Commercial Architectural Sunshade Canopy
Four Seasons’ Aluminum Sunshade systems are custom designed to meet your building’s needs.
Made from extruded aluminum, our Sunshades are a lightweight and architecturally pleasing element.
Reducing your building’s expenses is important with soaring energy costs. Adding aluminum architectural sunshade canopies to your design will give a sleek and modern architectural look, while keeping your business or storefront nice and cool.
The objective of our low-maintenance sunshades is to block the entry or window from direct sunlight into your building in the hot summer months, while allowing direct sunlight during the cooler seasons. This combination can eliminate the need for window treatments such as blinds, tinting, and curtains.
The greatest benefit our sunshades functional features provide is the reduction of your buildings energy consumption by lowering the demand on HVAC and cooling units, which in turn reduces monthly operating costs with a lower monthly electric bill. Building owners and architects have reported 15 to 50 percent savings on cooling costs and overall annualized energy costs on structures where shading solutions are optimally designed and implemented.
Another way to look at it is our sunshade systems allow diffused natural daylight in while keeping the heat out. With numerous blade shapes, blade spacings, and trim profiles there is no limit on the customization of our sunshades giving them the ability to blend with other building design elements and provide the desired appearance adding an attractive architectural element to any building.
