Less cooling energy during summer


Heat can enter the living space without hinderance. The temperature inside the room is unpleasantly high.


The air circulation between outdoor blinds/Venetian blinds and windows largely eliminates heat transfer via convection.

Less heating energy during winter


In cold temperatures windows and glass facades function like a thermal bridge: The warm air escapes and it becomes unpleasantly chilly in the living area.


When the outdoor blinds/Venetian blinds are closed, an air cushion is created in front of the glass which prevents circulation of air. As a result the warm air stays inside the living area and keeps the cold air outside.

Types Available


  • Alloy blades
  • Variety of connection details


  • Serge Ferrari membranes / fabrics
  • Opatex membranes / fabrics

External Aluminium Venetian Blind Features

The advantages of external blinds include:

  • Heat protection due to reflection of the sunlight in front of the facade
  • Individual adjustment of light with dimming effect due to adjustability of the slats
  • Protection against bad weather due to a stable and secure closing process
  • Wind resistance
  • Reduction of energy consumption
  • Long lifespan
  • Individual design of all products

Venetian blinds are suitable for inside and outside installation and primarily control the sunlight. Venetian blinds are mainly used indoors. Unlike outdoor blinds, which are equipped with a lateral guide rail, Venetian blinds are only fixed to the upper edge of the window; available for AR 63 ECN.
