Reception Shading

  • Project: Atrium Shade Sails, Ordnance Survey
  • Description: Reception Shading
  • Client: Ordnance Survey
  • Location: Southampton
  • Applications: Feature Sunshade Reception
  • Frame: Powder Coated Mild Steel
  • Ref: 2239

Our client, Ordnance Survey, had a very exposed atrium/reception area at their Southampton HQ that was flooded with light, resulting in unpleasant sun glare and heat for reception staff and visitors in the reception. 

They needed a prompt solution. We carried out a sun path analysis so that we could strategically size and place fabric sails in the exact location to solve the problem. Based on the sun path findings, we then designed 9 no. sails which are now installed and positioned to prevent sunlight and glare. 

In terms of installation, we detailed up a strap clamp which clamps around the existing columns but are easily removed should the existing reception configuration change, without any damage to the uprights.
