Horizontal Solar Shading – New Office Space, Cannock

The images below show the latest work NLC have completed at a brand new office development in Cannock. This is the fourth installation on this project, directly beneath the original installation. NLC were asked to design the shading so that it would cover the entrance / doorway which meant it had to be fixed to the curtain walling system. Clear plastic sheets were bolted to the top of the two panels directly above the doors to prevent rainwater dropping from the panels onto visitors and staff as they enter the building. Stainless steel cantilever arms have been used for additional support.

Nationwide Louvres recently completed the third phase of Brise Soleil installation at St Georges School in Gravesend. The third phase of installation included two  complete sections of Brise Soleil to the brand new extension of the school and also an additional 6 blades to one of the existing runs. New sections of Brise Soleil were manufactured and installed exactly as previous phase, horizontal box section rails were fixed to the face of the rendered wall via small support stubs to the rear. 300mm elliptical blades were then secured to the front face of the box section into fixed angle brackets set at 0 degrees.

NLC installed this vertical Brise Soleil to a Commercial / Industrial Unit in Dawlish. The bracketry was installed directly into the nosecone of the curtain walling. The panels then sat vertically in front of the windows to provide shading to the top 2.5 meters of window. Making a big difference to how much light / heat gets into the building, especially during the warmer summer months.

Horizontal Brise Soleil – Residential Property, Kent

Horizontal Brise Soleil – Residential Property, Kent

Nationwide Louvre installed the Brise Soleil shown in the images below to a residential property in Kent. The Brise Soleil provided a high level of shading performance for the upstairs bedroom / bathroom. This is down to the panels projection from the building and also the overhang at either end of the run. This frame-less design on the ends of the run reduces the amount of support bracketry on show and just a simple elliptical shaped end cap has been used to cover the end of each blade. All aluminium components were polyester powder coated to match the cladding.
