EXTERNAL VENETIAN BLINDS
The External Venetian Blind is possibly the most quintessential solar blind. It can be lowered and raised while the slats can be tilted to provide optimum visual conditions. As an external application it is sturdy yet discrete and one of the most effective methods of solar shading.
Why External Venetian Blinds?
Hunter Douglas External Venetian Blinds require minimum space for maximum efficiency. External blinds are the most effective window covering for reducing heat gain and keeping solar radiation on the outside of a window. By adjusting the slat angle the user can find the balance between shading and delighting under any weather condition or sun angle. When shading is not required the blinds can be fully retracted to allow full daylight and an outward view.
- Best of both worlds: optimum shading and optimal outside view at any moment
- Keep out up to 90% of thermal gain on the window
- Choice of various slat widths from 50 to 100 mm
- Heavy duty operating mechanisms, manual or motorised
- Recycled content rate of 92% for HD5050 alloy
- Quick-to-open solutions for emergency exits
External Venetian Blinds are the best choice when looking for efficient and cost-effective sun control with maximum flexibility and functionality. Modest in appearance, the blinds can be integrated into most facades, contributing to the building aesthetic without overpowering it.
Colours & Finishes
All External Venetian Blind slats are pre-coated with Anorcoat ® conversion coating system and colour coated with stove enameled polyester paint. A wide range of colours is held in stock and any colour can be matched on a project basis. For more aggressive environments special alloys and coatings are available. Bottom rail and side channels can be silver anodized or powder coated to match the slats.
Health and wellbeing
The Hunter Douglas Architectural range of ceiling products contribute to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting the health and well being of their occupants is arguably the most important function of building. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.
Environmentally sound materials are the key to a sustainable building. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We have optimised our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.
Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effective management of the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.
