Sunlight can have a positive impact on building interiors. It can reduce electrical lighting usage and create vibrant environments that boost occupant comfort. Direct sunlight on the building envelope must be properly managed, however; otherwise it will place a heavy burden on interior cooling systems, resulting in higher energy consumption.

Sunshades play an important role in reducing solar heat gain and improving energy efficiency. When properly selected and installed, they can help mitigate the adverse effects of direct sunlight on the building envelope, particularly during the summer months when the sun is at its peak and glass façades are most vulnerable.
