Subject to the most seismic activity in the world, Chile is regularly shaken by earthquakes, the most violent of which reached 9.5 on the Richter scale in 1960.
For Solar Decathlon, Team Fenix has designed so-called evolving emergency housing, which can be developed into a permanent home.
Casa Fenix calls upon the country’s natural resources with its timber frame, which is particularly suited to earthquake resistant construction.
Live from Solar Decathlon:
Casa Fenix asserts itself as a practical response to emergency situations resulting from extreme natural disasters. Acronym of “For Emergency Natural Impact eXtreme”, Fenix comprises prefabricated timber-framed modules, which are intuitively and quickly assembled by volunteers assigned to disaster areas.
Built at La Rochelle University to reduce environmental impact (saving equivalent to 39 tonnes of CO2), the prototype presented at Solar Decathlon is a survival module: its structure and shell are made of lightweight components, which can be easily transported and assembled by non-specialists.
Soltis 86 Screen as indoor solar protection
Representing the ideal compromise between efficient solar protection and light flux, Serge Ferrari Soltis 86 composite screen eliminates up to 88% of solar radiation, while conserving the essential natural light contribution.
• The reception area is protected by six sunscreens made of Soltis 86 Screen composite material: five 2.6 x 1.6 m internal blinds and one 4.70 x 6.72 m blind.
• The south- and west-facing doors and windows are also fitted with Soltis 86 Screen sunscreens: seven 1.21 x 0.95 m internal blinds and four 2.27 x 1.13 m blinds.
Soltis 86 Screen is lightweight, durable and 100% recyclable through Serge Ferrari’s Texyloop® operational recycling network.
