We are often asked if Barrisol is only for commercial applications. The reality is that Barrisol is a fantastic product for both commercial and residential projects. Barrisol's quick, dust free installation, it's ability to incorporate lighting, to create custom shapes/sizes, and to be highly reflective while still being acoustic, makes Barrisol the perfect match for a home renovation.

Barrisol® Clim®: for clean, healthy air and a constant temperature.
Barrisol® Clim® evens out the temperature of both your walls and the air, wherever you are in the room.
The extremely low temperature difference between the head and the feet of an occupant (1.0°C in heating mode and 0.5°C in cooling mode), alongside the almost imperceptible air speed, means that Barrisol® Clim® can provide unparalleled comfort.
Unlike “static” air conditioning ceilings (which use hydraulic tubes), Barrisol® Clim® offers almost unlimited power.
The admissible power of 600W/m2 while heating and 550W/m2 while cooling ensures that it can meet your heating and cooling needs, wherever you are on the planet.

"The Contemporary Art museum of Munich was inaugurated last May. Its architecture is based on a design and ecological concept. The architect Sauerbruch Hutton chose Barrisol Lumière® to light and enhance the exposed works of the XXth century among which the Andy Wahrol's famous paintings. Indeed, Barrisol Lumière® diffuses the light in a sweet and homogeneous way on the whole exhibition space. Furthermore, the Barrisol sheets are 100%, recyclable and are so perfectly adapted in this modern building turned to sustainable environment." - Courtesy of www.barrisol.ca.
The design of the Vancouver UBC Aquatic Center (which includes a vertical Barrisol translucent screen) is featured this month in the Canadian Architect Magazine (August 2018 Issue, page 24 - 29). The article, High Water Mark, written by Vancouver based journalist Hadani Ditmars is worth a read. Follow the link below to view it online.
Here is an excerpt from the article, which includes a mention of the Barrisol translucent screen...
"Another distinctive element is the use of light. At the juncture delineating the family and recreational area to the west and the competition area to the east, a series of Y-shaped structural columns support a six-meter-wide skylight. The shifting sun casts patterns on the Barrisol screen, offering a textural element that helps mitigate any sense of sterility in the super white environment. The textile like feel of the material, as well as the humidity resistant large-scale tegular acoustic paneling system help to reduce noise and glare.
The entire building is effectively a tabula rosa, a screen reflecting the surrounding environment, and at night it's interior illumination - especially it's suspended LED lighting - transforms it into an architectural lantern."
