The Lexicon Bracknell - Louvre Wall & Louvre Doors

Duco Ventilation & Sun Control NV

The bulk of the project, spread over seven large blocks, used DucoWall Basic to provide plant screening. One element, where higher level glazing needs privacy screening from the walkways below, DucoWall Classic W 50Z is installed inverted so that the areas gain maximum light without sacrificing privacy. Another challenge was to incorporate louvre doors into the plant screening areas without interrupting the aesthetic appearance. Here again a standard DucoDoor solution provided exactly what was required. The DucoDoor can use the full range of DucoWall blades to provide a beautiful and uniform result.

The Louvre Museaum , Paris


The Louvre is the most visited museum in the world. Opened in 1989, the entrance area below the pyramid was originally designed to accommodate 4.5 million visitors per year. Just 25 years later, the number of visitors exceeded the 10 million mark. As a result, the museum decided to do major renovations that would have the lowest possible impact on the building architecture. Visitor numbers mean extraordinary requirements for the sanitary facilities. The Louvre chose TOTO for sanitary facilities located in the Hall Napoléon. Toilets, urinals, washbasins and hand dryers for the men's and women's washrooms.

Louvre Museum Expo - Duc de Luynes, France

Van Marcke Belgium - Solar Shading

Duco Ventilation & Sun Control NV

These wing-shaped louvre blades act as an extra shell for the curtain wall. They cut out the sunlight, thus preventing the interior temperature from rising too high on hot days. Annoying reflections on computer screens are thus definitely a thing of the past.
