Horizontal Brise Soleil with Stainless Steel Feature Wires – Prologis Business Park, Coventry
The project shown below consisted of NLC’s horizontal Brise Soleil panels fixed to primary support bracketry which is mostly hidden behind the cladding. Vertical stainless steel feature wires were used to join the ground floor brise soleil to the first floor brise soleil.
Vertical Brise Soleil Blades – St Georges School
NLC’s latest project came in the form of our 300mm elliptical blade system being used vertically with each blade being individually fixed to horizontal linear rail supports. There were 6 separate runs on this particular project all varying in length with the biggest run being 25 meters long. The large blades provided excellent shading results for the classrooms on the ground floor and first floor of this modular building. On completion the customer was so pleased that the planned extension was brought forward and work started immediately.
Vertical Aluminium Solar Shading
The images below show a project NLC has recently completed on a luxury residential apartment complex in Shepherds bush.
These vertical aluminium solar shading panels were fabricated using our SOL300 elliptical blades. The blade pitch was originally set at 45 degrees however these particular blades were fitted using a rotating socket allowing for up to 90 degrees rotating meaning the residents can rotate the blades to follow the sun throughout the day to keep solar gain to a minimum and block the windows for privacy.
Nationwide Louvre Company’s latest project was to fabricate and install a louvre screen on the roof of an office development in Stratford. This was designed to screen the air conditioning equipment on the rooftop whilst adding an additional layer of security.
The louvre screen features one full welded louvre door complete with lock allowing for easy access to the equipment for any maintenance that may be required.
Aluminium Brise Soleil – Etonbury Academy
NLC has recently supplied and installed a number of horizontal brise soleil to a new academy in Etonbury. These panels were fabricated using our aluminium SOL120 elliptical blades to ensure maximum performance and strength.
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.
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.
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. All the framework and bracketry were polyester powder coated aluminium to match the cladding surrounding the glazing.
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.
