Terracotta Baguette and Louver From paneltek
In addition to the terracotta panel cladding system, paneltek also offers sunscreen devices as a part of the terracotta product line.
Our team provides engineered solutions for the utilization of baguettes and louvers as part of your facade design. Also formed using extrusion technology, baguettes and louvers are available in standard sizes but can also be modified to fit your design goals.
As the perfect combination of form and function, these sunshade devices not only add a distinctive element to a building,they also cut down on glare when used in front of a glazing system,providing shading to the building’s inhabitants similar to any conventional shades or blinds
The basic elements of these shading systems are the terracotta baguette or louver. While typical attachment details are available for basic understanding of the system, paneltek has the ability to modify the framing and attachment system to fit the specific needs of your project.
No few projects have utilized the same framing system, yet paneltek continues to find success even when presented with a challenging design.
paneltek uses the term “baguette” to refer to any sunscreen device that has a square profile, while a “louver” refers to all other shading devices that have sides with unequal dimensions.
Similar to terracotta panels, sunshade devices are typically provided in maximum lengths of 1800mm. Please contact our sales team if your design incorporates spans of a greater distance.
