Reversible Facade System

Translucent building elements with high reuse potential and low weight based on weather resistant polycarbonate panels that are produced in a sustainable way.

The material has the same insulation value as triple glazing and allows daylight into the building, but also has some advantageous reversible properties. It is not as fragile as glass and more than 10 times lighter. More importantly, the elements can be assembled and disassembled quickly, easily and with a minimum of waste. Compared to traditional glazed facades, the CO2 emissions per m2 of facade are 2.5 times lower for the polycarbonate panel than for glass, not to mention the CO2 emissions avoided due to the lighter supporting structure.
