Facade blinds - external sun protection

Facade blindsis a modern and stylish type of covers installed on the external side of windows. They are usually associated with large, glazed buildings, however, facade blinds are more and more often used in private homes. This is mainly due to the fact that their construction is light and simple, thanks to which they blend in perfectly with various architectural styles. In addition, they are a great solution with large glazing, and these are now extremely fashionable in modern construction.

Na czym polega wyjątkowość żaluzji fasadowych? W sumie kryje się to w ich nazwie. Facade blinds działają identycznie jak klasyczne żaluzje wewnętrzne, to znaczy, że dzięki ich budowie możemy regulować dopływ światła do pomieszczeń poprzez odpowiednie ustawienie lameli.

Facade blinds w praktyce
Facade blinds mogą być zakładane w budynkach będących w trakcie budowy lub budynkach już oddanych do użytkowania. Przy budynkach gotowych stosuje się Surface-mounted facade blindswhile in those under construction -flush-mounted.

As it is an external shield, only materials that meet the highest quality requirements are used in production; they are additionally fixed thermally. They must be resistant to various weather conditions (intense sun, wind, rain, hail, snow, etc.) so that they do not lose their aesthetic appearance and do not mar the building . The slats (horizontal louvre slats) are made of profiled aluminum and can take the shape of the letter C or Z. The choice of shape, of course, depends on the design of the building and what will be better composed with it.

The louvre slats are controlled by an electric drive with a remote control. The principle of their operation is the same as in the case of internal blinds. Depending on the time of the day, the intensity of the sun or the angle of its incidence, we open the slats so that the rooms get only as much light as we need at a given moment. This is an important advantage of facade blinds - only certain types of external blinds provide natural light, and facade blinds belong to this group. Thanks to the inflow of sunlight in the rooms, you can function freely. At the same time, after the lamellas are completely covered, the building is effectively protected against heating in summer and against heat loss in winter. This is due to the airbag formed between the window pane and the shutter armor.

Building aesthetics
Facade blinds, jak wszystkie osłony na www.knall.com.pl, produkowane są na wymiar. Dlatego łatwo dopasować je do indywidualnego projektu. Wybór kształtu lameli (listew) pozwala podkreślić wygląd elewacji od zewnątrz; przy całkowicie opuszczonych żaluzjach.

The choice also applies to the color and width of the lamellas. The color palette has been selected so that it is easy to choose a color that matches the design of the facade. Similarly, the differentiation of the width of the lamellas is to make it easier to match the façade blinds to the appearance of the building so that it harmonizes with each other and the finished design looks aesthetically.
