RFU Twickenham1 200x200Corporate visitors to Twickenham Stadium’s new South Stand will be having a chilled out time – no matter what happens on the pitch – thanks to solar shading from UK specialists Levolux.

A strong pack of state of the art solar shading solutions has been fitted at the development, to provide maximum solar shielding (up to 90%) for corporate entertainment areas and a hotel at the rear of the new stand.

RFU Twickenham2 200x200By combining Aerofoil Fins, Matrix XL, Walk on Brise Soleil systems and a bespoke rugby-ball shaped nosing, Levolux has created a stylish, efficient way to prevent solar gain and to help manage internal temperatures.

At the ground and first floor levels, 280mm horizontal aluminium Aerofoil Fins have been fitted to offer an attractive solar shading solution.

RFU Twickenham3 200x200Surrounding main corporate areas above, including luxury hotel rooms, Levolux’s Walk-on and Matrix XL Brise Soleil Systems are being used for ultra-efficient shading.

The Walk on Brise Soleil system also provides a rigid platform to allow maintenance work and window cleaning to be carried out safely whenever needed as well as providing solar shading protection.

Like many Levolux products they are virtually maintenance free too. The ongoing South Stand project, to increase capacity and provide luxury hotel, leisure and arts facilities at Twickenham Stadium, is scheduled to finish in 2009.
