Scope:

92 units zip systems in different widths (1,04 to 4,65 m) and heights

(2,5 to 3,4 m)

Total area approx. 445 sqm

 

Description:

A sense of well-being in the hotel rooms.

With its modern design, state-of-the-art technology and convenient handling, the zip system window awning makes a significant contribution to this. The cubic design gives the zip system a simple yet exclusive character and thus also discreetly integrates it into this characteristic façade design.

Komtur Pharmaceuticals, Freiburg

Client: Komtur, Freiburg

 

Execution: 2018

 

Scope:

83 units s_enn sun protection systems

Total area approx. 995 sqm

 

Description:

This high-quality office building was equipped with the equally high-quality s_enn stainless steel sunshade. Matching the large glass surfaces, the filigree and transparent sun protection therefore allows an outside view and decreases considerably the energy input into the building at the same time.

IHK, Chemnitz

Client: IHK, Chemnitz

Architect: apa architekten, Chemnitz

 

Execution: 2011-2015

 

Scope:

 

Construction phase 1: South-east

Total area approx. 440 sqm

204 units s_enn SN 71.1

 

Construction phase 2: South

Total area approx. 38 sqm

16 units s_enn SN 71.1

 

Construction phase 3: South-West

Total area approx. 400 sqm

Approx. 200 units s_enn SN 71.1

 

Description:

As part of the renovation of the facade and sun protection, a special stainless steel curtain (s_enn) was planned and realised.

From an architectural point of view, the s_enn stainless steel curtain is perfectly integrated into the facade surfaces.

Due to its high wind stability, the new s_enn sunshade can be used almost all year round, even in critical weather conditions.

 

The high transparency (transparency from the inside to the outside) offers glare-free working at the computer workstations, it's even working at all times in full sunlight without reflections or glare in the rooms.

Airport, Hamburg - Terminal 2 / window strip / Eastern façade and Plaza

 

Client: Airport Hamburg GmbH

 

Architect: Lüthje Soetbeer Architecture, Hamburg

 

Execution: 2010-2011

 

Scope:

Total area approx. 1,560 sqm interior anti-glare systems.

118 units horizontal coaxial countermove systems in fixed window strips, movable

160 units anti-glare roller blinds in frames for SHEV flap, 2-fold split, horizontally movable

47 units vertical interior anti-glare systems on Eastern façade T2 and Plaza, cable-guided vertical systems

 

Description:

The aim was to create pleasant, glare-free conditions at the VDU workstations as well as to maintain smoke and heat extraction. The cm designers developed small, coaxial countermove systems with a sun protection fabric for the SHEV flaps. As two of the seven window strips are located at the northern edge of the hall, only the remaining five had to be equipped with a total of 160 mini systems.

 

For the window strips themselves, cm designed 114 coaxial countermove systems. With an average of nine square meters, they are considerably larger and outfitted with the same special fabric as the anti-glare systems in the flaps. All systems are controlled via sun sensors that are connected to the existing building services system of Terminal 2.

 

Two units each with an area of 143 by 69.5 centimeters were fitted into the flaps with the help of a special frame. This way, the glare protection can be folded upwards when a quick extraction of smoke and heat is necessary. After completion of the work in November 2010, airline employees in particular will benefit from the new glare protection system. The screens at the ticket and check-in counters are no longer exposed to direct sunlight, making it easier to see passenger data and booking forms. Another group also benefits from the better lighting conditions: the numerous business travelers who work on their e-mails via smartphones and notebooks shortly before departure - in a glare-free environment.
