Sunshades for Glazing



Sunshades play an essential role in sun control, not just for the glazing but for the entire structure. Whether you’re looking for solar sunshades or curtain wall sunshades, Sharchs Corporation can provide what you need. Learn more about what we offer.

We fabricate sunshades (with attachment) for all major manufacturer’s storefront and curtainwall systems, implementing quality control procedures.

The Role of Sunshades for Glazing

Sunshades are shading solutions for windows and doorways. They control the amount of direct sunlight that enters interior spaces, preventing them from overheating. Sunshades also work as protection for building facades and to enhance a building’s aesthetic. In some cases, sunshades help distribute snow and wind loads.

Sunshades are a popular choice for many architects, contractors and property owners. One of the biggest reasons for this is the energy-saving benefit. For buildings with large amounts of glazing and metal, having reliable sun control solutions helps regulate indoor temperatures. You cut down on air-conditioning costs and improve comfort for the occupants.

Best Types of Sunshades for Glazing

Sharchs Corporation has a wide selection of aluminum and architectural sunshades. Our team of in-house experts designs and manufactures products according to our customers’ specifications. Depending on your needs, there are different types of sunshades for glazing. Some of the exterior sun control devices that we offer include:

  • Cantilevered aluminum sunshades: Cantilevered sunshades are the best solutions if you’re looking for sunshade options that don’t compromise your building’s aesthetic. Aside from efficient sun control, cantilevered sunshades also work for snow and wind load distribution.
  • Hanger rod-support aluminum sunshades: Hanger rod-support aluminum sunshades utilize posts and hangers for stability. They are best for controlling light that goes through windows and doorways. Hanger-rod types also enhance the architecture and provide a unique look to a storefront or building facade.
  • Vertical aluminum sunshades: Vertical aluminum sunshades are ideal for glazing facing the east and west. These directions are usually where it’s most challenging to control sunlight. The vertical orientation is effective at managing varying degrees of light.
  • Commercial aluminum awnings: Aluminum awnings are another great sun control option if you want something that you can open every now and then. They work with glazing and are ideal for preventing rain and providing extra ventilation.
  • Custom aluminum sunshades: If you prefer the aluminum material but have specific requirements in terms of dimensions, infill and other details, you can opt for our custom aluminum sunshades. These sunshades are as effective, but they’re specifically designed for your needs.
