The Architect’s Newspaper Recognizes 8010 Adjustable Sunshade
The CRL 8010 Series Single Blade Sunshade continues to garner industry recognition with a 2022 Best of Products Award honorable mention in the Window Openings category. This unique sunshade features exceptional design flexibility, enabling architects to create exterior envelope designs that better manage sun exposure.
The combination of aesthetics and superior design makes the 8010 Adjustable Sunshade unique in the industry. Extraordinary flexibility is key to the system’s performance, allowing the shade’s blade to be adjusted in minute degrees—from 0° to -35° in 5° intervals—customized to the building’s precise exposure angle. The result is a sunshade system tailored to a building’s specific geographical location, alleviating interior cooling loads and improving energy efficiency.
The Architect’s Newspaper is read by industry leaders in architecture and design who rely on the publication as a trusted source for news, products, developments, trends, and updates. A jury of architects, designers, educators, curators, and manufacturers, as well as AN editor, judged all award entries, evaluated for innovation, aesthetics, performance, and value.
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.
