Shadoglass glass louvred solar shading system

Shadoglass is an external fixed or moveable glass louvred solar shading system, designed to reduce heat gains and glare whilst maximising the use of natural daylight.

Shadoglass may be installed either vertically or horizontally in front of the façade or on the roof. It can be either fixed or moveable. It is also suitable as a primary or secondary facade element to provide ventilation.

System types (for sizes, see bottom of this page)

  • LS-1 is centrally pivoted, intended for wide spans, and incorporates a central aluminium torsion tube incorporating the louvre brackets along the length of the louvre for additional support.
  • LS-2 is primarily intended for small spans or where frequent anchor points are available. It provides minimum obstruction to the glass area, thereby maximizing daylight and enhancing the view to the outside.
  • LS-3 is centrally pivoted, intended for very wide spans. An aluminium clamping system is fixed along to the short edges of the louvre blades.
  • LS-4 is a back hinged system with hidden control mechanisms integrated within the main vertical supports. This enables a seamless continuous appearance when viewed from the outside, since the supports are installed to the back of the louvres.
  • LS-5 is a centre pivoted system which provides maximum transparency. An aluminium clamping system is fixed along to the short edges of the louvre blades.

Structural considerations

  • All spans subject to wind load calculations. Deflection of the louvre is limited to span / 100. Deflection of supporting structure is limited to span / 100.
