To safeguard the books, a very effective sun protection solution was necessary, as well as a comfortable environment for library guests that did not obstruct their view of the surroundings.
 

Problem:

To safeguard the books, a very effective sun protection solution was necessary, as well as a comfortable environment for library guests that did not limit their view of the surroundings.

Solution:

The SageGlass Climaplus Classic dynamic sun control glass proven to be the best fit for these needs. By automatically or manually altering the hue, the glass decreases heat intake and hence the energy and expense of cooling the structure. In addition, 3,500 square meters of COOL Lite XTREME 50/22 II, a premium sun control glass, were utilized.
