One of the most important challenges of energy efficient concepts in buildings is to control the entrance of daylight. It is important to find the right balance in allowing sunlight to enter, while at the same time avoiding overheating of the building. The most efficient way to achieve this is by applying external sun screening systems. A correct implementation these systems will reduce the need for air conditioning, without compromising the advantages of daylight entering the building...
Reflection of the sun
To answer this specific need, Reynaers developed a range of Brise Soleil (BS) systems. These are aesthetical and practical solutions to protect buildings against an excess of sunlight. BS are louvre systems, mounted on the outside of the façade, offering the most effective sun shading solution.
The use of aluminium for such applications is obvious because of its ultimate durability, low maintenance, stability characteristics and of course, because of the aesthetical aspect. The design of the louvres gives a contemporary look to the building. This design can be highlighted by the use of specific colours or finishing of the elements.
