Exterior shades – protection from the outside world
You can choose from a wide variety of roller systems (top-mounted, front-mounted, flush), exterior venetian blinds (visible mask, flush mask) screen rollers, sun breakers and shelves.
Roller blinds are shades that allow us to protect from the outside against various external influences and unwanted gazes. They achieve the full dimming of the room, but they also offer excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. They protect us from burglaries (burglary protection) and protect against the intrusion of annoying insects (with an integrated mosquito net in a shutter box). ALU shutters are made of aluminium shell and filled with insulating foam whereas PVC lamellas are plastic, cheaper, but also less efficient. The shutters can be driven manually or electrically all of which have the option of installing an integrated insect screen.
Top-mounted roller shutters
Mounted on the window in the interior when installing the window. The housing is made of extruded plastic and is additionally quality insulated. The visible part of the housing in the room can be in different RAL colours or coated with a rennet foil. The inner cover from the lower or front side makes it easy to access the blinds for service.
Front-mounted roller shutters
The front-mounted roller system is mounted on the outside of the window directly on the window frame. In special cases it can also be mounted on the facade. Installation is simple and quick. You can choose among many different types of housings (pentagonal, square, oval, semi-circular), housing colours, guides and shutters thus affecting the outer appearance of the building.
Front-mounted flush roller shutters
A system for new construction and adaptation, where the facade is also being renovated. Similarly to front-mounted systems, the flush system is mounted directly on the outer window frame or lintel, but before completing the facade. The roller housing is also a plaster holder onto which the plaster is applied so that the housing is not visible. The openings can be easily accessed if service is required.
The exterior venetian blinds
The exterior venetian blinds are shades that are suitable for installation on both commercial and residential buildings. They effectively protect your space from weather influences especially from overheating the rooms. They are also suitable for shading large surfaces (larger dimensions of openings). By adjusting the angle of the shutters, the exterior blinds allow you to control the amount of light and privacy in the room. They also allow the flow of light in lowered state, which is their advantage compared to other external shades.
The exterior venetian blinds can be operated manually or electrically, all of which have the option of installing an additional insect screen.
The exterior venetian blinds with a visible mask
The classical exterior venetian blinds come with a visible upper cover mask.
The flush outer blinds can be installed at the same time as the installation of the windows before the façade (Modul, Invisa and Krater systems) or after the façade is finished (Krpan system – classic blinds implementation). In this case, when installing windows, only the flush mask of the outer blinds is installed, and after the façade is finished, the external blinds are installed. The flush exterior blinds are suitable for new buildings and adaptations of houses where the investor wants to work on a new facade.
If we do not want the folded blinds to interfere with the bright part of the window, it is important that we have the possibility to raise the blinds above the window, which can be solved by pre-making a tooth in the lintel or by installing the window in parallel with the outer part of the wall. The mask of flush blind is covered with a facade so it is not visible (or negligible) from the façade side. This means that it is the ideal solution for cases where we do not want to significantly influence the appearance of the building.
External screen rollers
Because of their usability and simplicity, the rollers have a long tradition in our country and are also attractive in modern architecture. They offer a wide selection of colour patterns and materials with different light transmission. The outer housing and guides are made of high-quality thick aluminium and are available in all colours in the RAL scale. There are several versions of the rollers distinguished by shape, dimensions, materials, method of assembly …
Sun breakers are shades that are much more compact and more resistant, but at the same time dimensionally larger than other standard shades. In combination with facade, in addition to their basic shading function, they also contribute to a more beautiful outer appearance, while also contributing to additional thermal insulation. Sun breakers can also be used as protection or fences for different types of terraces. Brushes may have flexible or fixed shutters.
The exterior shutters
The exterior shutters are a traditional system of protection and darkening of the spaces that are most common in the Mediterranean architectural space. Due to the high aesthetic level, the facade of each building is embellished. Exterior shutters are available in ALU material with movable or fixed shutters.
