Sun Shading Diagrams for School Buildings. Educational Building Report 2.
This publication provides data on the angles governing the design of sunshading devices for educational buildings in the countries of the Asian region and gives examples of the ways in which these data can be used. Different methods of excluding direct sunlight from teaching spaces are illustrated in a series of diagrams that show exclusion by roof overhang, louvres, adjustable shutters, and grills. Sunshading diagrams for latitudes 32 degrees North to 10 degrees South give the angle of the sun for a variety of building orientations. These angles can be used without further calculation to determine the projection of a sunshade that will exclude sun from the opening it protects. (Author/MLF)
