While Construction Specialties gives you the ability to construct a unique sun control system that meets the complex needs of your project, our expert engineers will ensure that the finished product looks anything but piecemeal.
CS Sun Controls are custom designed to attach to any type of building, and precision attachments are manufactured for all curtain wall or masonry projects. CS offers a range of applications designed to meet your project’s specific shading requirements.
Design options include vertical and horizontal orientation, cantilevered or suspended support, lightshelves and skylight shutters.
A hollow extruded aluminum profile who’s shape maximizes its span. Can be used in either vertical or horizontal orientation.
A hollow extruded aluminum profile who’s shape allows greater spans than traditional “ZEE” louver blades, used in either vertical or horizontal orientation.
These sunshades are ideally suited for installations where loads from wind and snow need to be distributed over a larger area and back to the buildings structural support system.
Perfect for East and West elevations, where low sun angles make sun control challenging.
The most effective Sunshade for East and West elevations, where low sun angles make sun control challenging
- Define your design with a blade style: Blades are the most important element in effective sunshading. That’s why we let you choose from a range of blade styles, or design your own. We’ll work with you to specify the blade angle and rotation to optimize daylight based on building orientation and other conditions.
- Span the distance with an outrigger: The outrigger is key to the system’s ability to project greater distances. Select a wedge, tapered, box or trellis outrigger to support the structure, and specify its height, thickness and projection to meet your building’s functional requirements.
- Cap it off with a fascia: Fascias are a bold aesthetic element that provide the finishing touch on your sun control system. Punctuate your design with a harmonizing fascia style, including round, rectangular, bullnose or wedge.
- Choose a finish: Choose from our wide range of finishes, from 20 wood grain patterns to CS’s 20-Year AAMA 2605 Powder-Coat finishes to fluoropolymer pearlescent and metallic coatings.
