Architectural Record Names 8010 Adjustable Sunshade One of the Best Building Envelope Products of 2022
The innovative 8010 Series Single Blade Sunshade wins another accolade, named one of the Best Building Envelope products of 2022 by Architectural Record. The unique 8010 Sunshade is designed to be flexible, allowing architects to create exterior envelope designs that better manage sun exposure.
CRL has combined exceptional aesthetics and superior design in the 8010 Adjustable Sunshade. Key to the system’s performance is the ability to adjust the Sunshade’s blades in tiny increments—from 0° to -35° in 5° intervals. This high level of flexibility enables architects to customize the 8010 for the building’s precise exposure angle, creating a tailor-made fit for a building’s specific geographical location to minimize interior cooling loads and improve energy efficiency.
The blades of the 8010 Adjustable Sunshade can be attached either horizontally or vertically, and splice joints can be specified to create a streamlined, continuous look. The availability of two different blade profiles and customizable configurations provide the flexibility to meet unique building designs. Applications for the 8010 Series Single Blade Sunshade include office buildings, hospitals and healthcare facilities, education structures, and multi-family residential buildings.
