An egg crate shading device combines horizontal and vertical shading elements to create optimal shading for the window. It is generally used in hot, harsh climates due to its efficient shading of windows. The horizontal and vertical elements work together to reduce glare and heat transfer and still allow optimal daylight. The horizontal elements block harsh sunlight from the sun at a higher altitude and the vertical elements block the same from the lower altitudes. The angle, size and location of the shading device can be determined by the location’s sun path. They can be aesthetically designed to give a good elevation while still protecting the façade from harsh sunlight and radiation.
