The sun protection systems developed by Atena include both sunshade staves for mounting on a carrier and models in shaped blades form for direct mounting on the back structure.
Atena’s sunshade staves are installed on the forometries by simply connecting them to the carrier. The angle of inclination of 20°|30°|45° is fixed and determined by the supporting carrier. Tested for wind resistance according to EN 13659, the hooked staves fall into class 6. This is the maximum required by the standard in terms of resistance to the threshold values of nominal pressure (400N/m2) and safety pressure (600N/m2).
In order to ensure proper expansion between the elements, the staves can be overlapped or joined by means of special expansion joints, which create the visual effect of a gap. For special applications it is possible to provide a gap breaker profile.
Easy to install, hooked staves are either fixed directly to the concrete or screwed to a special metal frame fixed to the wall of the building at a standard spacing of 1m, which can be reduced to 500mm at the base of buildings, balconies or terraces where the staves may be walked on. Originally conceived as a solar shading element to be applied to the forometries, sunscreen staves can also be used as a cladding system for the entire building. This is a solution that requires the use of special made to measure closure panels.

6 CLASS – EN 13659
The Atena Linear staves tested according to EN 13659 standard, achieved the 6th class of wind resistance.
The maximum required by the standard, in terms of resistance according to the threshold values of the nominal pressure (400N/m2) and the safety pressure (600N/m2).
The nominal pressure corresponds to the applied pressure for which the product must not undergo deformation or deterioration that could damage its correct functioning, while the safety pressure corresponds to the applied pressure for which the product must not undergo any deterioration that could be dangerous for the people such as breaking, leaking from fasteners or tightening devices.
