Markisolette Blinds

Hemera Markisolette is an external blind that drops as a roller blind down the top part of your window and then comes out on its side arms as an awning.

The Markisolette fabric reduces solar gain and the neat side guides and drop arms allow clear vision and good ventilation.

External shading provided by the Markisolette is essential to prevent overheating especially in passive house and low energy buildings.


Hemera Markisolette awnings can reduce the load from solar gain by up to 90%. Stopping the gain before it reaches the glass is more energy efficient than paying to remove it.

Why use Markisolette Blinds?

Installing Hemera Markisollete blinds on your building can significantly enhance its performance in various ways.


Energy Efficiency
Markisollete blinds help in reducing energy consumption by providing excellent insulation. They block out heat during the summer, keeping the interior cool, and help retain warmth during the winter, reducing the need for air conditioning and heating. This leads to lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint.


Glare Reduction and Comfort

These blinds effectively control the amount of sunlight entering a room, minimizing glare on screens and work surfaces. This enhances visual comfort for occupants, creating a more productive and pleasant working or living environment.


UV Protection

Markisollete blinds protect interior furnishings, flooring, and artwork from harmful UV rays. By blocking a significant amount of UV radiation, they help prevent fading and deterioration of materials, thereby extending the life and appearance of interior elements.


Aesthetic Appeal and Versatility

Available in various styles, colours, and materials, Markisollete blinds can complement any architectural design. They add a sleek, modern look to buildings while providing functionality. Additionally, their adaptability allows them to be used in different types of spaces, from residential homes to commercial offices.

Here are some places where Markisolette blinds are particularly effective:


Residential Homes

Markisolette are ideal for homes, particularly for windows that receive a lot of direct sunlight. They help in reducing heat and glare while still allowing some visibility and natural light.


Balconies and Terraces

Markisolette blinds are excellent for shading balconies and terraces, providing a comfortable outdoor space by blocking excessive sunlight and heat.


Commercial Buildings

In office buildings, Markisolette’s are useful for controlling sunlight and reducing glare on computer screens, thereby enhancing employee comfort and productivity.

How to Control

Hemera Markisolettes can be manually operated from within the building but for ease and convenience Hemara blinds are motorised.


For optimum energy saving they should be automatically controlled to react to varying weather conditions and can be linked to a Building or Home Management System.
