Privacy and energy efficiency

Solar shading combines privacy and energy efficiency so you can create a comfortable and protected living space while improving the energy efficiency of the area.

Why choose sun protection or solar shading from Harol?

There are two types of sun protection; solar shading for windows or solar shading for the terrace. Sun protection for windows is a practical solution to keep intense UV rays outside, to regulate the indoor temperature, to protect your interior against discolouration by UV rays, and to reduce your energy costs.

Sun protection for your terrace, in turn, is a smart choice to enjoy your outdoor space to the maximum. With effective protection against harmful UV rays, it not only provides comfortable, natural cooling on hot days but also increases your privacy.

Whether we are talking about elegant outside venetian blinds, traditional roller shutters or awnings, our carefully curated collection of sun protection solutions are tailor-made for every taste and requirement. With a wide range of styles, colours and materials, you can match your  sun protection to your personal preferences and interiors. Discover the many advantages of sun protection and transform your living space into an oasis of comfort and style.

What are the benefits of sun protection for windows?

The primary benefit of outside sun protection? The sun is prevented from heating up the glass because the screens, outside venetian blinds or veranda sun canopies block the sun’s rays. This natural and energy-efficient method results in a noticeably cooler indoor climate.

Window sun protection also offers greater privacy and fully lowered screens serve as an insect barrier. Discover the benefits of our wide range of outside venetian blinds, roller blinds and screens and invest in a comfortable, energy-efficient living environment.

What are the benefits of sun protection for the terrace?

Folding arm awnings offer a range of benefits so you can get the most from your outdoor space. First, they protect you from damaging UV radiation so you can relax and enjoy the outdoors without worrying about exposure to the sun. Second, a folding arm awning creates pleasant shade and offers natural cooling, keeping the temperature on your terrace comfortable, even on warmer days.

This type of horizontal sun protection improves your privacy while also matching the colour and quality of your outdoor furniture. From an aesthetic point of view, sun protection on your terrace adds a stylish element to your outdoor space, improving not only its functionality but also its visual appeal. In short, with terrace sun protection, you are investing in a comfortable, sheltered and atmospheric outdoor environment.

Why is solar shading so energy efficient?

Solar shading for windows and terraces represents an energy-efficient solution as it provides a natural barrier to the intensity of the sun. By keeping the sun out, sun protection helps to regulate the indoor temperature, reducing the need for excessive use of air conditioning in the summer. This not only leads to energy cost savings, but also supports a reduced ecological footprint. Solar shading also provides insulation in winter, limiting heat loss and reducing the need for heating. In short, sun protection for windows and terraces is an energy-efficient investment that provides cost savings and reduces energy consumption through the seasons.

Why natural cooling

Our mission statement, “We Believe in Natural Cooling,” lies at the heart of all our efforts. We consider smart solar shading to be the most natural and energy-efficient way to block heat. Compare it to a tree providing shade: just as you seek natural cooling under the branches of a tree, sun protection keeps the sun out and your home, patio and workplace pleasantly cool.
