Sun Shades and Light Shelves Maximize Daylight and Energy Efficiency

Feb. 15, 2010

Wausau's aluminum exterior sun shades and interior light shelves intercept unwanted solar heat gain before it can impact a building's HVAC load. Sun shades also can economize natural light by redirecting it inside the building. Extending the redirection and reach, interior light shelves at transom height are especially effective at redirecting sunlight deep into occupied spaces. Further contributing to green goals, Wausau's aluminum sun shades and light shelves may be specified with high recycled content. http://www.WausauWindow.com.
