Verve® Sliding Screens
Verve® sliding screens provide excellent versatility for solar shading, reducing light glare, block out the wind [initial provide wind blow] and add privacy to balconies. Verve® Screens are mounted within an engineered Track System which enables the screens to slide along the balcony edge. 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. Perforated aluminium infills are also commonly used to add features and artwork within the Verve® Screens.
- Spans provided are based on generic wind pressure of 1 KPa. Please contact our team if you require project specific wind pressures or terrain categories
- Spans provided are an indicative guide and are subject to the building location and applied wind speeds
- Spans provided are based on average end fixity value and subject to final connection detail
- Where products are also acting as a balustrade, span capacity will be reduced.
- Spans are provided where the product is used standalone, where additional products are connected, span capacity may be reduced.
- For detailed span information, contact Arcadia 1300 458 458 or email email@example.com
Get the most out of your sunscreens
Verve® Sliding sunscreens provide apartment users a lot more flexibility with the design enabling users to slide screens anywhere across the balcony face. This assists with sun control, managing privacy and views as desired, Blocking Wind and personal comfort. Verve® sunscreens are fitted to quality track and rolling systems that ensure long-lasting durability and smooth performance and can take multiple screens within the one track. Infill products include fixed, operable, vertical, and horizontal Blades, as well as a range of Standard Perforated, Imagery Perforation, 3D Perforation and Lasercut aluminium infills to suit your building design.
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.
