Photovoltaic sunshades solve the problem of over-glazing in buildings, providing a sunshade, and at the same time converting solar radiation into electricity that can be used to power the building. Additionally, they are an aesthetic architectural complement. The possibility of using tinted glass and powder coating of the aluminum structure in any RAL color, allows the system to be integrated into both existing and newly designed buildings.
In buildings whose façades are made of brick walls, the EGS-LAM sun protection system gives the structure "lightness" and often creates their basic architectural value. Used in buildings implementing the idea of "glass houses" create their coherent image and emphasize their unique character. In any case, being a source of clean renewable energy, they contribute to the energy efficiency of buildings to a much greater extent than conventional sun protection systems. As a result, in the certification process carried out, for example, according to BREEAM® and LEED® standards, they can obtain higher ratings.
