glass solar shading / for facades
Shadoglass is an external fixed or moveable glass louvred solar shading system, designed to reduce heat gains and glare whilst maximising the use of natural daylight.
Shadoglass may be installed either vertically or horizontally in front of the façade or on the roof. It can be either fixed or moveable. It is also suitable as a primary or secondary facade element to provide ventilation.
Features and benefits
A wide range of louvres – Shadoglass louvres are available in various colours, surface finishes and coatings to meet specific design requirements. Depending on the chosen type of glass, frit or film, the desired transmission of light and/or heat radiation can be accurately achieved for every specific application. The louvre spans depends on structural considerations and the kind of louvre blade selected.
A wide range of carrier systems - The various Shadoglass carrier systems are suited for use with glass, metal, fabric, wood and translucent acrylic louvres, as well as photovoltaic cells (see our Shadovoltaic page for further information).
Flexible controls - Shadoglass shading systems can be operated by linear actuators that have the capability to operate complete facades. A series of louvres are attached to a system of levers and push rods which link them to a control system. The louvres may be fixed at any angle and can rotate under motorised control within a range of up to 90⁰.
