SCF is based on a multilayer façade element with a wider cavity. Static pressure compensation and preventing condensation in the cavity is achieved in this system without the need for power supplies or control gear. The “power” comes purely from the natural thermodynamic laws already in force. A continuous exchange of air takes place through natural ventilation at the base of each element and further openings near the top. In the Principal Place Commercial project the cavity is also wide enough to accommodate sunblinds. Large SCF elements measuring up to 7.5m x 4m are being fitted by seele on the topmost floor of the building.
