Scottish Widows, Edinburgh, Scotland
A bespoke solar shading system using Accoya® wood on Scottish Widows’ building at Exchange Place, Edinburgh. 1,060 Accoya® wood fins were used in combination with glass fins and Matrix XL Brise Soleil to prevent excessive solar heat gain within the building.
Accoya® wood was chosen for its structural stability, durability and because it is sustainably sourced. Levolux was able to offer a 10 year warranty for the finish and a life expectancy of 60 years. Image © Levolux
