Solar shading benefits
What is solar shading?
Solar shading (sometimes referred to as 'solar control' or 'solar protection') is the term used to identify a number of systems to control the amount of heat and light from the sun admitted to a building. By doing so, solar shading devices can offer energy saving in various areas:
- They can reduce the amount of energy required for heating or cooling by keeping the excessive heat of the sun out and avoiding overheating
- They can also cut the amount of energy required for lighting, by optimizing the admittance of more free, natural daylight
- They will enhance indoor comfort and stimulate productivity
