Extruded Aluminum Sunscreens are constructed using a variety of extruded aluminum shapes assembled with welded construction or mechanical fasteners and post painted to the specified finish.  The assembly can consist of stock shapes such as aluminum bars, rectangular aluminum tube, aluminum angles or aluminum channels or can be totally custom with shapes such as air foils, fins or blades.  Whatever the shape required, wall thicknesses, extrusions are engineered to withstand design loads and provide maximum span capabilities.  These systems are custom designed to meet each projects design requirement. 

Extruded Sunscreen  System

  • Rectangular Tube Frames and Blades

  • Aluminum Plate Out-riggers and Blades

  • Round Tube Sunscreens

  • Airfoil Blade Sunscreens

If the extrusion you are looking for does not exist, AlumaFab will have custom dies cut to meet your design intent.  There are limitations to die sizes so contact AlumaFab for availability.  Aluminum is preferred due to its weight and strength properties and it is paintable after assembly, however, primed steel supports concealed within the aluminum extrusions are common when spans exceed material and assembly limitations.
Extruded aluminum sunscreens are most commonly attached to the building structure using custom designed aluminum retainers or outriggers.  These elements can also be stiffened with primed steel if span requirements exceed material limitations.  These assemblies can be attached directly to the building structure, curtainwall, sub-framing, or other building cladding material.  Each design is engineered to insure structural stability and compliance with design load requirements. 

  • Extruded aluminum assembly available in spray applied 70% Kynar 500 finishes up to a ten (10) year warranty available.

  • Anodized finishes:  Batch anodizing process for fabricated aluminum products produced with 5005 and 6063 anodizable quality aluminum.  (However due to variances in alloys extruded aluminum, sheet aluminum products, and welds anodize differently and will have visible color variances)
