Sunlite swaged awnings and screens use a unique lightweight, high strength aluminium louvre system that is modular in design but varied in applications. Originally derived from rooftop walkway systems these new panel designs can be as simple as flat crossbar sheets or be a passive solar control panel with fixed pitch blade allowing winter sun and shading summer sun.
Swaged panels come in large sheets that are fabricated with a combination of flat bar, crossbar, and louvre blade. These components are punched, threaded and locked into position using a mechanical pressure – swaged. This fabrication system provides a very minimalistic design that offers solar protection, privacy and aesthetics.
Sunlite uses these panels in many different applications such as, window awnings and screens, commercial facade awnings, mitred / angled screening, and privacy panels. Due to the self-supporting characteristics of the panel design the panels can span well and can be supported with minimal cleat / bracket design.
