Wire mesh cladding with DOKA-BERRETTE 8915

Even elite universities need new administrative buildings from time to time. The prestigious French university “École Nationale d´ Administration“ (ENA) in Strasbourg received a new building in 2011.


The western façade of the new building got a wire mesh façade made from architectural wire mesh DOKA-BARRETTE 8915. The whole façade consists of nine stainless steel wire mesh elements, each element in dimension of approx. 12.8 m x 4 m.

The wire mesh cladding is used as an effective sunscreen. The woven wire mesh breaks and filters sunrays. Behind the screen, a comfortable, fresh internal climate is created.

W.S. Tyler delivered 372 m² of wire mesh type DOKA-BARRETTE 8915, including the mounting system of round bars, eyebolts, and pressure springs.
