Solar control, Sun Louvres & Sun Shading

For office buildings the optimum summer time working environment should be approximately 24°C+/-3°C.

During the hotter summer months solar radiation can increase internal building temperatures to as high as 35 – 40°C.

Solar shading, (also known as solar control, sun louvers, sun louvres, brise soleil & sun shading) can protect your environment, and increase energy efficiency by reducing the problems of solar glare and solar heat gain.

Solar shading – brise soleil can reduce heat gain by as much as 80%, Solar shading panels can also enhance the appearance of a building by making an architectural feature of the panels and the way they can be supported. The reducuction of direct sunlight through windows on to the buildings occupants will automatically help to give the perseption of a cooler enviroment.
