Specification

The Solex™ LINEAR solar shading system is designed to offer either a ‘continuous’ or ‘modular’ shading appearance when fitted to the building and is suitable for interfacing with most primary structures including window and curtain wall systems, steel work, Glulam, timber and masonry.

Solid ‘Z’ shaped blade profiles inclined at 45 degrees are fixed back to ‘single wing’ or ‘double wing’ rafter support arms using the integrated ‘clip-LOK’ carrier railing system, to avoid the use of mechanical fixings and permit blade movement caused by expansion. Extruded top cap sections are positioned over the rafter support arms as an aesthetic feature and for added security to the blade profiles under high wind loads and potential theft or vandalism. The shading blades can span up to 2500mm unsupported, thereafter mid-span rafter support arms are introduced to reduce deflection.

Solex™ LINEAR shading systems are generally supplied as horizontal shading structures with the whole of the projection arranged as a simple cantilever.

Diagonal tubular struts can be introduced between the building structure and the shading system to add to the visual effect of the product or where larger cantilevers are specified, to reduce the system service loads back to the building, particularly when connection to brickwork is required.

Polyester powder coated or anodised finishes are available in a wide range of colours.

Brackets are usually manufactured from profile cut aluminium alloy, tailored to suit each project’s individual requirements and loading conditions.

They are manufactured bespoke for each project and consequently the bracket design can be altered to suit curtain walling or window systems and most primary structures.

Mild or Stainless Steel brackets can be provided to accommodate more significant structural loadings.
