Solar Management

Solar management is a good thing for building owners, occupants and the environment. GKD metal fabrics provide a dazzling design element while achieving sunshade and daylighting goals.  Energy is saved by reducing interior lighting and interior cooling needs. This increases interior comfort and reduces power costs. Our environmental benefits support LEED opportunities.

Contribution toward LEED goals include:
Energy and Atmosphere points by reducing air conditioning and lighting electrical loads
Materials and Resources points because it’s made from recycled material and is recyclable
Sustainable Sites points when used as an overhead sunshade to reduce the heat island effect
