Framing systems and pivot on secondary skin. There are many design approaches that can be done to create the ideal building facades. One of them is to create a secondary skin of a wooden structure (lattice). Field insulating outer or secondary skin usually serves to reduce the scorching sunlight and fresh air to maximize cross ventilation so that the space in the dwelling so much cooler.
Secondary skin can be made from various materials with various forms such as by using a framing system of arrangement (stacking) slats “iron wood” and a pivot hinge. This approach has been applied in the form of a vertical partition which is equipped by six shutters.
Construction secondary skin consists of modules measuring 90 cm x 50 cm steel and managed to give a mild expression and transparency while enabling activity “seen and see”.
In the manufacturing process, the steel framework in this shelter has been adapted to the size of the blades “iron wood” for a secondary skin. Every iron rods welded to form modules, and each module is connected by bolts which are then welded to be easily tuned. In particular module that serves as a window can be opened and closed, the installation uses a pivot hinge so that the shutters can be opened in different directions to the maximum to control the direction of the view to the outside.
The selected wood is “ironwood” which has resistance to weather higher so it is suitable for outdoor areas. The logs are then dried naturally, then made a hole diameter of 1 cm, and then mounted on the steel framing by using an iron screw and spacer made of large pipes. Each module framing filled by nine wooden slats and the installation, the wood is not riddled with nails or screws so easily removed and replaced when damaged but it does need to be careful so that the end result neat.
