Installation of Louvers for the protection of schools in Costa Rica

Installation of Louvers for the protection of schools in Costa Rica


Today we want to show a very special installation made in the neighbourhood of La Carpio, on the outskirts of San José in Costa Rica, a country where the high exposure to the sun throughout the year makes protection from it a constructive need of utmost importance.

Installation of Louvers for the protection of schools in Costa Rica

With a system of louvers, an educational centre designed to accommodate more than 2,000 students has been protected. It is one of the most ambitious projects from the Ministry of Public Education to have been undertaken in the country in recent years.

An example of the importance of this space for the nation is that its inauguration was presided over by the President of the Republic Luis Guillermo Solís.


Louver Z:  Designed for the comfort of the installer

In the different photographs that accompany this text you can see the louver models installed in the school: the Z, the O-210 and the O-300.

The Z model, which in this installation is made of aluminium, can also be configured in PVC to achieve interesting features at a more affordable price.

The supports are die-cut equidistantly, allowing several openings to facilitate the anchoring of the slats at level, without the need for fastening screws.


O-210 and 0-300 louvers: Maximum efficiency over large areas 

The O-210 and O-300 models are designed to cover large surfaces with façades in areas where incoming light, leakage of water and wind action must all be controlled.

Although in this case the installation position is vertical, it also allows a horizontal installation as per the technical and aesthetic needs of the space which needs to be protected.

Despite being two models with motorisation capabilities, in this case it was decided to install them by determining a certain slat orientation by means of fixing systems, thus adapting to the specific needs of the façade in a geographical area with

an almost constant exposure to the sun during daylight hours.


Total adaptability for different projects

Another advantage that the authorities benefit from by relying on Giménez Ganga, is the ability to choose from the brand’s wide variety of products that aim to please architects with all kinds of needs.

The use of the highest quality aluminium and the production in compliance with the highest international standards, together with infinite coating possibilities and the technical advice made available to professionals by the brand, represent an added bonus that ensures that the installation of the products always meets the demands of any project.

Performance that ensures comprehensive protection for life.
