Solar Screening for All Saints Anglican School
The screens were very easy to install and give the building a strong sculptural aspect while helping to cool the building in the hot sub-tropical Brisbane climate.
All Saints Anglican School is a private, co-educational school established in 1987 under the Aegis of the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane. The school is located on a 40-hectare campus in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Kaynemaile worked with Burling Brown Architects to develop unique, solar screens to sit over the windows and reduce the amount of solar gain to the building. Undulating 3D waves of mesh were designed to create highly engaging facades on all sides of the building.
Bronze mesh was used for two 26m2 screens on the building sides and Azure Blue was used for two large horizontal screens that ran across the front and back of the building. Each screen was fitted to a metal subframe that was attached to the building exterior. This frame was developed in a wave shape with the mesh stretched across it to create the three dimensional wave effect that was not only bold and eye catching but also a softer, more organic shape than if rigid materials had been used.
Kaynemaile mesh significantly reduces both radiant heat through direct sunlight (EMR) and thermal conductive heat from entering the interior of a building by up to 70%. This gives you the ability to let daylight in and manage the passive solar gain—all while maintaining visual transparency.
These screens were very easy to install and give the building a strong sculptural aspect while helping to cool the building in the hot sub-tropical Brisbane climate.
