Motorised Brise Soleil
Motorised Brise Soleil employed for solar shading and privacy screening
Vertically Mounted Screening Blades
In this configuration, the louvre blades are stood “on end” and built into a frame which stands off a little way from the building (this allows for access to the glass for cleaning). This type of shading is often used when an architectural feature is required to shade a floor to ceiling window, it is generally offered as a fixed blade solution. However a motorised version of this system has been successfully deployed across a number of branches of a high street bank in Ghana
Brise Soleil Horizontally Mounted Canopy
The most popular of all Brise Soleil configurations, horizontally mounted canopies are generally mounted immediately above the glazed area that they are shading. Most horizontal canopies have a projection of between 500 mm and 1,500 mm, which is generally more than adequate to shade the windows or doors below. Options include joining a number of canopies together to form a continuous run, corner units, and overhead support arms.
The brackets that fix the canopies to the wall can either be fixed to the structure before render is applied (generally the case on a new build) or in the case of retro fitting to existing buildings, can be fixed to the external finish. In both cases the brackets are powder coated to match the rest of the system.
Sun-Tracking Photo Voltaic Louvres
Motorised Sun-Tracking Photo Voltaic Louvres
This product is specifically designed to perform two jobs. Firstly to offer solar shading throughout the day to glazing mounted underneath the system, and secondly to generate power by means of photovoltaic cells built into the louvre blades. The louvre blades are created from aluminium frame profiles which hold solar panels which are made up from the photovoltaic cells.
