Solar shading systems
The WICSOLAIRE system is the best partner to meet the needs of sustainable design.
Modern architecture with extended glazed building skins offers increased energy gains from daylight, but requires an external light control that aligns energy savings and user comfort.
Guiding daylight into the building and controlling the heat input by solar radiation becomes essential in order to reduce the need for artificial light and air conditioning.
The appropriate glass alone is not sufficient to avoid overheating, in fact the orientation of the building, depending on latitude, area and sun inclination, must be taken into account so as to select the right sun shading system.
Aluminium blades are among the most innovative tools to control and modulate energy and excessive heat.
Depending on the case, WICSOLAIRE can be adapted in various options to the individual requirements and the architectural style of the building. The blades can be oriented horizontally or vertically at different angles, and are available either with a manual or with a motorized orientation.
WICSOLAIRE Small blades: – Profile width 100 mm or 150 mm – Blade holders for fixture in 4 angles (15° / 30° / 45° / 60°) – Vertical, slanted or horizontal application – Orientation of the blades horizontally or vertically – Easy assembly due to special fixture parts for every application
WICSOLAIRE elliptical blades: – Profile width 100 mm or 600 mm – Easy adaptation in size, assembly, application and orientation according to each project’s specific requirements – Fixing at angles from 0° to 45° – Vertical, slanted or horizontal application – Orientation of the blades horizontally or vertically – Easy assembly due to special fixture parts for every application – Some sizes available with a motorized orientation
WICSOLAIRE with photovoltaic cells: – The integration of photovoltaic units turns a passive sun shading system into an active solar power station – Blade module size 215 mm x 1200 mm
Two variations available: – 7 polycrystalline cells on white tedlar, 27 Wp – 7 monocrystalline cells on black tedlar, 28 Wp
Orientation to the sun in various angles in order to reach the maximum energy efficiency.
