While architects use sunlight to improve the look and feel of our homes, the sun’s energy trapped indoors can easily become too intense, causing our interiors to overheat. This is proven to have a negative impact on our well-being. Smart Solar Shading reduces the discomfort large window surfaces can cause during warm weather whilst still allowing natural light in and keeping us visually connected with the exterior environment. Our comfort is also enhanced.
The WHO suggests that ‘healthy indoor temperatures’ for healthy individuals should be in the range 18-24 degrees Celsius.
We spend around 90 per cent of our time indoors, with 65 per cent at home. Our homes are where we eat, relax and sleep and where our children have many of their most formative experiences.
