Shade – Sun Roof

Mimic the crest of a tree, with Aectual’s 3D printed Sun Roofs: Perfectly tailored digital design to give you a sublime experience in light and shade.

Site-specific Sunshades

The intricate three-dimensional forms of Aectual Sun Roofs can be designed according to the trail of the sun. That way they can provide shade during peak hours, and let more light through in mornings and evenings. Create exclusive patterns that match your private garden or park project – personal designs, unique like no other.

Hand-sketched, digitally produced

Our robotic arms perfectly mimic the design language of your choice. With our software tool you create the atmosphere you want, from an uploaded hand sketch to a rhythmic digital drawing. You can also choose from our existing pattern library. Contact our team for more information.

Recreate nature

Our Sun Roofs offer a natural way of cooling, by proving shade and allowing air to release for extra ventilation. The materials we offer are bio-based plastic made of linseed (in all RAL, NCS, Pantone) recycled plastic (selected colours), or high-res concrete (selected colours)
