Brise Soleil w/ Stainless Steel Support Bracing
NLC recently supplied and installed of 3 No. runs of horizontal brise soleil to a residential property in Caldecote. Each run was also fitted with a diagonal support bracing system due to the panel projection being over 1200mm from the face of the building.
Vertical & Horizontal Timber Brise Soleil
Western Red Cedar – Elliptical Blade Brise Soleil
With this particular project NLC were asked to design both vertical and horizontal Brise Soleil. Due to the size of the window and shading requirements the vertical panel was designed in a way in which was able to support the central two horizontal panels on the first floor run of shading. This enabled the shading system to be as effective as possible by completely shading a large portion of the first floor windows. The primary brackets were fixed directly onto the face of the brickwork with secondary supports coming off those for the horizontal brise soleil; and a box section frame for the vertical panel.
Vertical & Horizontal Solar Shading
Architectural Solar Shading – Culford Art School
The images below show one of NLC’s architectural shading systems which uses the contrast of light coloured Siberian Larch blades with dark powder coated aluminium frames & brackets. Due to the weight of the Larch the panels they were split into small sections which bolted to various support brackets off the curtain walling but once installed it gave the appearance of continuous panels. The horizontal panels were supported of the base of the of the vertical panels as there were no structural supports above the doorway.
Vertical Brise Soleil
Vertical Brise Soleil – Vauxhall Car Showroom
The below project which was installed in April 2019 is a small but effective continuous run of Brise Soleil complete with a fully welded corner section. As well as shading the large windows to the front of the showroom the Brise Soleil also acted as a nice subtle feature as it was powder coated to match the colour of the cladding.
Vertical Solar Shading
This project recently fabricated & installed by Nationwide Louvre Company consisted of timber Solar Shading panels but with two variations of how the shading system can work. Some of the panels were manufactured with the blades running horizontally and some were made with the blades spanning vertically due to the position of the windows and fixing methods. Each provided optimal shading for the windows.
NLC recently manufactured and installed this triangulated brise soleil for a clients home. The triangulated panel was fabricated using our V200 blade. A further set of horizontal panels were fabricated using our R150 blade and fitted above the bifolding doors.
Vertical Brise Soleil
Nationwide Louvre Company designed and fitted vertical brise soleil for a retail park in Whitby North Yorkshire. The brise soleil was fabricated using SOL210-gg-e elliptical blades mounted on a louvre curtain wall system.
