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.

FHC’s Aspire™ Thermally Broken Insulated Glass Door Entrance System along with the “VDS” Vertical Door Stile System (U.S. Patent Nos. 11,299,928 and 11,187,323) are both designed, engineered and manufactured in the U.S.A. at the company’s Southern California facility. These new products bring next level industry standards to air, water infiltration management and thermal performance meeting the nation’s ever evolving energy and building codes.

Features include:

  • Thermally broken door rails and vertical door stiles utilizing polyamide strut thermal barriers between the inside and outside aluminum extrusion members 
  • Door handle hardware connects directly to the glass, using a unique through glass hole spacer/sealer between the insulating glass lites, with a polyisobutylene (PIB) primary and silicone secondary seal 
  • Very narrow vertical door stiles with a unique clamping mechanism with unitizing gaskets for fast, durable installations 
  • Rugged stainless-steel corner joinery maintains door integrity in high traffic applications 
  • Pivot alignment system (PAS) in both top and bottom door rails for easy installation/alignment 
  • Doors configured to center or offset pivoting for compatibility with any storefront entrance system 
  • Integrated air and water infiltration management 
  • Several standard architectural finishes, plus powder-coat. 

Product Builder

The Product Builder is a powerful design solution for the production of parametric constructions with extruded profiles like fire doors, sun protection, balustrades, conservatories. It is a solution for manufacturers that do not use calculation or drawing software, allowing constructions with profiles to be made as parametric models based on scripts. The models allow the manufacturer to generate machine data, barcode labels, DXF drawings, numerous reports and, if necessary, give feedback to the manufacturers ERP system. From Product Builder the production lists are sent straight to the machine work floor enabling focus on the following tasks.

Using extremely powerful scripting models and algorithms, this software provides endless possibilities when it comes to executing design ideas and turning them into drawings and production lists.

Industries that produce large numbers of similar but customized products can benefit from using our Product Builder, though the ease of implementation and execution is a great tool for manufacturers of any size.
