Reducing the energy consumption and heat loss in buildings holds a huge potential. Therefore new and considerably tougher energy and environmental requirements will be included in future building regulations.
Consequently there is a significant need for new industrial products which increase the energy efficiency in buildings.
With support from EUDP, ELFORSK PSO and the Market Development Fund – and with SBI, Rambøll and Europe’s largest window manufacturing group, Inwido, as primary partners – Art Andersen has developed Energy Frames: An industrial system of movable, dynamic, window-screening shutter frames – in a number of versions – with energy saving and indoor climate improving qualities: Daylight control, solar shading, visual shading, (night)insulation, natural ventilation, noise reduction etc.
The objective was to create an industrial, mass produced, standard system at a realistic price level to ”click onto” window frames. When required prefitted from the factory.
With a number of optional surfaces, colors, materials and architectural expressions. For new buildings as well as for projects with facade renovation – office buildings, corporate headquarters, institutions, and private housing.
