The roof can keep rain away from the entrance ways reducing the amount of puddles and overflowing gutters splashing the front door.

Louvre Roofs provide an effective solar shading solution for architectural design projects where large elevations of glazing are used to the entrance way. By using fully automated louvres you can immediately stop or reduce the amount of solar radiation that can penetrate an elevation of glass.

Users have control over the glazing to either heat a space through solar gain during winter months or cool by shading internal spaces during the warmer summer time. The fully automated louvre of the Umbris system, can create a completely water tight roof with integrated drainage system, a perfect solution for protecting entrance ways.
