Rectangular Blade Timber Brise Soleil – Oxford
Timber Shading – Lifestyle Centre, Oxford
Another one of NLC’s recent installations came in the form of a vertical shading panel to the entrance of a new Lifestyle / Fitness Centre in Oxford. The panel consisted of western red cedar vertical fins fixed to horizontal powder coated aluminium rails. 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 cleats to the rear, again giving a very clean looking appearance when viewed from outside.
