External Techtonic Louvre Blinds

External Techtonic louvre blinds are a practical solution for reducing heat and glare while protecting interiors from UV damage.


Being a fixed external louvre means they are best suited for situations where constant shading is desired throughout the year.


With a range of aluminium louvre profiles it can be manually operated but would normally be motorised and for maximum energy efficiency linked into automatic or radio remote controls.

Why use External Techtonic Louvre Blinds

The system consists of an aluminium sub frame which is assembled above the area to be covered. Once this sub frame is in place, aluminium louvres are clipped in.


The fully tilt adjustable louvres reduce solar heat gain, control glare, allow outward vision and ensure best use of natural lighting conditions.


Techtonic is a very robust product and is virtually maintenance free. The system adapts to fit almost any glazed area, and provides the solution to the most difficult applications.

Once installed the fully tilt adjustable louvres reduce solar heat gain, control glare, allow outward vision and ensure the best use of natural light.


Energy Saving:

Techtonic external louvres reduce the load from solar gain. Stopping the gain before it reaches the glass is more energy efficient than running artificial cooling. External Techtonic blinds can reject up to 98% of solar gain, actual figures depend on slat colour.


Light control:

External Techtonics excel in light control, beneficial for well-being and comfort but control with shading is essential to minimise lighting costs and maximise visual perception. For daylight control in museums and galleries light levels can be controlled down to as low as 20 Lux with the techtonics.


Glare Reduction and Comfort:
The techtonic louvre system can effectively control the amount of sunlight entering a room, minimising glare on screens and work surfaces. This enhances visual comfort for occupants, creating a more productive and pleasant working or living environment.
