the challenge

Customer needed some exterior sun control on the first and second floors plus covering a few entrance doors. They also were looking to add some custom accent bands over select windows which needed to match the new sun control devices. They wanted industrial design with straight lines and oversized fascia.

The Solution

We provided one of our typical sunshade designs including extruded aluminum components and mitered corners. The 19” fascia, however, was a total custom fabrication using anodized aluminum sheet which was formed and attached to the sunshade structures. We also integrated a few Helios canopies inside the sunshade structures as well as one stand alone unit to protect the entrance locations. The custom box style accent bands were fabricated using aluminum tube framing and the same anodized sheet material was used for the 12” fascia.
