Rectangular Blade Timber Brise Soleil – Oxford

Timber Shading – Lifestyle Centre, Oxford 

Another one of Nationwide Louvre Companies recent installations came in the form of a vertical Brise Soleil panel to the entrance of a new Lifestyle / Fitness Centre in Oxford. The panel is constructed from rectangular western red cedar vertical fins fixed to horizontal powder coated aluminium rails fixed back to the curtain walling system. All fixing details were kept to a minimum on this project so when viewed from the external face, no fixing points were visible for the supports or the blades themselves.  The horizontal box sections were supported directly off of the windows with the used of half hidden curtain walling brackets. The curtain walling brackets were installed prior to the capping so that all five fixings per bracket were hidden. The blades were then secured to the box section with folded angle brackets to the rear, again giving a very clean looking appearance when viewed from outside.
