Levolux was selected once again for its quality and reputation, this time to fit the internationally acclaimed University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), with its custom Solar Shading solution.
The Levolux Solar Shading system consisted of 20 horizontal untreated Oak Timber Fins, each measuring 240mm wide. The Fins are arranged in three vertical stacks, providing protection to the glazed atrium and entrance area, with a series of Aluminium Fins projecting horizontally above the upper floor windows of the building.
The combined Solar Shading system helps to reduce solar heat gain, thereby reducing the need for energy-sapping air conditioning.
The highly efficient Solar Shading system comprises of contrasting materials which combine effectively to enhance the aesthetics of the building.
Oak Timber Fins were designed to provide an eye-catching, attractive feature around the glazed entrance area, while in contrast, the grey polyester powder coated Aluminium Fins were designed to blend in with the curtain walling.
All systems from Levolux are backed with the company’s design, manufacture and installation package. The company’s experience in bespoke Solar Shading is second to none worldwide.READ MORE
