Brise Soleil

Brise Soleil also known as brise-soleil, “French for sun breaker” are architectural enhancements designed to reduce the heat gain within a building by defecting and diffusing sunlight from the sunniest and most south facing façade of a building. Originally found mostly in hotter continents, where overheating is more common placed within architecture; Brise Soleil are rapidly becoming standardised within all areas of modern architecture due to the rapid expansion of fully glazed building envelopes. Airsculpt-Façades designer’s engineers are able to offer a full range of façade solar shading solutions including both standardised and bespoke.

Brise Soleil Options

At Airsculpt-Façades we know that one size does not necessarily fit all, and that on other occasions an off the shelf solution is a more realistic approach to what is needed. That is why we have developed a customisable standard option “AFSS-Brise-Soleil” which allows for significant design and installation adjustability to meet the vast majority of requirements.

However, we are more than happy and adept at working with clients and architects to design and developing bespoke Brise Soleil solutions to suite specific architectural aspirations; altering the universally accepted horizontal projections that extend from a building’s facade. With full in house production and fabrication facilities we also have the opportunity to design and develop prototype blades and panelling, further improving on engineering and design

Solar Blades – Solar Shading

As part of Airsculpt-Facades Brise Soleil design solutions are the option of Photo Voltaic “PV” solar panel inserts. These flat PV panels can be added to replace the AFSS Brise Soleil aileron configuration providing ideal angles and south facing positioning for maximising sun and natural daylight absorption. Available in 4.0Kw up to 50.0 Kw panels you are able to turn a potential heat and shading issue into power generation and ecological efficient benefit.
