The contractor opted to use specialist tensioned shading to overcome the challenge of the lack of fixings across the roof and the requirement for the systems to be completely hidden. They engaged with Guthrie Douglas to design and manufacture a solution which could be completely recessed behind the plasterboard fascia, with minimal maintenance requirements. The TESS™ 140 system is popular for its discrete stainless steel wire guides and flexible brackets which make it easy to design into the glazing surround. The single barrel mechanism keeps the fabric constantly under tension and produces a smooth, quiet travel.
