Sun Shades / Louvers

Sunshades are an attractive means to obstruct undesired sun and heat gain while allowing natural light into your building. While most commonly used as a shelf above windows, sunshade louvers can also be mounted vertically in front of windows. The objective of a sunshade is to block the entry of direct sunshine into your building throughout the cooling season, while allowing direct sunlight during the heating season. Sunshades should blend with other building design elements and provide the desired design intent.
