BASS Architectural Sunshades
ACE Glass Manufacturing has the newest technology available and is close enough to allow for shorter transit times and faster turnarounds.
Three Attachment Systems
Bacon’s Architectural SunShades offers three attachment systems designed to mount onto or over your new or existing building’s aluminum storefront and curtainwall systems.
Curtain Wall Attachment
The Curtainwall BASS works well applied to both standard and custom curtainwall framing systems. The economical BASS curtainwall mounting system is designed for commercial glazing companies to quickly measure and mount BASS units onto new or existing curtainwalls without the need to deglazing or reglazing any glass or spandrel. The small BASS blades don’t add much deadload weight and keep the curtainwall performing as originally specified. As all manufacturers’ of CW systems are different, the BASS attachment methods can be customized and tested to confirm overall system performance is available.
Storefront BASS is ideal for quick application on standard center-glazed storefront systems. Designed with small blades to keep initial costs low, the Storefront BASS units come completely assembled and mount quickly.
The Storefront BASS system helps to install glaziers that contain field installation costs. Storefront BASS units are held just far enough off the exterior glass surface to prevent ‘rattle’ and allow for a positive water run-off to prevent dirt build-up and aid hose-cleaning.
Custom Mounted BASS systems are used for unique situations when our standard Storefront BASS and Curtainwall BASS systems won’t work. Our engineers review the project settings and will design custom mounted BASS SunShades as conditions warrant.
