Colt’s solar shading and daylight optimisation systems provide good quality natural daylight without solar glare, so as to improve internal conditions and reduce energy costs.
The benefits of solar shading systems
Solar shading systems eliminate excessive glare and reduce solar heat gains in the summer. In this instance, during the hotter months of the year, the building is protected against overheating by adjustable heat reflecting louvres, which are oriented according to the position of the sun. Radiation from the sun is partially absorbed and reflected by the louvres, which reduces heat gains within the building.
Why choose colt?
Careful selection of the most appropriate solar shading system is necessary in order to achieve the necessary functional performance and to meet the aesthetic requirements of the building.
Colt experts are able to work with the specifier, providing calculations and modelling to ensure the proposed solution offers the best performance while making a strong architectural statement.
Colt offers systems which consist of fixed or controllable louvres, in vertical or horizontal configurations, typically made either of aluminium, glass or textile fins.
Colt can provide a complete package of scheme design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
