Solar shading can have an important benefit on the environment in buildings by reducing glare and overheating, and can provide valuable savings in cooling energy. This Information Paper describes the shading systems commonly used in retrofit applications, and gives guidance on their selection and design. It will be of interest to building owners and facilities managers, energy auditors, interior designers and architects. It replaces BRE Information Paper 11/02, which is now withdrawn.
