This one is cool guys! The Solarmotion family of products are motor operated exterior blinds and and shutters/shades. it is common knowledge that blinds and shutters reduce both heat and glare, but many of the shades occurring in office spaces are on the interior where they do not perform they function as effectively as possible. Sure it stops the glare just fine but the thermal gain reduced by interior shades is minimal. Exterior shade products can reduce the cost of cooling your building by as much as 21%! However that is not the only thing cool about these shades. These thing are sleek and attractive. There are a number of options to choose from. For the shades they offer Mullions and blades. rounded, and flat mullions on the shades, and the flat can be customized with solid color inserts or high efficiency LED’s to make your building really stand out at night. The blades, by far the slickest option are available in cedar, glass, acrylic, and an airfoil shape that can be solid, solid with LED and perforated.The blinds come in several versions as well including standard and blackout. But wait! Theres more? These shades can be controlled by a number of interesting methods. The shades can be directly controlled by a building management system so it can automatically ensure that the shades work in conjunction with the rest of the buildings systems. There is also a solar tracking option that adjusts the blades as the sun changes position. Finally there is remote control, which can be configured to control all at once or by a per office basis. This description can really do no justice to the flexibility, fit, and form of this system so head to http://www.c-sgroup.com/solarmotion to learn more.
