Wood has been traditionally used for many forms of solar shading in the past, and because of its versatility, ease of working, and easy maintenance, has an important role in the design of modern shading devices. One reason for using wood for screening is its attractive appearance, whether left to bleach naturally or finished in any colour. Many forms of sun screening are now becoming an accepted feature in the visual appearance of many buildings, but their primary role will always be to moderate the effect of the sun's rays on the internal environment of the building.

External solar shading with wood:

- deals with external screening devices, comparing nine types now in use.
- describes screening systems that are wholly or partially wood based
- includes metal support systems and metal hardware necessary for operating louvres.
