BRISE SOLEIL SOLAR SHADING

Brise Soleil solar shading

The use of Brise Soleil or Sun Screens to reduce solar heat gain through glazed facades is now recognised as an important consideration in modern buildings. Countries situated in northern latitudes such as Ireland, must deal with the sun’s angle being lower, which results in more exposure through vertical glazing causing greater heat gains.

LOUVRE SYSTEMS

Louvre

Louvre panels and screens are popular with designers for many applications on modern buildings. Louvre systems generally provide the passage of air to and from HVAC and other building systems, while protecting these openings against rain. Louvre screens are also used to conceal HVAC and other heavy equipment from view. In many cases, these systems are used purely for aesthetic effect.
