Pompeii Archeological Park: Corian® Exteriors preserves ancient buildings at the Championnet Complex

Naples-based Vittorio Pinto Interni designed Corian® Exteriors coverings to protect the mosaic floors at the Championnet complex from the sun and rain while making sure to not completely enclose them from natural light so that visitors could appreciate the ancient artwork and stonework of walls fashioned out of rocks that include lava, limestone and travertine. Two distinct roofs were made: the first, a simple rectangular shape and the second, a larger covering made of three layers. Each roof was devised with narrow rain gutters on the edges to divert runoff.

3M™ Sun Control Window Films provide a cost-effective solution for meeting building codes for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient or U-value. Window films are effective in reducing glare, providing occupant comfort by reducing hot spots from the sun’s heat and providing UV protection to building interiors. 3M Sun Control Window films reduce the solar heat gain coefficient of current windows to reduce the solar load entering a building. The building HVAC system will have a smaller load to cool, thus reducing operational energy use. 3M™ Thinsulate films can improve the U-value of the windows to reduce the need to run heating systems in the winter as well.
