External shading is a very popular solution for heat regulation in continental Europe with external shutters and blinds common in houses in the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Germany and Scandinavia. With these in place, heat is kept out of the home or office before it becomes a problem.
Modern buildings in these countries are also often fitted with external power supply preparation to balconies and house windows to help with this. Providing this additional barrier keeps heat and cold out, saving you money on building heating and air conditioning. Use in conjunction with solar event sensors for complete hands free control of your interior environment.
As well as temperature regulation, external blinds also have the benefit of taking up zero internal floor space. This opens up floorplan options that would otherwise be unavailable for example placing furniture pieces right in front of a window without blocking access to curtains or blinds.
External blinds also present a stunning visual statement, especially when coupled with our state of the art print services to present a sleek cohesive look inside and out.
