Horizontal Solar Shading – White Hart Lane, London
One of Nationwide Louvre Company’s latest projects has been the design, manufacture and installation of 4 No. runs of Solar Shading which have been fitted to a new building for a school in London. The primary brackets on this project were installed prior to the rendering being completed which meant that only a small stub was left to secure the panels to, hiding the majority of the brackets / fixings. There were five individual runs in total consisting of 3-5 panels in each.
Vertical Brise Soleil – Romsey Sports Facility
NLC recently completed the installation of these runs of Vertical Brise Soleil to a brand new Sports Facility. The primary brackets were installed prior to the cladding so there is minimal bracketry on show giving a nice neat finish to the building.
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.
