Solar Shading

SAPA 4550


Box formed sun shades


SAPA 4550 Box solar shading is a simple and elegant complement to our 4150 facade system. The uncompromising form lends the facade a strong expression, modernism in aluminium. It is possible to design the solar protection in such a way that, for example, creating a modular area of sections is obtained.

The surface finish can additionally emphasise the form and expression of the profile. With the help of our decorative profiles, the appearance of the bearing profiles can be emphasised in order to harmonize with the architecture of the building.

Alternative solutions

Alternative 1, 2 and 3: The unattached louvers are installed directly on the bearing profile, which can be arranged vertically or horizontally. The vertical line can be additionally emphasised by installing decorative profiles from the Expressive family of the 4150 facade system.

Alternative 4: The louvers are screwed to the end/side profiles, which makes it possible to pre-fabricate sections. The sections are installed vertically on aluminium bearing profiles. This alternative gives an austere and homogenous appearance and a clear visual profile.

Alternative 1: Vertical

Alternative 2: Vertical

Alternative 3: Horizontal

Alternative 4: Vertical
