ZEST® SUNBLADES

 

OVERVIEW

Zest® Sunblades provide modern feature to building facades, while controlling natural light, glare and providing significant reduction in heat loads and energy costs. Arcadia has an extensive selection of aluminium Sunblade profiles including Elliptical, bullet, rectangular, square, and a range of bespoke profiles. Arcadia offer electrically operable or fixed systems in both vertical and horizontal configuration. Studies over many years have proved that building & internal office performance has a close link to the levels of natural daylight.

Selecting an operable louvre range allows the Sunblades to rotate in synchronisation with the sunpath to reflect direct sunlight and glare, stopping the sun from heating up the facade. This results in reduced running costs & energy usage, improved office performance, access to views and enhanced levels of natural daylight.

Zest® Sunblades are engineered and designed to provide maximum efficiency, ultimate span capacity, and can be connected to buildings via a range of standard and bespoke fixing methods to suit your project needs. All products are Australian made, locally manufactured, engineered to AS1170.2 and tested and engineered for all regions of Australia including Cyclone regions.
