Description

The enormous brise soleil made of Ductal® installed on the Cogex building in Vannes, France, is what we call a textbook example: this slim, precast blade of organic fiber concrete (3 cm thick), with no metal reinforcement is large (1.60 m on cantilever) and was installed after the building was completed, not during the main construction work, using an ingenious bolt system that avoided the use of wedges.

The operation was extremely rapid but required a high degree of precision during the pre-casting phase. It was made possible by the light weight of the material.
