This solar shading system can improve the energy efficiency of buildings by controlling the amount of solar radiation that hits vertical surfaces, with automated panel positioning, based on internal and external temperature as well as local illumination values. Modular, scalable and flexible, it can be installed on new or refurbished constructions.
This patented structure, ideal in the temperate climate zone, uses aluminium panels, whose position is determined by real time temperature and illumination parameters. The panels slide along a vertical structure fixed parallel to the surface, in order to offer maximum shading or maximum folding when the screens are unnecessary. The system is an ideal retrofit since it is modular and adaptable: it can be used to shade single openings or entire facades. Its particular geometry, with different inclinations according to the positioning, is a valuable aesthetic addition to architectural surfaces. The colour and finishing of the panel can also be customized.

  • Improved solar panel recycling

    Over the next decade the number of unserviceable photovoltaic solar panels will increase exponentially. More efficient methods designed to separate the many materials that make up a panel must be developed so that they do not end up discarded in[...]

  • Storage and conversion of electricity

    In the future, power plants will generate electricity from mixed renewable sources. It will therefore necessary to stock energy efficiently when the production of solar or wind power exceeds the demand. This patent describes an efficient, cost effective and easy[...]

  • Connector for timber walls

    This patented anchoring system is ideally used in timber construction. Its special shape and material are ideal to connect wood walls or to anchor them to concrete foundations, even in high seismic risk areas. This invention is an X-shaped steel[...]
