Please describe the project specifications

Our company designed, manufactured, and installed 6 exterior, motorized sun screens with varying widths from 36 inches to 170 inches and heights from 44 inches to 99 inches. The housings, side rails, and drop bars were all white. The mesh was Mermet, 0210, White/Sable. The mesh was "zippered" to allow the curtain to travel within the side rails. All units are solar-powered by Somfy, 410r2 AUTOSUN RTS motors. Somfy's Telis-4 handheld remote, DecoFlex-5 in-wall remote, DecoFlex-1 in-wall remote were all included in the design of this solution.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The client demanded immediate relief from several problems. They had finally had enough of the yearly electricity costs and wanted a sleek stylish design that would provide the much needed shade and comfort they were looking for. The four largest windows face the ocean and receive all-day sun. Flooring and woodwork had been previously damaged and bleached by UV rays. They also requested in-wall, wireless remotes as well as a backup, handheld remote.

What is unique or complex about the project?

Creating a solution that blended in with the estate-like architecture as well as matching the color scheme was very important to the client.

What were the results of the project?

Pure joy! Our solution provided immediate comfort from the devastating effects of the sun and provided them with a sleek stylish design they were looking for.
