SolarTrac® 4.0

The Pinnacle of Solar Management for Optimum Performance 
Mecho’s state-of-the-art automated shading system has been enhanced to make shade automation easier and more efficient than ever. Designed to maximize the natural daylight in your building, increase energy efficiency across multiple glass facades, ensure occupant comfort and performance, and improve building energy management—all while preserving valuable views to the outside.
