Aluminum Sunshades in Anodized finishes?
What about Anodized Sunshade finishes?
We do not offer an anodized sunshade finish options for two reasons:
- We provide a mechanically fastened louver blade system. Mechanically fastened blades, eliminate unsightly weld marks. As a result, this provides a very clean looking sunshade. We also use stainless screw fasteners for attachment of the blades, which reacts unfavorably during the anodizing process. Because of the superiority of a sunshade finished in assembled units, we cannot offer a true anodized shade. Keep in mind that shades that are held together with welds, do not anodize uniformly at the welds. This creates unsightly color differences.
- Our outriggers are made from high strength T6061 alloy to withstand loading of the sunshade system at the sunshade clip. The sunshade extrusion blades are T6063 alloy, since that is what is required for extruding. These two alloys anodize at different rates, so color differences become evident.
You will find a multitude of painted colors that will match most window systems. The most common are Anodized Silver, Champagne, and Dark Bronze metallic colors. See the Tiger Drylac series 38 colors above for options to match anodized finishes.
