Shading solutions can be an effective way to reduce energy consumption and improve comfort levels in a building.

Why choose external shading

External shading is widely considered the most effective approach to minimising heat gain, as it intercepts solar radiation before it reaches the window. With the ability to obstruct up to 90% or more of solar gain, it can lead to a large reduction in energy usage and costs over an extended period.
