Engineering Features - Shading
The CU design utilizes four types of shading devices: fixed overhangs, vertical fins, sliding "barn" doors, and a "Florida" shade. Fixed overhangs provide full shading on all south glazing from approximately Apr 21 Ð Aug 21. For the west side of the bedroom, vertical fins will be used for shading. The western side of the living/office area and the eastern side of the bedroom will have a sliding shading device with small louvers, referred to as a "barn door", so occupants will be able to see out of the space but the direct sun will be blocked. The southeastern window in the living/office area contains a moveable shade, referred to as a "Florida" shade, which can be lowered or raised.
