Museums & Libraries

A museum preferably shows works of art in daylight. A library too offers visitors the best natural light, i.e. daylight. However, too much is never good. Fortunately, Sunshield's custom louver systems offer a solution.

Skylights are mainly installed in libraries and museums. Sometimes on the roof, the other time under it. That does not matter for the Sunshield technology. The slat chosen largely determines to what extent daylight is allowed in or, conversely, excluded. With a perforated louver, for example, you can experience daylight even when the blades are closed. While with other slats you can achieve almost 100% blackout.

A Sunshield louver system can easily last 10 years. With a maintenance contract, owning and operating costs can be further reduced. Costs then become more predictable. In short, an investment in unique Sunshield louvers is also good for the budget. And that for years.
