Coastal living

Automated Solar Screens

There are few locations as stunning as our beautiful coastline. Building and living on the edge of Britain is a dream for many of us but a happy reality for our customers on the west coast.

This brand-new build makes the most of its perfect position – providing stunning views of the ocean via oversize doors and windows. Benefitting from an abundance of natural light reflected from the water and miles of pale sand, our customer’s architect advised a solar solution to help them manage the inevitable solar gain from contemporary glazing schemes.

Hi-performance screen fabric was specified for multiple screens positioned strategically around the property. Our sales specialists recommended black 20/30 mesh – a specific solar fabric that blocks up to 65% of UV rays. An external fitting provided the greatest solar performance value and meant that this slightly finer mesh could be used to preserve gorgeous views of the landscape.

From the outside, the automated solar screens provide an element of privacy, which although not specified, adds to the feeling of comfort that comes from knowing you’re not over-looked. Cassettes and drop bars were made to colour-match door frames – precisely – ensuring a discreet external aesthetic.

In total, the property now benefits from seven remote-controlled bespoke Executive Power Screens: 3 x 2.7m screens and 4 x 2.4m screens.
