Vertical & Horizontal Solar Shading – Culford Art School

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.
