ONTARIO, Calif.– September 01, 2023– The editorial staff at Metal Construction News has again turned to Wallner Expac for its expanded metal expertise- this time to share the different ways it can control daylight. It’s a versatile building material that can be used in many ways to control daylight, and this in-depth article, Controlling Daylight with Expanded Metal–is now available online and in print.
Written by Sr. Marketing Manager Manuel Menchaca for the September issue, this feature article explores a variety of ways expanded metal shades, diffuses light, and reduces solar heat gain. Shading is the most common application to control sunlight; however, expanded metal can also diffuse light: The open pattern allows light to pass through it, breaking it up and distributing it into smaller, uniform beams. Its reflectiveness can reduce solar heat gain: Sunlight and its heat are reflected, lowering the amount of heat absorbed by a building’s exterior.
Details and advantages for each of these expanded metal applications include:
“Many people recognize expanded metal when they change the HVAC filters in their homes,” states Menchaca. “However, it’s such a universal product and I enjoy sharing its many uses– especially the architectural ones. They are my favorite as they really showcase expanded metal’s decorative applications such as façades and ceilings panels.”
