Palagio USA - TerraSHADE

Product Overview

Sunscreen Cladding Solutions

The use of terracotta louvers grants a series of benefits:

  • Shadowing
  • Comfortable Lighting Conditions
  • Solar Control
  • Protection Against Ultraviolet Rays
  • Reduction of the thermal impact on the building
  • Reduction of heat dispersions
  • Screening

TerraSHADE is a louver element realized for screenings and sunshades.

It is assembled by inserting metal profiles into the internal hole obtained by extrusion. The dimensions of the tubular elements have been designed to produce different patterns of light and shade. TERRASHADE can be combined with other terracotta tiles such as TerraBrick creating interesting alternating surfaces on the building’s façade.

Research, studies and technological development have enabled the company to design new sunscreen systems that differ in their cross-sections but keep the main features of durability and resistance unchanged.

The beneficial effects are guaranteed if the sunscreen is engineered according to the latitude of the project, the local climate, the analysis of the site location, the project orientation, and the effect obtained by the sunscreen during different periods over the year depending on the building’s use.

Moreover, the aesthetic advantage of a sunscreen is appreciated both from inside and outside the building.

Solar control and reduction of thermal impact on the building

The use of a sunscreen results in a limited temperature increase inside the building and a reduction of the use of air-conditioning. An external screen is indeed a more effective instrument of solar control compared to an internal screen, as solar radiation is, during summer months, intercepted prior to reaching the glass surfaces, avoiding the greenhouse effect and the ensuing overheating of the environments. Internal screens, on the contrary, allow the light to pass through the glass, requiring finally the removal of the heat accumulated inside the building by means of mechanical ventilation or air-conditioning.
