Solar Management systems include solar shading and daylight reflectors.
The amount of heat entering a building can be critical to the internal comfort of people and equipment within the space. By using solar management to reduce solar gain we can reduce the reliance on room comfort systems like air conditioning. By reducing reliance we can reduce costs both financially and environmentally.
These systems can be used to prevent too much daylight from getting into a space as well as heat. But they can also be used when daylight is low to maximise what is available. The third function of reflectors is to use them with artificial lighting to create effects when required.
These systems are used where there are large areas of glass exposed to sunlight. Using different shapes sizes and materials these systems will attenuate solar gain. Sunscreens like this can be provided in sizes to fit the project. They can also incorporate modules for service integration.
Both sunscreens and reflectors can be made to specific designs and to fit the aesthetic of the wider project.
