Solar Shading & Brise Soleil

“Solar Shading”, also know as “Brise Soleil”, can be an important part for any building as it prevents direct sun glare thus reducing over-heating which makes a building more energy efficient - reducing the energy requirements of the building by up to 15%. Solar shading can also reduce solar glare by letting in natural light at the same time as reducing the contrast ratios. This increases visual comfort that can often lead to an increase in worker satisfaction and productivity. ​

“Solar Shading” systems always provide an aesthetically pleasing addition to the building. They are often used solely for their aesthetic properties as they offer the opportunity of differentiating one building façade from another.

Solar shading systems can come in different formats such as; Standard  Projecting solar shade, Louvred/ Stacked Solar shade, Vertical Solar Fin and Horizontal Solar Fins.
