Match® S Sunshade Panels
Making Art with Match®
Match® grating systems are commonly used as awnings or shading devices, however with Arcadia’s ability to customise our products, designers and architects can incorporate added features through customised blade profiles being incorporated. This can be incorporated as artwork or imagery to enhance public appeal for your project and façade, and added feature can be achieved through using customised blade colours – see Arcadias Colour selection guide. Based on the orientation of the system it is able to vary and change the amount of natural lighting inlet and privacy and screening.
Factors to consider
There are a couple of considerations you will need to keep in mind when integrating the Match® Grating system into your project. Firstly the use and application should be considered. This could include Screening, Privacy, Decorative Feature, or security screening. Secondly you should consider blade profile and sizing. Thirdly, product span should be considered based on the blade profile chosen, location of the project, terrain categories and wind loadings. Fourthly, consideration should be given to Structural requirements based on the above.
