Facade Applications for Conservation of Energy. Architectural shading systems that optimize daylight, reduce heat gain and conserve energy.
Aluminum structure with cement bonded fiberboard or high-pressure laminate panels
The system consists of movable vertical fins mounted on a ledge or external steel structure. Upto eight fins may be linked together for synchronized movement. The system is operated manually and the fins can be rotated and fixed in position at five different angles to optimize the amount of shade vs. natural light required at different times of the day and year.

Stainless steel structure with cement bonded fiberboard or high-pressure laminate panels
The system consists of overlapping horizontal slats or louvers that are positioned to move parallel to each other and to the glazed area of the façade. The system is operated manually. It is mounted on a ledge or external steel structure and is ideal for situations where the depth of the ledge is less than 600mm.
Stainless steel structure with exterior grade non-woven fabric screens
The system consists of movable fabric screens mounted on stainless steel cables stretched between ledges at top and bottom. The screens are moved up or down manually to moderate the amount of light or shade required depending on the time of day and time of year.
