The authors consider the problem of design of external stationary sun protection devices, namely, modified multi-component units that are especially effective in the hot and sunny climate of Lebanon.
Apart from their sun protection properties, the proposed units demonstrate effective light-reflecting characteristics in the clear sky environment. These properties substantially increase the value of the daylight factor. The value is mainly increased inside buildings, or in the areas that are located far from sources of natural illumination. The authors propose EF, a new efficiency factor to be taken into account in any calculations of the daylight factor. This factor depends on the shape of the sun protection device installed above the window of the storey below the one under consideration and at a distance from the device under consideration and the window in question. As a result, the new proposals increase the quality of the internal environment and may result in energy saving due to the reduction of the artificial lighting period.

Though the technologies are dynamically developing and there are a lot of research projects, there is still no general opinion on a glass-facade building among the European scientific community, architects and construction engineers. The increasing requirements to heat-protective qualities of translucent structures make us think of the necessity of a quantum leap both in technologies and in principal approaches to the development of architectural and constructive solutions of translucent shells. Together with economical features, the dynamics of heat-protective indicators’ increase show the tendencies to reaching the possibilities limits of mass glass units. The European construction practice usually solve this problem by developing sealed insulating glass units and by different conceptual solutions of the systems of translucent double facades. In the given article the basic theoretical principles and innovative engineering ideas are formulated dealing with the modern glass-facade building construction. “Green Building” conception is analyzed as a European new building philosophy.

Considers the modern building envelope construction with outside skin used as a sun shields. Such a constriction is often used for buildings with low energy consumption. A number of factors besides sun radiation influencing on the performance of facade system in general and every certain parts and elements throughout the entire period of building operation. Subject: multilayer and double skin building facades and sun screens located on their surfaces. Including, dual-use facades combining functions of the sun screen and sub construction for the placement of photovoltaic cells. Materials and methods: the main method was an estimation the aerodynamic and air-thermal characteristics of a double skin façade. Was considered a construction with combined function of a sun shield. The method was previously used in evaluation of the air-thermal regime of hinged facade systems of buildings for cold period of a year. The general approach was advanced and verified by the results of full-scale tests of building facades in the warm period of the year. Results: indicates great influence of air and thermal conditions of air gap in double skin and similar construction facades on performance of façade system in general and on every certain part of it. Conclusions: the construction of complex facade systems with the use of up to date technologies requires additional study of the air-thermal conditions of the air gap between the main facade of the building and its second skin or sun screen. Ignoring the operational features of active sun shields under extreme loads can lead to a decrease in the equipment functionality and its premature failure.
