Vertical slats in colored glass with serigraph [135]

The curtain wall facade is composed of precast modules double skin seeking the natural ventilation of the wrapping and also ensure protection against solar radiation.

<p>These precast modules of 1.5m x 4.0m size are anchored to the floor slab by hooks, male-female type, in the horizontal and vertical sides.</p>
<p>Each module has a "double skin" one internal and one external consisting of glass mounted on aluminum profiles. The inner layer is constituted by a window frame of the traditional type that ensures high performance of thermal and acoustic insulation. The outer layer positioned at 30 cm is constituted by a single tempered glass with serigraphy on the inner side and coupled with structural silicone frames (partially fixed and rotatable in the vertical direction).</p><p>Attached in groups of nine the panels are electronically controlled to rotate around its vertical axis by a center pin through motors placed in the intrados of the module. Their movements are controlled and regulated by light sensors in the front.</p>
