Solarlux launches new ultra-contemporary glass canopy
Solarlux has introduced a new, ultra-contemporary glass canopy – the SDL Acubis – to its impressive product portfolio. Harmonising with current architectural trends the bespoke, cubic glass structure can be used for a wide variety of applications, from a workshop or studio, to entertaining and outdoor living space.
The SDL Acubis glass canopy can be enjoyed as a free-standing construction or integrated into existing design. With a wide range of profiles to choose from, the three or four-sided modular extension is both innovative and practical.
The glass canopy is constructed at two degrees and hardly visible to the naked eye, allowing excess water to drain off effortlessly. In heavier rainfall areas the discrete, concealed drainage installed in the pillars is a popular choice.
The single glazed cutting-edge design is available in thicknesses of up to 12mm. The optional extra of steel reinforcement on the vertical supports protects the strength to size ratio. With a height of 253mm the single piece wall junction enables the structure to be fitted seamlessly to any building.
The supports can be set back from the eaves to provide the best structural use of sections. Positioning of pillars is variable enabling you to connect the vertical systems to the canopy. Made to measure pillar lengths and optional height adjustment available.
A clever way to lighten up the room is the use of spotlights integrated into the roof beams. The cables are smartly concealed in a cable duct located in the wall joint.
The addition of window awnings, which are invisible when retracted, allow users to enjoy panoramic views and the vertical shades reduce heat transfer onto the glass.
Joern Greve, Managing Director of Solarlux comments: “Solarlux guarantees prompt structural calculations. We achieve significantly reduced installation times as the structure is pre-fabricated and partly pre-assembled at our plant. The modular design means we can significantly reduce construction, site equipment and labour costs.”
