Energy efficient solar protection

External solar protection is an essential aspect of the design, construction and renovation of buildings and can have a significant impact on energy efficiency as well as the health and wellbeing of residents.

Energy Efficiency

External solar protection helps to reduce the amount of heat that enters a building, which can help to lower energy consumption for air conditioning and cooling.


By reducing heat and glare, external solar protection can improve the comfort of a building's interior, making it a more pleasant place to live or work.


Excessive exposure to solar radiation can cause discomfort and health problems such as eye strain and skin damage. External solar protection helps to reduce these risks and improve the health and wellbeing of building occupants.

Protection of Furnishings

External solar solutions can help to protect the interior of a building from fading and damage caused by exposure to the sun.

Cost Savings

By reducing energy consumption and also helping to protect furnishings, external solar protection can result in significant cost savings for building owners and occupants.

Solar heat reduction

Adding an energy efficient Awning or external screen reduces the amout of solar heat entering your home by up to 96%.

Without any window covering 61% of solar heat is transmitted into the interior.

With an internal blind fitted, 37% of solar heat is transmitted into the interior.

With an Awning fitted as little as 10% of solar heat is transmitted into the interior. With an external Screen this figure can be as low as 4%


Luxaflex® Awnings and Screens can be an effective way to reduce solar heat gain and protect against harmful UV rays.
