Fixed brise soleil

Solar shading with aesthetic added value

A sun screen over the window, or aluminum/wooden blades in front of the glass: fixed brise soleil provides shade in the summer and draws in the maximum low sun during the winter. In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy the view outside and the architectural added value for your façade all year round.

What is a brise soleil?

A brise soleil is solar shading on the exterior side of the building with architectural added value. The orientation of the blades blocks the sunlight when the sun is at its highest on hot days. The result is that the indoor temperature remains under control, while you optimally enjoy daylight and the view to the outside.

What are the advantages of fixed brise soleil?

Fixed brise soleil takes both the architecture of your home and the indoor climate to a higher level. Discover the advantages of this solution:

  • Limit the incoming solar heat while maximizing the daylight. This will ensure it stays cool inside. 
  • Fixed brise soleil boosts your privacy.
  • The architecture of your façade is given extra cachet with a brise soleil. Find the perfect look for your building.
  • The Sunclips sun screen will help you maintain a perfect view to the outside while the sun screen blocks the sunrays. 

What types of fixed brise soleil are there?

Because every building and every user is different, there are several types of fixed brise soleil. You can opt for a vertical or horizontal version: either way, the solar shading is designed, made and installed to measure for your building.

Vertical brise soleil shading

Vertical brise soleil shading

Fixed or moveable aluminum blades, affixed vertically in front of the windows on a support structure on the façade. 

Horizontal brise soleil shading

Horizontal brise soleil shading

A horizontal sun screen above the window combines shade in summer with maximum solar gain in winter while always maintaining a perfect view to the outside. 

How does a brise soleil work?

Fixed brise soleil keeps the heat out by blocking sunlight from the window. Both vertical and horizontal versions are popular because of their dynamic effect. In winter, the low sun enters the house in the morning and evening to warm it up naturally. The high summer sun is kept out by the design of the blades and structure so your building stays cool.

How does a brise soleil work?

Movable brise soleil

If a fixed brise soleil does not meet the requirements, a moveable system is a viable alternative. The Renson® Icarus is a brise soleil shading system with tilting blades that you can close to completely shut out the sun. When you open the blades, the sun enters again and you have a clear view out again.
