Solinear provide, bespoke, innovative, engineering designed solutions to all aspects of horizontal or vertical timber solar shading and timber louvre screening requirements. The Solex MEDERA range of wooden shading and louvre blade profiles, along with integrated structural support structures, provide a comprehensive solution to enable the stylish provision of solar shading or louvre screening to a building facade using the natural beauty and character of wood.
Not all wood types are suitable for use in timber louvre and solar shading systems. Solinear offer design advice on selection of suitable woods and also their associated durability and structural performance properties. Typical wood types to consider would be Western Red Cedar, Meranti, European Oak, Douglas Fir, Larch along with Thermowood and Accoya. Where required Engineered Timber solutions are also available. There are no standard blade profile geometries, timber offers complete bespoke design flexibility as all profiles originate from a simple rectangular plank section suitable for machine processing to any given shape.
Our MEDERA product range includes the complete Design, Manufacture and Contract Installation of static and operating timber solar shading, timber louvre screening, timber louvre door systems along with 'hybrid' ALU-TIMBER solutions which combines the structural stability and homogenous nature of extruded and sheet aluminium alloy with natural timber to provide robust shading or louvre screening solutions. Galvanised mild steel and stainless steel materials have also been used alongside timber.
Solinear thrive on the design challenges that occur when trying to implement the use of timber within the construction build of the solar shading, brise soleil and louvre screening systems that the project requires, nothing is ‘standard’ to us.
