Solar Shading/Brise Soleil system

Application: Suitable for offices, schools and other commercial or public buildings, both new and refurbished.

Kingfisher’s solar shading system provides external shading to help with the control of solar heat gain through glazing. It is designed as a complete system, which can be installed in various configurations.

The system has continuous fixed blades, normally installed on support arms projecting horizontally above areas of glazing. All the main components are aluminium for long life with good corrosion resistance.

Why use solar shading?
In sunny weather, solar heat gains through glazing can represent a substantial input of heat to a building. Apart from the direct solar heating, re-radiated heat becomes trapped inside the building, increasing the internal temperature even more. Ventilation rates or cooling loads must then be increased to maintain comfortable conditions.
