Louvres, Overhangs & Trees
It is more effective to block the suns heat from reaching your glass window or wall than dealing with the heat once it has entered your building environment. The right type of shading device must be chosen to avoid compromising natural light entering your building. Shading may be provided by a shading system or feature design that allows flexibility for seasonal changes or daily weather changes that may occur. For example, North facing windows should be shaded with devices that provide protection from the summer sun and, where required, allow the sun to enter the building in winter. In this case, shading can be provided by adjustable fabric pergolas, awnings, louvre’s, shutters or trees.
