Daylight system with solar protection
The micro sun shielding louvre reflects direct sunlight from paticular directions back outwards and allows diffuse daylight from the other directions through. The micro sun shielding louvre prevents the 'hot' light distribution from the sun from entering the interior space, reduces effects of glare from the sun and at the same time allows a maximum of 'cool' diffuse daylight to enter. The blocking/admission area of the louvre in relation to the daylight hemisphere comes about as a result of the special construction coupled with the exact setting of the louvre blades to the sun's orbit.
The 25 x 20cm louvre elements are firstly given a specular finish with ultra-pure aluminium within a high vacuum atmosphere. The next step involves connecting the louvre elements to larger units and cutting them to shape and size according to the building location and its architectural conditions.
In order to protect the specular louvre from external influences (dampness, dust etc), the inlet is bordered with a special edge profile. Glass discs are glued onto this edge profile and sealed with a sealing compound (thiolol, silicone).
The louvre inlet can be combined with different discs in order to satisfy most constructional requirements.
