LEVOLUX Takes Solar Shading To Infiniti And Beyond

Levolux, the UK’s leading solar shading specialist, has challenged the laws of physics with its new Infiniti Fin ® solar shading system. This ground-breaking innovation in solar shading provides a unique aesthetic of continuous, fixed aerofoil fins with concealed, stainless steel fixings.

The Infiniti Fin ® system is the latest addition to the range of solar shading systems available from Levolux and features a unique, patented integral stainless steel locking plate, concealed within an extruded aluminium Aerofoil Fin or section. The innovative design allows the maximum possible span capability with the minimum visual footprint and allows Aerofoil Fins to be cantilevered to overhang past the carrier arm without the need for end plates.

The development of the new Infiniti Fin ® system was a natural evolution. Levolux strives to push the boundaries of design, to engineer new solutions that can deliver real benefits to architects and developers. The Infiniti Fin ® system is the only such system with concealed, integrated fixings and makes it possible to create continuous clean lines, without compromising on structural integrity.

In contrast with ‘bird-mouth’ type systems, which can look rather heavy and unsightly, the Infiniti Fin ® system has a sleek appearance and weighs up to 30% less. The system also boasts an extremely strong and reliable fixing method, which has been tested well in excess of the loads likely to be applied and has been engineered to accommodate thermal expansion – an important factor that can weaken ‘bird-mouth’ type systems.

Like other external solar shading systems, developed by Levolux, the Infiniti Fin ® system is proven to reduce solar heat gain by as much as 95%. This can contribute significantlyto the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings by reducing the need for energy sapping air conditioning. At the same time, the system allows plenty of natural daylight tofilter through and provides good outward visibility, creating a comfortable, naturally lit environment.

The system is extremely flexible and can be tailored to suit almost any building. It is available in a standard horizontal arrangement and when using the multi-angle stainless steel bracket the fins can be installed at any angle. Aerofoil Fins are available in 200mm,250mm and 300mm widths, or there is the option of a 480mm wide diamond shaped blade. Other shaped sections or fins can be made available. The system can also be installed vertically.

For maximum benefit, the Infiniti Fin ® system integrates seamlessly with Levolux’s Universal Curtain Walling Bracket, which reduces thermal bridging, dampens vibrations and prevents noise transmission into the building. The bracket features a unique thermal break to eliminate the risk of interstitial condensation, which over time can weaken the structural integrity of a building.

The Infiniti Fin ® system sets a new standard in external fixed solar shading systems and with its unique aesthetic of continuous blades and concealed fixings, it is destined to become the preferred solution for architects and specifiers.
