Shadovoltaic is a fixed or controllable external glazed solar shading system that may be installed either vertically or horizontally in front of the façade. Photovoltaic cells are integrated into the glass to generate electricity.

Product is available in various colours, finishes and coatings. The principal support and control components are manufactured from aluminium, a high embodied energy material, and stainless steel.

Product provides thermal benefits, reducing solar heat gain and glare transmitted into internal spaces. This allows for significant reductions in the demand for air conditioning to be achieved, improving building comfort and reducing associated electricity consumption, HVAC, plant size and greenhouse gas emissions.
