Products & Information

SAF Sun Control Systems (Air Foil Configuration)

SAF Sun Control Systems reduce solar heat gain and control glare to allow a designer to optimize use of natural sunlight, reduce energy consumption and create a more comfortable environment for occupants. This works because the angle of the sun is different during the winter and summer months. During the winter the sun’s angle is lower and sunshades let more sunlight in, warming the interior of a building. The opposite is true during the summer when the sun is at a higher angle in the sky; the sunshades block more of the direct sunlight creating shade and a cooler interior environment.

The system includes air foils and fascia that are made from 6063-T6 aluminum alloy and brackets made from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Air foils are available in 4-, 6- and 8-inch variations. Blade configurations can vary and be custom designed based on the desired amount of sun control. Blade angles can be adjusted for different geographic locations or depending on which direction an exterior wall is facing.
