Shutterflex have introduced the new Perforated Ellipse sun control systems to their already comprehensive range of façade systems. These three metre high sun blades were recently installed on the $150 million mixed use development project, Mon Komo, at Scarborough, Queensland. They were installed by Shutterflex to stretch vertically ten storeys high, creating five column configurations that scaled the full height of the building façade for a striking visual aesthetic.
These customised blades provide a unique, lightweight sun control solution on facades while allowing a constant line of sight through the screen to the Scarborough coastline view. The system operates so that the perforation filters the light and minimises sunlight shining directly onto the luxury apartments.
The fixed Perforated Ellipse sun control systems are manufactured from an aluminium base with 2mm thick perforated sheets wrapped around the frame and fixed with stainless steel rivets. The Shutterflex project managers created a stylish exterior design by concealing the fixings to give a clean and professional finish, and developing the blades in earthy, neutral tones to combine well with the natural stone and timber finishes of contemporary Caribbean resort inspired design.
