New in-glass-blinds solution makes buildings healthier, more comfortable, and more sustainable (Press release)
Electrostatic E-Blinds control sunlight and its warmth dynamically and in every angle. The first fully- fledged solution to manage daylight in atriums, skylights, conservatories, etc.
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – On Glasstec (Düsseldorf, 20-23 September), Daylight solutions (E- Blinds, in-glass-blinds technology) and Verosol (metallised fabrics) introduce a new and patented in-glass-blinds technology that masters natural light and its heat in situations where this was previously not or hardly possible. E-Blinds’ electrostatic control allows the positioning of the in- glass-blinds at any angle, from vertical to horizontal, as well as continuous adaption to the ever changing daylight. The Verosol metallised cloth of the blinds ensures unique sunlight and heat control to create an almost perfect natural shade in any environment where sunlight is admitted in a building.
New opportunities to master sunlight and its heat
The electrostatic control of E-Blinds works entirely without mechanical parts such as cords, chains and engines. That enables to position E-Blinds in horizontal and sloped roofs, for example in atriums, skylight streets, but also in tilt and turn windows. A window with E-Blinds can have any form, round, square or rectangular. For the first time it is possible that blinds can be positioned in any position in a window that is placed in any given angle from vertical to horizontal.
Dynamic regulation of sunlight and its warmth
The simple and effortless operated in-glass-blinds determine the amount of direct sunlight that is allowed in any part of a building. Opening and closing of the E-Blinds together with the reflection value of its Verosol fabrics enable the creation of an ideal natural shadow and temperature for any given activity. The blinds are provided with an aluminium layer which reflects the sunlight as well as its heat whilst dealing with the annoying side effects such as glare on (computer, TV, …) screens and excessive warming of spaces. By this the E-Blinds/Verosol system saves energy as well.
Always an outside view
With E-Blinds the amount of outside view can be adjusted while maintaining privacy. Even in the fully closed position the Verosol fabrics allow always some outside view to give people a sense of freedom. By including the E-blinds control in a building management system, buildings can be even more healthier, more comfortable and more sustainable. And attractive, as any window or glass batch can now be equipped with the same blinds.
Roald Vandepoel, CEO of Daylight Solutions on E-Blinds: ” Natural elements such as daylight and its heat have an extremely positive effect on the energy, health and comfort of people and the sustainability of buildings. People feel comfortable in rooms with lots of glass. With the E-Blinds / Verosol solution one can now dynamically adjust the ever changing sunlight and its warmth radiation to create an ideal environment to live and to work. “
Conny Pasman, Manager Innovation & Business Development at Verosol: ” The E-Blinds technology provides new opportunities to people in buildings to benefit from the unique light and heat reflection of our metallised fabrics. We are pleased that our fabrics now have value for people in areas where this previously was not possible. “
Daylight Solutions’ E-blinds with Verosol metallised fabrics will be demonstrated on the Glass Tech Glass Technology Live, Hall 11, Stand D24.
