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.
NLC recently manufactured and installed this triangulated brise soleil for a clients home. The triangulated panel was fabricated using our V200 blade. A further set of horizontal panels were fabricated using our R150 blade and fitted above the bifolding doors.
