Solar shading is a key element for improving the energy efficiency and daylight management of existing buildings and optimising the low-energy designs of new buildings.
Solar shading by blinds, shutters and awnings is a simple and effective way to improve the energy efficiency, daylight management and sustainability of existing buildings and to optimise the low-energy designs of new ones.
This proven technology is under-utilised in homes and many other buildings – but it can improve the comfort and general wellbeing of the occupants by helping to control the power of the sun, which is constantly changing throughout the day.
Solar shading systems enable windows and façades, which are static elements, to cope with dynamic weather conditions and the needs of the building’s occupants.
Good management of solar shading can help maximise solar heat gains in winter (reducing heating loads) and minimise these same gains in summer, reducing cooling loads – all whilst still providing good visual comfort to the occupants by controlling light levels.
With the added benefits of privacy, security, decoration and acoustic comfort, whichever way you look at it, shading makes sense.
