Glass solar shading for facades
Features and Benefits
- Available as standard in widths of up to 600mm.
- All support components manufactured from corrosion-resistant extruded aluminium alloy with stainless steel fixings.
- Fixed or controllable.
- May permit the integration of photovoltaic cells.
Colt Shadoglass is a fixed or controllable external glazed solar shading system (glazed louvre system) that may be installed either vertically or horizontally in front of the façade.
This louvre system is also suitable as a primary or secondary facade element for ventilation.
It may be combined with other Colt products such as rooflights and glazed facades. Also Coltlite for glass louvre - natural glass louvred ventilators - could be of interest to you.
A Shadoglass controllable or fixed glass louvre shading system can reduce solar heat gain, lower air conditioning running costs, and lessen glare whilst maximising the use of natural daylight. Depending on the chosen type of glass, frit or film, light and radiation transmission can be accurately achieved for every specific application.
Shadoglass glass louvre shading systems are operated by linear actuators that have the capability to operate complete facades. The glass louvres are available in various colours, surface finishes and coatings to meet specific design requirements. Photovoltaic cells may be integrated into the glass louvres so as to obtain further energy benefits.
