Smart solar shading reduces cooling load in Van Marcke office block
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.
In order to combat overheating during the warmer summer months, it is best to avoid direct sunlight on the windows as far as possible. Specifically, DucoSun Wing architectural solar shading offers a way forward. The result? A reduction in the cooling load of up to 63% and a substantial drop in temperature without having to rely on an energy-guzzling cooling system.
