Solar integrated sunbreakers

Due to increasing employment of glazing, every building requires a detailed study regarding solar irradiation, light transmission and energy saving. Beside analyzing aluminium profiles and glass characteristics, sunbreaker’s application might be an important element to integrate and improve use of glazed curtain wall.

Several types of sunbreakers are available in Zanetti’s portfolio: internal or external, in textile or aluminium, with extruded profiles or folded sheets, with stainless steel cables or aluminium profile guides, fixed or movable, automatically or manually movable. The choice depends by various aspects: aesthetic, materials, solar-barrier level, location on façade, whether conditions, building destination.
