Keep informed of DUCO's latest news.
This week, DUCO Ventilation & Sun Control in Veurne celebrates its 30th anniversary. To be exact, the company started production on 18 March 1991 with a workforce of seven. Since then, the ventilation specialist has undergone massive growth. Not only are there now around 240 employees, the company infrastructure is also continually being expanded to be able to accommodate the continued growth. No large-scale festivities have been possible yet but CEO Luc Renson did not intend to let the occasion pass without a mention.
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.
