We offer 2 cladding solutions for your building exterior: the Elegance sun shade board and the Atmosphere co-extruded open rhombus cladding board
Looking for building cladding that looks great, requires no treatment and has guaranteed long-lasting colour? Our open rhombus cladding board made from co-extruded composite meets all these criteria.
Did you know that this product provides new exterior cladding solutions, thanks to 5 colour options and different types of installation?
Our open rhombus composite cladding boards consist mainly of wood fibres.
This means that they are not structural components.
Moreover, they may suffer thermal expansion and changes in dimension,
which means it is essential that you comply with our installation instructions.
The open rhombus cladding boards are not designed to be load-bearing.
Before any installation, check that the structure of the building can support the weight of the cladding (for reference purposes, the board weighs 1.8 kg per metre run).
Our open rhombus cladding boards are not designed to keep water out of the building.
Are you looking for an exterior cladding solution that will modify the brightness and temperature inside your living space? Choose our sun shade profile.
Our sun shade profile offers true comfort.
It enables you to reduce direct solar radiation into your home, and regulate the heat level while still letting light in.
This means that if your building has air-conditioning installed, you will also consume less energy.
The sun shade board consists of 2 elements:
- The composite rail with cross-section 50 x 80 mm, and the aluminium reinforcement with cross-section 30 x 20 x 2 mm.
- A sun shade board is 4 m long. The composite profile should never be separated from its aluminium reinforcement.
This product aligns with the initiatives mentioned in French Thermal Regulation RT2012.
Its effect depends on the configuration of the installed boards.
Sun shades reduce the discomfort associated with direct sunlight, while maintaining a high level of brightness and visibility inside the building. When the angle of incidence of the sun’s rays is known, the boards' orientation and spacing can be adjusted to optimise the percentage of direct sunlight that enters:
- When the sun is high in the sky, as is particularly the case in summer, the sun shade boards create maximum shade (0% direct sunlight enters).
- By increasing the space between the boards and/or changing their orientation, this percentage can be increased to allow some sunlight in (20% direct sunlight enters).
- Conversely, when the sun is low in the sky, as in winter, the sun shade boards let in more light.
Silvadec® composite sun shade profiles are not designed to be load-bearing.
Our sun shades do not provide thermal insulation. They must not be included in building insulation calculations; additionally, they are not designed to keep water out.
They consist mainly of wood fibres. As a result, they may suffer thermal expansion and changes in dimension,
It is therefore essential that you comply with our installation instructions.
Before installing any sun shade boards, you must check that the building structure can support their weight (for information, profiles weigh 3.4 kg per metre run).
