External Fabrics – Reducing energy consumption and creating the perfect thermal environmentReducing energy consumption makes a significant impact on the environment. Exterior sunscreens are undoubtedly the most effective way of controlling sunlight. Sunscreens should not inhibit the advantages of glass – natural light, view and entry of solar energy in winter – but must avoid the creation of a greenhouse effect. The exterior fabric system controls the amount of sun radiation ie. before it reaches the window pane. The result is no dazzling light and no accumulation of heat indoors. Buildings using external sunscreens require less powerful air conditioning and the savings on costs, can be as much as 40% per year. Depending on the fabric choice up to 90% of the sun’s heat can be blocked by external screens.
The appearance of buildings, whether commercial or residential, is naturally important and with this in mind the Heliogreen range of external fabrics includes colours and finishes which compliment all architectural styles and façade finishes.
