Effective solar management
Modern construction nowadays must meet three criteria: functionality, economy, and at the same time have an interesting design. What's more, investors' expectations are also focused on achieving the greatest possible comfort.
This includes the selection of an appropriate sunshade, which will not only ensure protection of the interior of the rooms from excessive heat, but will also eliminate the glare that can arise on monitor screens. As a result, a properly selected shield will provide users with the right microclimate necessary for work or leisure.

The following solutions are available in aluprof's offer:
Facade blinds are extremely practical sunshades that effectively protect interiors from excessive heat while providing adequate optical comfort. A distinctive feature of this type of products is thefreedom of adjustment of the angle of the slats, which allows you to choose the appropriate degree of shading, and thus individual management by the user.
In addition, aesthetically shaped lamellas in combination with aluminum structural elements (cassettes and guides) give the facade a modern yet original look. The well-thought-out design of this type of solution also allows the creation of larger structures, which makes them often used for large glazing. Thanks to this, blinds are perfect for both public buildings and residential investments. Aluprof offers three variants of facade blinds: adaptive, flush-mounted and self-supporting.
In addition, an innovative solution combining the SkyFlow facade blind system with the Aluprof MB-SR50N mullion and transom facade system has been designed. It was created primarily with a view to object realizations, where full harmony between technical and aesthetic aspects plays a special role. With these considerations in mind, special pressure strips have been designed for the façade mullions, allowing the installation of the façade filling, as well as masking strips, which at the same time act as a guide for the façade blind. Thanks to this, the decision to install this type of cover can be made at a later stage of the project, when the facade is already installed in the building. The entire mechanism of the sunshade is discreetly hidden behind an aesthetic cassette made of extruded aluminum.

SCREEN TYPE SUN VISORS
Screen type sunshades are a very functional solution and are eagerly used both in public buildings and in residential construction. The main advantage of these types of products is the protection of rooms from intense sunlight through the use of specialized technical fabrics. In addition, they protect interiors from the gaze of unwanted people, while maintaining good visibility to the outside.
These solutions also provide an effective optical barrier to light entering the room, minimizing the glare effect that can form on monitor screens. With appropriately selected fabric, they are also a stylish addition that will give the facility a unique character. It is worth remembering that a properly selected screen system can additionally act as a mosquito net, effectively protecting the premises from the presence of insects.
Three systems are available: SkyRoll Zip, SkyRoll Classic and SkyRoll Eco. Particularly noteworthy here is the Zip system. It is extremely innovative due to the use of technology borrowed from the zipper mechanism on the edges of the fabric.
Specially designed two-part guides are thus directly integrated into the fabric, which guarantees maximum sealing and protection of the interior from insects. In addition, the solution used here ensures that the fabric is properly tensioned and firmly seated in the guide, which protects it especially from gusty winds.
EXTERNAL ROLLER BLINDS
External roller shutters are still an extremely practical but underrated solution. In unfavorable weather conditions, they are a barrier that effectively protects the interiors of rooms from heat loss. In turn,in summer they perfectly protect against overheating of interiors at the same time reducing the use of air-conditioning equipment, thereby reducing building operating costs.
Roller shutter installed in accordance with the guidelines of the system provider also has very good acoustic properties, which makes it possible to significantly reduce the perception of noise from outside. Roller shutter systems offered by Aluprof can additionally be integrated with a mosquito net, which guarantees effective protection of rooms from insects. In addition, a properly selected external roller shutter system can provide protection against burglary. Roller shutter curtains most often consist of profiles made of high-quality aluminum sheet filled with foam, with special two-layer varnish coatings in the PU/PA system. This makes them characterized by increased resistance to abrasion and weathering.

The offer also includes profiles characterized by greater rigidity and stability, made of extruded aluminum and plastic profiles, used depending on the selected system. A wide range of colors will certainly allow you to match roller shutters to any façade. Aluprof offers roller shutters in adaptive, flush-mounted and overhead systems.
ANTI-BURGLARY EXTERNAL ROLLER SHUTTERS
In addition, with a view to investors for whom safety is of particular importance, Aluprof has designed 2 anti-burglary roller shutter systems SAFETY PREMIUM (RC3 class) and SAFETY PLUS (RC2 class), which differ in the type of security features. This is because not every roller shutter is anti-burglary, and there are few solutions on the market that have been subjected to specialized testing. Roller shutters with RC class must be characterized by an appropriate design. In products of this type, individual elements, such as guides and bottom slats, must have appropriate reinforcements that prevent the bending and pulling out of the roller shutter profiles.
In addition, the structure of the roller shutter curtain should be made of durable profiles (such as extruded aluminum), which will ensure its resistance to damage during impact. What's more, very often special mechanisms are installed in the lower part of the roller shutter, preventing the closed curtain from being lifted when a manual break-in is attempted from below. In addition, in this type of solution, more durable curtain hangers are used, which often have additional locks that make it difficult to remove the armor.
