Solar shading made of stainless steel mesh at Cal ISO headquarters
Thanks to effective exterior shading, the Cal ISO headquarters in Folsom, USA achieves LEED Platinum status.
The stainless steel mesh hung in front of the façade plays a key role in shading the building and thereby effectively and discernibly reduces the amount of solar radiation entering the building. The California Independent System Operator Corporation manages California's energy supply from its new headquarters and sets a good example for energy-efficient architecture with its solar protection façade.
Besides an aesthetic façade design, architect Kris Barkley from Dreyfuss & Blackford achieved LEED Platinum Status with this metal mesh exterior shading solution.
