CRL / U.S. Aluminum Sun Control Systems Manage Sun Light, Reduce Energy Costs, Increase LEED? Points, and Enhance a Building’s Appeal

Post Time:May 22,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:118

Los Angeles, CA — Recent research reveals that improving energy efficiency is a priority for building owners and operators with energy cost savings cited as the number one reason for efficiency programs. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy the top three energy end uses in the commercial buildings sector are space heating, lighting, and space cooling, which represent close to half of commercial site energy consumption.

Controlling the amount of sun light that enters a building can improve energy efficiency, increase the LEED® points for which it qualifies, as well as create a more conducive work environment inside. C.R. Laurence (CRL) Sun Control Systems enable this with a broad array of available systems, materials, and finishes that complement a building’s appearance.

• Sunshade Systems
• Light Shelf Systems
