Verve® Bifold Screens
The Verve® Bi-Folding screen system provides excellent flexibility and enables users to fully close or fully open the balcony to suit the varying conditions or use of balconies. Architects can select from a range of Louvre blade profiles or infills which can be used in vertical or horizontal applications as well as fixed or operable. Bifold Screens are set up in pairs and can be stacked to one side against the balcony wall providing a fully open balcony to take advantage of views or light inlet. These Bi-Fold screens can be installed within the balcony area or outside external balustrades.

The integration of Verve® sunscreens will improve the sustainability and energy efficiency of your project. The incorporation of sun shading on the building façade means that the heat loads and solar radiation into the building are greatly reduced and therefore the building’s energy efficiency increased. Arcadia has designed the Verve® sunscreens as a product to be include by building designers to achieve performance outcomes for building energy efficiency under Section J Energy Efficiency requirements.
Factors to Consider
Typically the Arcadia Verve® system is top hung with the top track being fixed to the soffit/structure. It is imperative that adequate substrate is included in the building design at early stages to ensure sufficient structure and engineering requirements can be achieved. Our Design and Engineering Team are available to assist architects and designers looking to integrate these products into building designs. It is critical to the operation and installation of the Verve® sliding and bi-folding screens that the substrates are level, straight and correctly aligned with each other. Arcadia has inbuilt tolerance system to cater for certain tolerances, however our Design Team can assist in early stages to achieve a buildable design while accommodating the challenge of sloping balconies, drainage, integration with flooring and balustrades.
Adding Life and Artwork
Designers can select from an endless collection of colours, finishes and infill solutions to perfectly complement creative architectural designs. Our range of imagery and customised Perforated products can be fitted within the Verve Balcony screen adding variation within the building façade and enabling designers to interweave artwork and building heritage into their project. In addition, Perforated infill can be finished in a broad range of powdercoat, anodise and timbergrain colours and textures which are Australian Standard Compliant, sustainable, durable, and are guaranteed with a long-term warranty.
