wind screening and solar shading.
