Solar Control: Sun Louvers

Sun Louvers

External sun louvers integrate light control into the building envelope by deflecting sunlight before it enters. Louver configurations are as striking as they are effective.

  • Wide range of fin profiles for vertical and horizontal applications
  • Fixed, adjustable, and motorized options


Solar Control: External Shades

External Shades

From louvered blinds and roller shades to custom-designed solutions, external shading systems can be raised, lowered, and tilted for daylighting and control of glare and heat gain.

  • Automated and sun-tracking systems add to efficiency of building envelope
  • External shades are up to three times more effective at controlling heat gain
  • Mechanisms and slats/fabrics are engineered to resist wind and weather


Solar Control: Exterior Screens

Exterior Screens

Fixed architectural elements - often composed of galvalum or similar metal - that provide shading, screen unwanted views, and add visual interest to the fašade.

  • Variety of profiles and sizes up to 5 meters for a wide range of aesthetic effects
  • Changes in perforation enable variations in openness


Solar Control: Skylight Systems
