Apo

Apo by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec has an elegant woven look and an aluminium coating. Slightly transparent, it provides a high degree of control over glare while reducing the need for cooling systems and the associated energy consumption. Colours range from dark and light neutrals to colourful gold, green and blue hues.

  • LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

    Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

    The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

  • Visual light transmission {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightTransmission}}%

    Light transmittance indicates the percentage of the visible light penetrating the textile. Densely woven textiles in dark colours usually have a lower light transmittance, whereas loosely woven fabrics in light colours allow more light to pass through. 

  • Absorption 0.40/Class D (Absorption flat) 0.40/Class D (Absorption folded)

    Acoustic absorption is indicated as αw-value which approximately corresponds to the percentage of sound absorbed. For instance, an αw-value of 0,4 translates into 40% absorption of sound.  Acoustic absorption of a textile is measured in its flat and draped state.

  • Airflow 207 Pa s/m

    Airflow resistance influences the sound absorbing qualities of a textile. Typically, the denser the construction of the textile, the higher the value.

    There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

  • Glare control rating {{site.selectedConfiguration.glareControlRating}}

  • Solar reflection {{site.selectedConfiguration.solarReflection}}%

    Optical properties according to EN14500: 2008

    The percentage of solar radiation reflected by the textile.

  • Visual light transmission {{site.selectedConfiguration.solarTransmissionTs}}%

    Optical properties according to EN14500: 2008

    The percentage of solar radiation penetrating through the textile.

    Optical properties according to EN14500: 2008

    The percentage of solar radiation absorbed by the textile.

  • Openness factor {{site.selectedConfiguration.opennessFactor}}%

    The percentage of openings in the textile.

  • gtot/SHGC - based on reference glazing G and according to EN14501:2005 {{site.selectedConfiguration.solarHeatGainThroughTotalFenestration}}%

    Results are based on reference glazing D according to EN1450: 2005.

    The percentage of solar energy that penetrates through glazing and textile. A low value means good thermal performance.

  • Total visual light transmission - based on reference glazing D and according to EN14501:2005 {{site.selectedConfiguration.visualLightTransmissionGlazingTv}}%

    Results are based on reference glazing D according to EN1450: 2005.

    The percentage of visible light penetrating through the textile. If too much visible light is transmitted into a room, it creates brightness and glare problems. For rooms with PC workstations, the maximum recommended light transmission depends on the direction in which the window faces:


    North facades: 15–20% light transmission
    West and east facades: 2–6% light transmission
    South facades: 0–5% light transmission


    This is specified by the EU directive 90/270 and ISO 9241.

  • U-value - based on reference glazing D and according to EN14501:2005 {{site.selectedConfiguration.uValueWM2K}}

    Results are based on reference glazing D according to EN1450: 2005.

    U-value describes the thermal heat loss (or gain) through a fenestration. The U-value reflects the energy flow through glass and fabric when there is a temperature difference between outside and inside, and is the insulating property. The lower the value, the better the textile's thermal heat insulation properties.
