Infill Sunshades:
Our infill sunshades combines two areas of expertise that Ohio Gratings offers into a single product. Typically made from aluminum or carbon steel, infill sunshades use grating as a shading element. With a wide variety of spacings and depths available, Ohio Gratings can offer a grating solution to meet any required shading requirements. Swaged (SG), Dovetail (ADT), Louvered (LG) and Egg Crate (EG) grilles are the most common grating elements utilized in these systems. Sunshade+ is also another option available which offers both shading options as well as a walking surface that can be utilized for maintenance work.

Solid sheet and perforated Sunshades:
Our sheet metal sunshades allows for a more custom look on your building. These shades are usually made of an internal aluminum skeleton frame and wrapped with fabricated sheet metal of varying gauges dependent on loading requirements. These shades allow for a more solid or monolithic appearance at a much lower weight, especially where dead load is of concern. Another option that is offered is perforated metal sheet. This allows for a reduced, yet still effective, shading coefficient while adding more architectural features to your building.
