The Benefits of Sunshade Control

In today's world, where energy efficiency and comfort play a central role in our lives, sunshade control is becoming an increasingly popular solution for commercial properties. Whether it's office buildings, hotels, or shopping centers, modern sunshade systems offer many benefits that go far beyond simple shading. Here are the key advantages of investing in and using controllable sunshade systems in commercial properties.

Increased Energy Efficiency

One of the most compelling arguments for sunshade control in commercial properties is the significant energy savings. By automatically adjusting blinds, awnings, or roller shades based on the sun's position and intensity, the need for air conditioning during hot summer days and heating during cold winter days can be reduced. Studies have shown that using automated sunshades can reduce cooling costs by up to 30-40%, resulting in significant energy savings. The total energy savings for a commercial building can reach 10-20%, depending on the climate and the building's specific conditions.

Automated sunshade systems are also an important component for meeting the energy requirements set by the EU. The Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) aims to improve energy efficiency by 32.5% by 2030, and the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires all new buildings from 2021 to be "nearly zero-energy buildings" (NZEB). Automated sunshade systems help achieve these high energy standards by reducing energy consumption. Additionally, the EU's Green Deal, including the Renovation Wave, supports the renovation and energy efficiency of existing buildings, where automated sunshades play a key role in achieving the necessary energy savings.

Improved Indoor Comfort

For every business, it's important to ensure that everyone in the premises feels comfortable. This means creating an optimal environment regarding sound, light, temperature, and other factors that affect people's well-being. Automated sunshade systems are a central component in creating this comfort, which in turn can improve employee and customer satisfaction and the company's image.

Protects Your Property

The sun's UV rays damage furniture, floors, and other equipment by causing fading and weakening of materials. UV rays break down chemical bonds in materials like wood, fabric, and plastic, leading to color loss, brittleness, and reduced structural integrity over time. Photochemical degradation occurs when UV light hits a material, causing reactions that break down color pigments and polymers. Additionally, UV exposure can lead to oxidation, where materials react with oxygen in the air, further weakening the material structure. The heat generated by UV light can also cause thermal damage, contributing to cracking and deformation. For plastic materials, this means that polymer chains break down, resulting in lost flexibility and strength.

Controllable sunshades help minimize these damages by controlling how much direct sunlight reaches the interior. By automatically adjusting the sunshades based on the sun's position and intensity, exposure to harmful UV light can be limited. This extends the lifespan of interior furnishings and equipment, reducing the need for frequent replacements and renovations. For businesses, this not only preserves the aesthetic and functional qualities of their premises but also results in significant cost savings over time.

Flexibility and Control

Modern sunshade systems offer high flexibility and control, often through the use of advanced technology like AI and cloud-based solutions. These systems can automatically adjust the sunshades based on real-time data about the sun's position and weather conditions, optimizing both energy savings and comfort. Property managers can easily monitor and adjust the sunshades remotely via central control systems, enabling a customized solution that can be tailored to individual needs and preferences. This level of automation and remote control contributes to efficient operation and improved user experience while ensuring that the sunshades function optimally under all conditions.

It Works!

One of the biggest benefits of controlled sunshade systems is the significant reduction in manual labor. In large commercial buildings, it would be both unreasonably time-consuming and resource-intensive to adjust each sunshade individually. The alternative to automation is having personnel manually handle the sunshades, which is unsustainable and inefficient, and without automation, adjustments might not be performed at all. Automated systems ensure that the sunshades are always optimally adjusted.
