Construction Specialties’ Complete Line of Solarmotion Controllable Exterior
Sunshades Offer Stunning Aesthetics and Optimal Performance
Construction Specialties’ complete line of sun controls, including Solarmotion™ controllable
exterior sunshades, offers designers the architectural flexibility that is required to meet the

Solarmotion systems are designed to create a dynamic façade that responds to the outside environment in order to
reduce energy consumption and maximize occupant comfort.
Dual position light-control Venetian blinds are also available. Special, highly reflective slats located in the
upper portion of the blind re-direct light thereby providing glare-free illumination deep into the building. The
lower portion of the blind provides shading fo
