Product Details

External venetian blinds combine the flexibility of tilt adjustable blades with ability to retract completely out of view when not in use. They are a functional and aesthetically pleasing addition to the facade of the home or office.

Using external venetian blinds enormously reduces the amount of solar radiation entering through glass, thereby maintaining a relaxing, comfortable interior environment. External venetian blinds create light-filled working and living spaces reducing the need for artificial lighting throughout the day.

More Information

External venetian blinds are a versatile retractable product that can reduce glare and reduce solar heat gain by up to 90%. The blades can be finely adjusted to provide privacy or filtered light as required. They can also be fully retracted to allow maximum light in and to access glazing for cleaning etc.

The blades are held in place by side guides or stainless steel wire guides which stop the blades being moved in light winds. These blades should be positioned close to glazing if possible. If blades are positioned away from glazing then they must be retracted in strong winds. Wind sensors will automatically retract blades when the wind reaches a certain velocity.

Automatic controls can be included to adjust blades automatically to maintain internal light levels and can be integrated with building management systems (BMS).

Key features and benefits of external venetian blinds include;

 

  • High radiation reflection, low radiation absorption and  low radiation transmission values means less heat entering inside.
  • Fully retractable venetian blinds allows maximum light in low light conditions and easy access to the glazing for cleaning.
  • Easily coupled to control systems to adjust for temperature, wind, rain, humidity and a host of other functions.
  • Infinitely adjustable to cater for all sun conditions.
  • Aluminium and stainless steel components for long service life.
  • Marine grade textile elements requiring minimum maintenance.
  • Good wind stability and retractable for protection in stormy conditions.
  • Broad range of slat styles and widths for different situations.
  • Daylight without heat gain.
  • Able to be integrated into concealed building facade recesses for a low visual impact when retracted.
  • Low embodied energy in manufacture.
