The responsible design implications for home owners, Architects and Certifiers requires the assessment and implementation of green house reductions and energy saving initiatives.
External Sun Control (heat loss and heat gain is best address external to the building although there are practical instances where this cannot be done and therefore an internal solution can be considered with some efficiency compromise).
Windows, skylights, and eaves are considered the most likey building elements requiring protection.
Basix related products we manufacture and install are listed below.
Auriga Sun Awnings and Eyebrow Awnings. Various blade profiles available. This design suite employs continuous length blade profiles from say 1200mm over a West facing window to 18000mm facade protection over a series of windows. The options are many including a choice of 19 blade sizes, various geometric profiles such as square edged, elliptical and single skin profiles. The typical extension from the building alignment is 600mm, but we can manufacture to any projection and engineer the support members accordingly.
Operable Sun Shutters. Best described as a Structural Aluminium Plantation Shutter lying on a flat plane and housed within a choice of nested or fabricated support frames. The options are many including a choice of 10 blade sizes of elliptical profiles. The typical extension from the building alignment is 600mm, but we can manufacture to any projection and engineer the support members accordingly.
