Most of us look forward to those hot, sunny days but the sun, while so pleasant on a beach, can also be a real nuisance in the home or workplace. Solar radiation flooding a room leads to a marked increase in temperature, particularly through roof windows. The best means of protection comes from use of external awning blinds and shutters, use of which is particularly valuable over south or west facing roofs.
Awning blind reduces energy consumption of air conditioning units, thus reducing operating costs and cutting CO2 emissions. In the same way, it also protects against heat loss in cold temperatures by increasing the heat transfer coefficient up to 16%. The Solar option consumes no electricity as it is powered by a photovoltaic cell.
INFLOW OF NATURAL LIGHT
Windows with awning blinds rather than external roller shutters allow a free flow of light to the interior.
VISIBILITY TO THE OUTSIDE AND PRIVACY
When pulled down, the awning blind ensures visual contact with the external environment. You can easily view the surroundings and yet have privacy from any observers who might be tempted to take a peek inside.
The unrolled awning blind improves the working environment by maintaining an even level of light. It protects against the type of intense light reflection which causes problems to those working on laptops or watching TV. An awning blind will also protect the eyes from strain by providing even light distribution.
PROTECTION AGAINST HARMFUL UV RADIATION
By limiting the penetration of harmful UV radiation, an awning blind protects materials and furniture from ageing and fading.
PROTECTION AGAINST INSECTS
In addition to providing protection against heat gain, the electric awning blind will also act as an insect screen for an open vertical window.
