Islander® sunshades, fabricated using the flagship, Islander® panel, suit a variety of sun control applications. They can be fixed overhead between structures as in walkways, or mounted on supporting structures on building facades. A most popular method is “top mounting” using a continuous hinged header and fixed or stays or adjustable extension arms. Because of their flexibility and inherent aesthetic value, they are used widely across the industry in residential, commercial and institutional applications. They come in pre-assembled panels and are available in a wide range of architectural finishes.
