Aluminium Solar Shading

Aluminium Solar Shading – Somerhill School

On the Somerhill School project Nationwide Louvre Company designed various shading panels to suit the requirement of each location on the building. As shown on the images there were multiple fixing methods used and also different types of panels. The two large triangular panels and the small square panel between them were fabricated using aluminium box section frames complete with bird-beak brackets and 120mm elliptical blades. The panels in the long run down the side of the building were manufactured using laser cut 5mm thick side frames with 120mm elliptical blades screwed to them from either end, supported by vertical box section posts. Horizontal Brise Soleil panels were used above the entrance and reception window and these were fabricated in the same way with the 5mm thick side frames. The small panel into the opening at floor level were also fabricated with 5mm thick side frames and it was fixed directly to the brickwork through both frames.

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.

Louvre Screen – Premier Inn, Cardiff

Nationwide Louvre Company has recently fabricated and installed a Louvre screen for Premier Inn, Cardiff. The Louvres were fabricated using our UPVC Nod. Z blades and features two louvre doors, one door designed with a notch to open over existing stairs.

 

Brise Soleil

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.
