Why add Eaves? Because they can enhance the aesthetic design of your Pod.
The primary function of Eaves is to help keep rainwater off the windows whilst reducing any splatter on the walls from rain hitting the ground.
The secondary function is to control solar penetration as the Eaves overhang the structure by 450mm, creating some shade as the sun moves across the sky. In many local council regions across the eastern coastline, Eaves can play a vital part in the Energy Efficiency Rating of buildings such as Pods, and are now required in some cases.
Blades Walls can only be fitted with Eaves and are an additional design feature. The function of Blade Walls can vary depending on the site, but most add some privacy from the neighbour’s side, or protection from prevailing winds whipping around the corner. Blade Walls can also offer extra shade when the sun is low in the western sky, depending on positioning.
