Design for the Sun
Shading is a key passive design element in eco-friendly architecture.
This website outlines the comprehensive shading options offered by the LouvreTec range of opening roofs, sun louvers and shutter systems.
The options on offer far exceed the beneﬁts gained by shading alone. Shelter, protection, privacy – the creation of genuine year round usable outdoor spaces are all beneﬁts to be gained.
LouvreTec can now offer modern multi-functional systems suitable for and adaptable to most sun control applications.
We will work with you to optimise individual needs for solar, shelter and privacy design issues in your project. This ensures that our customers can enjoy a well designed ﬁnal product and comfortable spaces.
The Suns Path
Plan for the sun
When planning external sun control systems it is important to consider:
The practical application
Good sun control is a cornerstone element of modern eco-friendly architecture. Buildings must be pleasant to live and work in all year round.
Spiralling energy costs combined with issues of renewable resources underline the need to maximise solar beneﬁts.
Energy costs in heating / cooling buildings designed with little or no thought towards sun control is ongoing and enormous. The “one-off” cost of a well designed louver system will work with zero (ﬁxed blades) or minimal (adjustable blades) ongoing costs every day of the year for the life of the building.
LouvreTec's modern multi-purpose louver systems will not only function efﬁciently but also enhance any style or period of architecture.
