« Back to blog

Summer brings hot days and intense sunlight, which can turn your home into a real oven. To maintain comfortable conditions indoors, it's worth investing in products that effectively protect your interiors from the heat. Here is an overview of the best products available at Knall that will help you keep cool and comfortable at home even during the hottest days.

External Sun Protection Blinds

External Sun Protection Blinds are one of the most effective solutions in the fight against heat. Mounted on the outside of the building, they block the sun's rays before they reach the glass, significantly reducing the heating of the interior. These blinds are available in various options, such as aluminium or plastic blinds, which offer excellent thermal insulation.

Advantages of external protection blinds:

Effectively block UV rays
Reduce air conditioning costs
Improve security with anti-burglary function
Additional sound insulation

Screen Blackout Blinds

Screen Blackout blinds are a modern solution that provides effective sun protection while allowing a view outside. Made from special technical fabrics, screen blinds reflect the sun's rays, preventing the interior from heating up.

Heat protection:

Blocking sunlight: Screen fabrics are designed to block most UV rays while allowing natural light to pass into the interior.
Thermal insulation: Screen blinds reduce the amount of heat entering the room, helping to maintain a comfortable temperature at home.
View outside: The unique structure of screen fabrics allows a view outside, which is particularly important for large windows and glazing.

Aluminium Pergolas

Pergolas are elegant and functional structures that not only adorn the garden or terrace but also provide effective sun protection. With various construction options, pergolas can be tailored to individual needs and the architectural style of the house.

Heat protection:

Creating shade: Pergolas effectively create shaded outdoor spaces, helping to maintain a lower temperature on the terrace and inside adjacent rooms.
Shade control: Modern pergolas often come with adjustable roofs or integrated blinds, allowing control over the amount of sunlight entering the interior.
Aesthetics and functionality: Pergolas add elegance to any garden, and their functionality makes them an ideal place to relax even during the hottest days.

Automatic Facade Blinds

Facade blinds combine modern design with high functionality. Mounted on the outside of the building, facade blinds effectively protect interiors from the sun and heat.

Heat protection:

Blocking UV rays: Thanks to special slats, facade blinds reflect the sun's rays, preventing windows and interiors from heating up.
Light control: The ability to adjust the angle of the slats allows precise control over the amount of light entering the room.
Aesthetics and durability: Made from high-quality materials, facade blinds are weather-resistant and add a modern look to building facades.

Fakro Vertical Window Awnings

Fakro window awnings are the perfect solution for those who want to effectively protect their interiors from the sun while maintaining the aesthetic appearance of the windows. These awnings are mounted on the outside, which increases their effectiveness in blocking sunlight.

Heat protection:

Effective sun barrier: Fakro awnings block the sun's rays before they reach the glass, significantly reducing the heating of the interior.
Shade control: The ability to manually or automatically control the level of shade according to needs.
Weather resistance: Fakro awnings are made from materials resistant to UV radiation, rain, and wind, ensuring their long life and reliability.

Roof Blinds for FAKRO and VELUX Windows

Roof blinds are an essential element for any attic. They effectively protect against the sun and heat, which is particularly important for roof windows exposed to direct sunlight.

Heat protection:

Effective blackout: Roof blinds can completely block the sun's rays, preventing the attic rooms from heating up.
Thermal insulation: These blinds create an additional insulating layer, helping to keep rooms cool even during the hottest days.
Easy installation and operation: Available in various options, roof blinds are easy to install and operate, making them a practical solution for any home.

Balcony and Terrace Awnings

Awnings are the perfect solution for those who want to enjoy the fresh air on the balcony or terrace without giving up shade. Awnings can be easily adjusted to individual needs by regulating the angle of inclination and the size of the shaded area.

Advantages of awnings:

Adjustable angle of inclination allows customization of the level of shading
Wide range of colours and patterns to choose from
Weather resistance
Manual or automatic control options

Choosing the right window coverings is key to maintaining a comfortable temperature at home during summer heat. The Knall store offers a wide range of products that not only protect against the sun but also improve the aesthetics of interiors and building facades.
