Extruded Aluminum Sunscreens are constructed using a variety of extruded aluminum shapes assembled with welded construction or with mechanical fasteners. The assembly can consist of stock shapes such as aluminum bars, tubes, angles, channels or can be totally custom shapes such as foils, fins or blades.

Extruded aluminum sunscreens are typically attached with outriggers attached to a building’s internal or exterior structural framing in a wide variety of methods. Sunscreen assemblies can also be attached directly to a curtainwall, sub-framing, or other building cladding material. Each design is engineered to insure structural stability and compliance with design load requirements.
