Neaco have developed two open grille profiles – Louvredek and Brise Soleil – for solar shading purposes, providing excellent sunscreen performance combined with the ability to function as a walkway at the same time.
Although at first glance they appear to be regular metal grating, Louvredek and Brise Soleil’s walkway/sunscreens are specifically designed to achieve the optimum benefits of sunlight and assist the energy efficiency of a building. Readily adaptable to your specific design requirements, the two systems can be installed anywhere required: underfoot, on an angle or overhead.
The solar shading grilles manufactured from panels consisting of alternate louvre extrusions and aluminium rectangular flat bars. Louvre bars are set at approximately 60mm centres and swaged with 8mm² cross bars at 100mm centres.
Although they are not specifically designed for sun protection, our Flat Bar and N-I Bar open grille systems are also suitable for solar shading and they have been specified to serve this purpose at a number of developments.

Patented swage-locked construction between the bars enables high structural efficiency.
Corrosive-free for maintenance-free durability, with a design life up 120+ years.
Manufactured from A1 Fire Rated aluminium
