    The Brief

    When construction was already underway, we were asked to provide options for solar shading for long strip windows.

     

    Key Challenges

    • To engineer a structural fixing of 700mm deep window hoods through extruded aluminium cladding.
    • To comply with the requirement of different colours to each side of the window hood assembly.

     

    Our Approach

    We designed a very robust window hood consisting of a two-piece extruded aluminium mounting system, and incorporated twin-skin sheet metal covers.

     

    Result

    Our purpose-built system provides the necessary shade, while complying with the original architectural requirements.
