Energy Saving Solar Shading

  

Dynamic solar shading uses technology to control external and/or internal solar shading devices such as shades, curtains and blinds by means of an intelligent building system. It receives real-time input from various sensors (sun, wind, temp, presence, etc) and combines this input with pre-set data and thresholds based on the requirements from both facility managers and tenants.

The system also allows for “personal override” allowing individual, temporary, adjustments to solve any potential conflict between the interest of the building and its occupants.

Dynamic solar shading revolves around the facade of a building. The facade is where the outdoors and indoors meet, where natural and man-made environments come together.

Outside climatic conditions continuously vary during the day/night or season. Inside working and living conditions must be as stable and comfortable as possible and meet occupants' needs, personal preferences and be beneficial to the building’s energy performance.


 

Dynamic solar shading can significantly contribute to any building energy management solution, for the following main reasons:

  • It will generate energy savings for cooling and heating by managing the energy flow through the glass 
  • It supports a healthier indoor environment by bringing well-being and productivity benefits caused by improvedvisual comfort, thermal comfort and access to natural daylight
  • It enhances the aesthetics of the facades by aligning and coordinating the sun protection devices
  • An indirect benefit, for the building owner, is the potential contribution to higher marks in various green rating systems – like LEED, BREEAM, Green Star, Miljöbyggnad etc
