Sunshades (also known as brise soleil) are growing more popular in new building designs due to their aesthetic quality and sun-limiting functionality. Ametco offers quality architectural Sunshades in galvanized steel and aluminum bar grille design, extruded aluminum tubing design, steel and aluminum louver design, and perforated aluminum design.
Sunshades designs allow varying amounts of light to penetrate into the building, and custom fabrication is available. Aluminum and galvanized steel Sunshades are powder coated in one of 15 color choices for durability and appearance. All of Ametco’s sunshades are designed as specified by ASCE 7-10.

Basic Wind Speed:   115 mph (for Structural Importance Factor II(1.0)

Structural Importance Factor: II(1.0)(failure presents a potential hazard to human life)

Ground Snow Load: 25 psf. (The leeward drift loading must be investigated for buildings greater than 40’-0" wide)

Atmospheric Ice: ¾" thick @ 40 mph wind speed

The maximum standard panel lengths will range from 60" to 144" depending on Sunshade type, with the maximum length illustrated on the concept drawings. The maximum panel depth will be 3'0" to 4'0" again dependent on Sunshade style.

 

Galvanized Steel & Aluminum Bar Grille Sun shades are manufactured from 2" x 3/16" bars on 1-3/16" centers.

Extruded Aluminum Sunshades are available in four styles and are fabricated from aluminum extrusions. Each aluminum sunshade is manufactured to order.

Fixed Louver Sunshades can be fabricated in steel, aluminum, or stainless steel and provide 80% & 100% direct visual screening. Aluminum Louver Sunshades are manufactured from heavy-duty aluminum extrusions for strength and visual appeal.

Perforated Aluminum Sunshades begin with a 1/8" thick aluminum sheet that provides from 10% to 50% open air. There are numerous patterns and styles of perforations to choose from.
