Motorised Brise Soleil
Motorised Brise Soleil employed for solar shading and privacy screening
Vertically Mounted Ladder Screening
Vertically mounted systems offer a high degree of solar shading in certain circumstances, but can also offer security and privacy functionality. Although generally offered as a fixed blade system, vertically mounted ladder systems lend themselves quite well to being motorised, offering a more comprehensive level of screening, and allowing the customer to adjust the blade angle.
Vertically mounted ladder systems are quite often used to shade runs of curtain wall, particularly in commercial buildings that have large areas of glazing such as car showrooms, office blocks or in schools. The blade size, pitch and angle will determine the amount of shading in any given situation.
Fixing this type of system to a run of curtain wall needs to be planned well in advance, as the mounting brackets have to be incorporated into the curtain wall mullions before they are installed.
