Introducing S3 Synchronised Solar Shading

By: Oli Birch Category: Automated Systems

As the leading designers, manufacturers and installers of inventive shading and screening solutions, we’re incredibly excited to announce the launch of our industry first and highly innovative S3 Synchronised Solar Shading range. And it only seems fitting to launch on the summer solstice – the longest day of sunlight this year.

With sustainability and cost-effectiveness being prevalent in architects and designers’ minds, innovative shading solutions that optimise building performance are providing huge opportunities to impact a building’s efficiency and energy management.

Through leveraging open protocols via KNX® controls and SMI® blind motors, our new S3 Synchronised Solar Shading system seamlessly interacts with any Building Management System. Fully customisable, the range is offered in 3 tiers – Core, Advanced and Premium, each providing general functionality upgrades that make an automated control system increasingly more intelligent and powerful as a tool to optimise shading, reducing the demand for cooling.

Our very own Sales Director, Frazer James, said:

“We’ve seen the methodology behind S3 significantly disrupt the market over the last 2 years. The system brings benefits at the construction phase of the project both from a cost perspective and ease of install due to the significant reduction in wiring and power supplies required. The commissioning is also simplified and gives so much flexibility. Post handover is where the benefits are really seen with S3 being able to proactively manage the solar shading in the building to reduce energy usage and aid occupants’ productivity.” James continues, “The flexibility of the S3 system allows landlords and developers to reconfigure zones, add extra devices in with limited changes to the initial install meaning upgrades in functionality come at a greatly reduced cost.”

The only open-source solar shading system that can reduce building energy usage and raise environmental impact and sustainability credentials, S3 delivers against seven key benefits, and exemplifies the Guidehouse* [2021] study’s assertion that “solar shading, specifically dynamic solar shading, is a key energy efficiency measure for a cost-effective improvement of the energy performance of buildings.”
