Use of solar control louvres

The shading is an element placed in proximity of the windows fixtures, outside or inside, which has the function of shielding the inside environments from an excessive solar radiation.

uso di sistemi frangisole The sun slats depending on weather conditions can be differently oriented. Their position, in fact, can change at different times of the day and at different solar irradiance.

The materials most used are PVC, wood, terracotta, aluminum; their choice essentially depends on the tastes of the customer and the climatic and aesthetic requirements .

The use of solar control louvres however, is not limited to the vertical surfaces. In many cases this element is used as a cover system of perfectly horizontal structures, such as pergolas or gazebos placed in outdoor locations.

The solar control louvres used as perfectly horizontal surfaces coatings must be loadtight, ie resistant to loads of rain and snow.

A company that produces loadtight solar control louvres, adjustable, is Studio 66, which with the models FOLD BLADE 160 and 200 makes the most of the sunlight and the wind.

The model Blade 160 is a solar control louvres completely watertight, it has a slight inclination of 0.5% required for the water downflow, not perceptible because placed inside the horizontal structure.
An important feature of this model of solar control louvre, which ensures also a perfect operation, is its upper surface, in fact, the slats are completely smooth.

In this way leaves and debris of all kinds are swept away by wind and rain, keeping the coating always clean.

Frangisole orientabile Studio 66 BLADE 160 can be mounted on any structure of aluminum, steel or wood, paying attention to the load.

In case of rain, the coating automatically closes hermetically squeezing the seals of the blade, avoiding heat loss.
In this way it is ensured a good seal of the coating.

The structures are made in aluminum tubes 200x100x4 mm or 220x140x4 mm, until a maximum span of 6 meters without suffering curves. The opening is adjustable and the angle of variation goes from 0° to 135°, always maintaining the shading in the space below.

This system of shading can integrate with existing structures or can be installed with its own supporting structure made of aluminum, which also provides for a system of integrated gutters, for the drainage of rainwater.
The angle of movement ranges from 0° to 90° and it always has a motorized operation. Furthermore, this particular cover fully retractable can be also equipped with a rain sensor for automatic closing of the slats in case of sudden precipitation.
