Controlite® Façade

The Intelligent Double-Glazed Daylighting System

Intelligent Daylighting Solution

Transform your façade into a dynamic wall of light.

Controlite® Façade integrates sustainable design through rotating louvres that adjust their position throughout the day to transmit the optimal amount of daylight.

This intelligent system balances light levels and solar heat gain to transmit uniformly diffused light, creating comfortable indoor environments in even the harshest climates. By managing the internal temperature of the building environment naturally, energy costs are reduced and user comfort levels are increased.

Comfort, Convenience, Control

Product Advantages

Unique Panel Design

Controlite® is a dynamic façade system comprised of two polycarbonate panels: a special panel with operable internal louvres behind Danpalon® Microcell 16mm thick 1040mm wide glazing panels that create a visually clean flush external finish.

The system uses motorised internal louvres to give complete control over the transfer of heat into a building while optimising daylight transmission levels. The system can withstand the harshest climatic extremes while protecting the building and occupants from UV radiation, weather events and extreme temperatures.

 

Light Optimisation for Façades

Controlite® Façades contain an external sensor that detects the direction of the sun and internal sensors that register the level of light inside the building. The intelligent system then balances light levels, heat gain and shading to transmit appropriately filtered light, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment.

Traditional glazing surfaces reflect the low angle light in the morning, afternoon, and winter. They also introduce too much solar radiation at noon, when the angle of incidence is high. The Controlite® Façade optimises sunlight by adjusting the position of the louvres to suit the angle of the sun’s rays if necessary.

  • Low angle of incidence (morning, afternoon, winter): the Controlite® Façade system sets the position of the louvres to transmit the maximum amount of daylight.

 

  • High angle of incidence (noon): the louvres reflect solar radiation to achieve the perfect balance of light and comfort, reducing heat gain and saving energy costs.

 

Maximise Daylight in Winter, Block Solar Heat in Summer

Controlite® Façade delivers optimal comfort by controlling daylight transmission and solar heat gain with rotating internal louvres. The panels can be used to cover larger translucent areas in any building, optimising light and heat – whatever the season.

 

Reduces Energy Consumption
The Controlite® Façade system adapts to changing light conditions throughout the day for effective control of indoor light, shade and solar heat gain. The system significantly lowers energy consumption by reducing the need for air-conditioning, heating, and artificial lighting.

 

Integrates Sustainable Design
The panels in the Controlite® Façade system integrate into energy-efficient building design, allowing architects and designers to earn credit points with green building rating systems.
