Sun Control system enhances London development

Sun Control system enhances London development

A café built as part of a canalside residential development in East London has been fitted with a bespoke Hunter Douglas motorised Sun Control system. The international leader in architectural building products was commissioned by London-based architects Jestico + Whiles to provide a 147m2 Sun Control System.

The ground-floor café on the Telford Homes Boathouse development near Limehouse Cut was fitted with a tailor-made folding shutter system that comprises individual, interconnected panels. Set in a 40mm x 60mm frame and constructed using extruded aluminium profiles, the individual shutters are connected to each other to create either V or W folding elements. The advanced motorised mechanism allows the shutters to fold completely flat when they are closed.

The shutter was also supplied with an infill of laser-cut aluminium sheet, which was fixed mechanically by screws or pop rivets, providing the necessary stability and strength.
