Facade Screen Systems
Facade Screens Systems bring elegance to any space. Also known as Curtain Wall Systems, this cladding can quickly and dramatically improve the interior or exterior appearance of a commercial building, courtyard or garden. Facade Screen technologies and designs have come a long way since the simple external layer of cladding of their early implementations. Today, they give commercial and residential buildings alike a break from heat exposure, create a semi-transparent safety barrier, provide a privacy break and help block unsightly views, among many benefits.
Facade Screen Designs
A Grigliato Louver Screen finds its inspiration with the iconic GRIGLIATO architectural grille panel. Grigliato is “grille” in Italian. These facades can be built along the entirety of your building exterior or set apart to create both visual depth and additional sun shading. The classic Grigliato screen is made of steel bars and rods electro forge welded together to create a solid yet architecturally flexible screen. Screens protect from both sunlight and strong winds. Larger mesh creates a textured yet see-through design while smaller mesh creates a more solid appearance and greater wind protection.
The Grigliato Louver Screen is the angled slats often seen in classic shutters, among other beautiful architectural designs. Many commercial properties choose the Grigliato Louver facade screen system instead of the classic grille. The benefits of the louver are all visual. If you enjoy the look of slatted shutters or paneled siding, the Grigliato louver facade can provide airflow and shade while also creating that classic architectural look. Your facade system can blend in or stand out with Grigliato louvers.
Select Screen Systems are among the latest in facade style and function. Rather than creating a solid or ventilated facade over the surface of your building, a screen system uses grated screens to create a more light-weight and porous solution. The screen system is designed to allow air to pass freely through your facade while also providing structural support. As a bonus, the shade created by a lightweight facade system is also great for building energy-efficiency.

Eco Friendly Finishes And Powder Coatings
Our Powder Coatings are environmentally friendly and are an organic high quality finished surface providing integrity, durability, and a beautiful appearance over an extended period of time.
Powder Coating has been proven to be safer for the environment than wet paint applications. Most wet paints have solvents that are harmful to the environment. However, powder coat is solvent-free and applied electrostatically.
Ecologically there are no VOCs emitted and very little waste is produced because most powder coating overspray can be reused, greatly reducing the waste commonly found in liquid painting.
Environmental Impact Of Powder Coating
Despite all the care that is taken to protect the environment, there are still benefits to be gained. There is a positive long term effect of powder coating the product for corrosion protection. Our coating system protects the metals which are exposed to the project conditions, which in turn enjoy a longer lifetime and require far less maintenance. Decay and early replacement of parts are prevented or at best minimized.
In the long run, powder coating will replace its counterpart, wet paint, in more and more areas. Technically, powder coating competes with wet paint head to head. In addition, powder coating is more friendly to the environment than wet paint, for the same cost, yet powder coating also has the advantage of superior mechanical and anti-corrosive properties. Whereas wet paint is all washed up!
Another advantage of using powder coatings is the subtraction of solvents. The powder is applied without any additives. The harmful emission of V.O.C., as used in wet paint, does not occur. The environment also benefits from the electrostatic adhesion of the metal to the powder particles. This adhesion creates a smooth and even layer that covers the edges of the metal object. This eliminates sharp edges that need to be ground into shape. The powder, not attracted to the substrate, is contained and reused. Wet paint overspray has to be disposed of as chemical waste.
