Description

Colt Shadometal is an external fixed or moveable fabricated metal louvre solar shading system, designed to reduce heat gains and glare whilst maximising the use of natural daylight.

Shadometal may be installed either vertically or horizontally in front of the façade or on the roof. It can be either fixed or moveable. It is also suitable as a primary or secondary facade element to provide ventilation.

Shadometal louvres are available in various colours, surface finishes and coatings to meet specific design requirements.

Shadometal shading systems are operated by linear actuators that have the capability to operate complete façades. Such systems comprise a series of louvres mounted onto a building which are attached to a system of levers and push rods which link them to a control system. The louvres may be fixed at any angle and rotate under motorized control.

Features/ benefits:

  • Shadometal is entirely customisable.
  • Reduces energy consumption, with high solar shading performance and reduction of glare to the internal space. Depending on the chosen arrangement of perforations to the louvre blade, light and radiation transmission can be accurately achieved for every specific application.
  • Movable option: can be operated by linear actuators that have the capability to operate complete facades.
  • Of robust, corrosion resistant materials.
  • Can be provided in modular pre-assembled form to reduce installation costs.

Product Options

Size:

  • Blade span: Discuss with Colt what can be achieved without any additional supporting structure.
  • Blade width: As above

Materials:

  • Louvre blades: Solid metal or perforated sheet. Colt can advise.
  • Side support arms, mounting brackets and support struts: Aluminium.
  • Fasteners are stainless steel.
  • Aluminium components can be supplied with mill finish or polyester powder coated. Consult with Colt for availability of colours and to obtain samples.

Controls:

  • ICS 4-Link: Provides accurate solar control and is particularly suited to larger projects. The system continually calculates the position of the sun and together with internal temperature and lighting sensors, controls the position of the louvres. Remote operation is also available via an internal modem interface.
  • Soltronic: A simplified version of ICS 4-Link, suitable for small to medium sized projects.

Fixing:

Consult with Colt for recommendations and details. Shadometal can be provided in modular pre-assembled form to reduce time on site.
