The Open Structure Façade system provides architects with an opportunity to design a cladding system that creates a visually crisp, clean and dynamic finish to a building’s facade. Traditionally built with linear panels, Open Structure Façade systems enable light and air to travel through the system whilst maintaining excellent acoustic performance.


General Information

Why 84R?

The Hunter Douglas Architectural panel system 84R consists of 84 mm wide roll formed round edge panels, which can be simply clicked to the carrier system to form eye catching horizontal or vertical lines. 84R are roll formed panels made of aluminium, with smooth round edges that provide an elegant and light appearance. Depending on the chosen carrier there is an open joint between the panels, which can be closed using reverse panels or joint profiles to create a visually closed façade.

Health and wellbeing

Hunter Douglas contributes to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting health and wellbeing of their occupants is arguably the most important function of buildings. Buildings are not constructed just to be energy efficient. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.

Sound materials

Environmentally sound materials are key to sustainable buildings. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We’ve optimized our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.

Energy savings

Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effectively managing the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Keen on Green is an important company-wide initiative to reduce energy consumption, water usage and our overall carbon-footprint. We embrace the ISO 14001 framework to actively manage our Keen on Green objectives. Hunter Douglas and its employees actively support the communities in which we live and work, as well as those on a more global scale. Business is people. We pride ourselves on our worldwide network of experienced, intelligent, passionate and creative people that have consciously chosen Hunter Douglas as their employer.
