The CombiSol sun and glare protection louvre reflects direct sunlight from defined angles back outwards and allows diffuse daylight through from the remaining directions.
The CombiSol louvre prevents the 'hot' light from the sun entering the interior space, reduces effects of glare from the sun and at the same time allows a maximum of 'cool' diffuse daylight to enter.
The CombiSol louvre consists of two system components:
The blocking/admission area of the louvre in relation to the daylight hemisphere comes about as a result of the special construction coupled with the exact setting of the louvre in sync with the sun's orbit. The incoming daylight is only let through according to a defined, narrow angle spectrum (65° blocking), so that the glare effect of the glass surface is reduced to suit work activities with computer screens. The 7 x 15 cm louvre elements are given a specular finish with ultra-pure aluminium within a high vacuum atmosphere.
The next step involves connecting the louvre elements to larger units and cutting them to shape and size according to the building location and its architectural conditions. In order to protect the specular louvre from external influences (dampness, dust etc), the inlet is bordered with a special edge profile. Glass discs are glued onto this edge profile and sealed with a special compound (thiolol, silicone).
