They combine modern design with the highest functionality. External venetian blinds by Warema facilitate the design of an individual lighting ambience inside and determine the look of the façade on the outside. They also greatly contribute to the energy efficiency of a building. Various types of external sun shading can be used to suit the particular installation situation. They all have their own unique strengths that make them the ideal solutions for new buildings, retrofitting or refurbishments.
Facade external venetian blind: The all-rounders
These external venetian blinds are easy to integrate in almost any façade, which makes them ideal for a wide range of applications. They are also easy to install without great effort once a building is complete. There is a choice of various slat geometries that, for instance, greatly reduce the slat stack height, darken the room perfectly or can improve the view out.
With a maximum width and height of five metres, facade external venetian blinds will shade even large glass fronts stylishly and yet with the optimum wind stability. No additional attachment of the cover panel to the façade is required with the self-supporting versions, since the cover panel is attached directly to the guide rails. An important argument for the design: the facade external venetian blind can be combined with the Minimax guide rails by Warema which, with only 15 mm visible width, are the narrowest guide rails available on the market. This creates a particularly slender result.
External venetian blind window systems: perfectly integrated in new buildings
External venetian blind window systems are ideal for new buildings because they allow architects and planners to have complete design freedom. Depending on the particular building system, concealed or visible integration in the façade is possible, which means the guide profiles can also be completely embedded in plaster on the front as well. An insect screen can also be included if desired.
Front-mounted external venetian blinds: individually planned for modernisations
Front-mounted external venetian blinds are particularly suitable for modernisations. For the maximum design freedom, these external venetian blinds are available with rectangular, half-round or square cover panels or with cover panels for plastering. No additional box fastening is required, and thermal bridges are reliably prevented with front-mounted external venetian blinds so there is no additional heating requirement at the window. The front-mounted external venetian blinds by Warema are compatible in installation and looks with Warema front-mounted external venetian blinds, so the two can be combined for the perfect aesthetically pleasing effect.
Automatic control for maximum energy efficiency
External venetian blinds develop their full potential for saving energy and for creating a feel-good climate in combination with an automatic control. It ensures that solar energy supports the heating in winter and prevents heat from even entering a room in summer, which lowers the energy consumption for air conditioning and fans. It also allows for the optimum use of natural light, meaning that artificial lighting can also be reduced. The Warema climatronic® 3.0 automatically lowers or raises external venetian blinds according to the time of day, the level brightness or the wind, and the slats can even be adjusted with maximum precision to follow the position of the sun.
Individual features enhance the functionality
A number of features can be added to suit user requirements. The fall protection VisioNeo replaces unsightly bars at floor-to-ceiling windows, the pane blending discreetly with the architecture. In the event of an emergency, the battery-operated emergency retraction set releases doors in seconds by instantly retracting the external venetian blind. And external venetian blinds with the modern additional technology ProVisio offer a greatly optimised view out along with improved visual privacy, as the slat angle is based on the human line of sight over the entire height of the curtain.
Thanks to their ability to blend the outside and the inside, external venetian blinds have a beneficial effect on the people inside a building. At the same time, the choice of colour can also enhance the appearance of the façade. In attractive slat colours and with powder-coated aluminium parts, the shades can be matched precisely to the architecture, whether as an eye-catcher or a harmonious design element.
