One of the great things about ACFA HD screens is the endless variety of expressions they can lend to homes and buildings. With ACFA HD  technology and the ability to quickly and cost-effectively produce enchanting and effective Facade screening, Thanks to their easy workability, either using CNC machines or Water Jet, your imagination seems to be the only limit.

From a decorative point of view, the trend at the moment is to incorporate geometric patterns to provide visual interest and cast light in attractive ways, ensuring the building ages gracefully in place.  

In extreme climate conditions, where environment control is a major consideration, architectural screens provide the ability to manipulate light, heat, and sound to increase sustainability and comfort. 

Solar Protection

As the sun’s potency is the primary contributor to overheating and the associated costs with cooling, screens can effectively limit the sun’s direct rays and consequent glare, while still allowing natural light to enter.  In fact, as screens are generally oriented to respond to solar movement, they form a very cost-effective way to prevent heat gain and loss while reducing reliance on the electricity grid through the provision of natural light. Combined with high-quality window glazing and correct orientation, they provide a major tool in sustainable house design and help to make a home comfortable and cost-efficient. 

Light Control

While light can bring beauty to any environment, too much light can wash out an area and make it uncomfortable for rest and play. Natural sunlight is vitally important for health and happiness but mediating the strength and angles of the sun can really make or break the ambiance of a space.
Glass is commonly used to perform this function, but glare and glow can sometimes be hard to manage through the uniform material. An alternate design approach has been towards perforated, shaped, and structured screen designs to control and mediate light and create the desired internal atmosphere.

Privacy Control

Where privacy is concerned, screens are ideal to provide a balance between privacy and outlook. As most people want to maintain their views while blocking the prying eyes of others, the design and shape of your screens are crucially important. So too is screen orientation.  Cuts, configurations, sizes, and spacing should be carefully selected for their utility to make sure the screen affords the view you desire while protecting against the views you don’t.
Similarly, the ability to adjust the permeability of the screens with flexible and moveable installations could be a great option for playing with changing conditions.
Often planning regulations and Res Code standards stipulate that views into neighbors’ private open spaces should be mitigated. Architectural screens can be a great way to prevent overlooking issues in neighboring properties – especially on the first and second levels.
