Too Much Glazing

Blog

The growing trend of architectural designs that incorporate glazing is not something that is likely to fade out anytime soon. There are more and more building design masterpieces that are being built with large expanses of glass as the main features, they create a stunning effect, flooding in lots of light into the internal space. If they are not designed right with the appropriate cooling systems in place then they can cause issues later down the line.

One of the vital aspects of a building design is to create a well-lit space to make the atmosphere feel free which is why glazing is an imperative design feature that is needed. A disadvantage that comes with large expanses of glass is that it can create unwanted solar heat gain that can cause discomfort. When the solar rays make contact with glass it magnifies the heat causing the internal temperatures to rise.

At Caribbean Blinds we often work with architects to create solar shading systems to apply over the glazed spaces to reduce the impact of solar radiation. By installing external roller blinds, external roof blinds and patio awnings we can implement a defence against these harmful rays as the first point of contact will be against the robust external fabrics rather than the glass. Our automated external blinds can be fitted with SMART sensors that can detect light and heat and deploy the blinds to restore the balance of the internal space.
