Sun controls can add value to buildings

November 28, 2011 |

Custom-designed aluminum sun controls can help control energy costs, ensure occupants’ comfort, and contribute to sustainable-design projects earning LEED certification credits.

Available in cantilevered, horizontal, vertical, and inclined, sun controls can filter up to 80% of the sun’s heat and glare, cut wintertime radiant heat loss, and integrate natural light into new and retrofit building projects. Airolite sun controls are manufactured with all-welded assembly providing extra strength and durability. A wide selection of paint and anodized coatings applied after assembly offer protection against corrosion. BD+C
