Our 145mm extruded aluminium elliptical aerofoil, set at 165mm pitch. The blades are discreetly connected to aluminium extruded rectangular side arm, finished with aluminium box section nosing, manufactured into complete panels off-site. The solution required coordination between our engineers and client engineer to develop a system which would connect directly to metsec lined timber frame around windows. Cantilever supported using aluminium tie rods.
Our 300mm extruded aluminium elliptical aerofoil, set at 400mm pitch. The blades are discreetly connected to aluminium side arm. Brise Soleil is supported via aluminium brackets connected to steel carrying integrated weldmesh walkway. Walkway and solar shading were pre-manufactured and installed in complete prefabricated panels.
