Abstract

This study describes and analyses the performances of a double skin type facade of an industrial building. The natural ventilation of this latter is studied and determines its thermal characteristics. It affects the specific heat loss and the indirect solar gains of the double skin facade. The influence on the heat demand is calculated on the basis of the new European Standard, after having adjusted the calculations to the measurements. A potential saving of 25% is possible. The aestival overheating problem is also treated. A simplified study shows that the use of reflective curtains reduces the internal temperature by about 2°C, but is not enough to lower temperatures which may rise up to 34°C.
