Halcyon Shades, one of the country’s premier suppliers of solar and traditional shading products for commercial and residential applications, has expanded its plant capacity and moved to a larger facility. The company is now headquartered at 6282 Olive Blvd in University City, a historic St. Louis neighborhood.
“Sustainable products are a top priority for architects and building professionals today,” says Chris Lozano, president of Halcyon Shades. “Our growing line of programmable solar shade products can help meet green building requirements due to the unique heat-reflective, high performance material used in their design. We’ve seen exceptional demand from retail, corporate, healthcare, government, museums and even the cruise industry.”
Halcyon demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by converting a former food pantry into usable plant space. “The warehouse was basically vacant for three years,” says Lozano. “We were able to convert the food shelving systems into storage for our shading components, and purchased additional fixtures from a retailer going out of business.” The company also chose its new location for its immediate proximity to Winco Window Company, a major window manufacturer. The two companies are joint venturing on various product development initiatives.
Halcyon Shades is a technology-based manufacturer and integrator of automated solar control systems and traditional shade products. The company’s products help reduce energy costs through the use of automated solar shields, light harvesting louvers and solar smart windows. Halcyon products can be fully integrated into existing building control systems. Halcyon solar products meet LEED requirements established by the United States Green Building Council.
