Keep informed of Duco's latest news.
Anyone cruising down the E17 will undoubtedly be struck at once by the gigantic Van Marcke distribution centre and office block. The building acts as a veritable showcase for sustainable technologies: geothermal heating, fuel cells, green electricity and architectural solar shading.
Duco was approached regarding the external solar shading in the 80 apartments. Following discussions between the contractor, architectural firm and project developer, a decision was made in favour of architectural solar shading with sliding panels. The reason for this? DucoSlide Wood sliding panels with vertical louvre blades are not only functional but also provide a sleek and aesthetic façade.
DCM’s new headquarters in the region of Antwerp bears witness to an exceptional piece of architecture. The unique rear façade is fully glazed to allow maximum daylight in during the winter. But what about overheating during the hot summer months? The solution for this project was the use of smart, sunlight-controlled architectural solar shading. The architect deliberately chose horizontally positioned DucoSun Wing louvre blades.
