CENTRIA’s EcoScreen® Perforated Screenwall panels were specified for Charlotte Douglas International Airport’s two five-story parking decks, for their many aesthetic, practical and budgetary attributes.
Approximately 60,000 square feet of CENTRIA’s EcoScreen was specified for each parking deck in 20-gauge stainless steel Econolap ¾” and Style-Rib exposed fastener profiles. The unique fabrication provides 40% open area for the effect of a translucent screen to control light and air movement, and to conceal the appearance of equipment behind the screen. The material is lightweight, requiring limited structural material usage.
In many applications, EcoScreen Perforated Screenwalls provide other environmental benefits including the reduction or elimination of artificial lighting, fresh air ventilation, and reduced light pollution. EcoScreen, made with stainless steel and 100% renewable energy, earned the first ever Cradle To Cradle Gold CertificationCM for exterior building products.
