Energy & Climate
Solar shading systems don't just help you prevent overheating and glare, they also allow you to save energy. More than 40% of the primary energy consumed in Europe goes into building construction and use. If automated and controlled correctly, solar shading systems can reduce energy requirements by 10%. 2/3 of this reduction occurs in the summer when the cooling load is reduced and 1/3 in the winter by reducing the need for heat.
In summer, when the sun is shining and it's hot outside, blinds and rolling shutters are worth their weight in gold. They can reduce heat radiation levels, producing a pleasant room temperature and you can cut the amount of electrical energy used to cool rooms.
In the winter, an intelligently controlled solar shading system diverts solar energy into the room, thereby cutting heating costs. It's good for your wallet – and good for the environment.
