Locker Group’s Atmosphere system is a time-efficient solution to the need for an effective and visually-striking architectural façade. Saving clients’ effort and money, Atmosphere can provide solar shading and visual screening, and is a seamless way of fulfilling a striking design intent.
How Atmosphere façades work
Locker Group’s Atmosphere façade panels come in a range of design options, with answers to any client’s architectural specifications. The patent-protected Atmosphere system includes a variety of panel design choices which are installed on tensioned stainless steel cables. Our engineering team tailor each installation to project requirements, taking building location and orientation into account. Panels are delivered to site, ready for fast installation, whether panels cover the entire building face or are spread sporadically.
Our wide range provides a mix of architectural solutions, with guidance from our expert team on the best solution for your façade. Panel perforations can provide sun shading, while also encouraging airflow and allowing natural light through. Using them as a total façade makes for excellent protection from weather conditions year-round, while sporadic installation encourages a striking visual appeal that will get heads turning.
Façade shape and profile also play a role, with ridged panels another way of achieving an interesting architectural look, in cyclonic conditions or when cables aren’t suited, while preventing the pooling of water and providing partial shading from the sun.
Ways architectural facades are used and their benefits
Atmosphere façades have been used in a plethora of architectural and construction projects of late, with their surge in popularity rooted in their ease of installation. They are most commonly used for screening open areas like car parks or for providing sun shading while maintaining an open-air feel that doesn’t impair vision when looking through the panels. Their application provides an energy efficient solution to maintaining a comfortable temperature on the inside of structures whilst minimising the requirement for mechanical ventilation.
