Hunter Douglas has developed an effectively frameless version of its QuadroClad ventilated rainscreen facade, called QuadroMeleon.
Instead of aluminium panels, tinted glass panels up to 1,200 x 4,000mm in size can be affixed to the system, which gives the appearance of four-sided structural glazing. Aluminium extrusions are bonded to the glass panels and installed in the same substructure as the standard QuadroClad panels. This achieves good weather-proofing and natural ventilation, according to the company.
