Effective solar management is a good thing for building owners, occupants, and the environment. GKD’s metal woven solar mesh provides a dazzling design element while achieving sunshade and daylighting goals. Energy is saved by reducing interior lighting and interior cooling needs. This increases interior comfort and reduces power costs. The benefits of our metal sun shade fabrics support Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) opportunities.
Contribution toward LEED goals include:
• Energy and Atmosphere points by reducing air conditioning and lighting electrical loads
• Materials and Resources points because it’s made from recycled material and is recyclable
• Sustainable Sites points when used as an overhead sunshade to reduce the heat island effect
