Solar shading

Comfort for every season

Getting sufficient daylight is important for our well-being. And when you know that we spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, you begin to understand why large glass areas are so popular. They are good for fulfilling the demand for natural light, but unfortunately, the simultaneously present a new challenge: how do you avoid it becoming unbearably hot indoors on hot days in the most efficient way? Renson outdoor solar shading blocks the sunrays before they reach the glass and heat up your indoor areas.

What types of solar shading are there?

There are 2 types of solar shading: indoor and outdoor solar shading. You can choose the ideal solar shading from a wide range of solutions for every application. The system that best suits your needs differs from project to project. Renson focuses on outdoor solar shading because it offers the most efficient solution for indoor overheating. Indoor solar shading does block out light, but much less heat. Outdoor solar shading blocks heat efficiently in 2 different ways. It is an interesting choice for both new construction and renovation projects.

What is outdoor solar shading?

The most sustainable method to prevent overheating? That is outdoor solar shading. IT prevents the sunrays from shining directly on the window and increasing the temperature inside. Close the outdoor blinds or the blades of brise soleil shading during the summer to block the sun’s heat and prevent the high sun from gaining easy access to the windows. In the meantime, you can continue to enjoy the incoming daylight without losing the view to the outside while still enjoying minimal disturbance from reflections on screens or discolouration of your interior from UV rays.

Raising your solar shading or pushing it away from the window during colder periods will allow you to take maximum advantage of the solar heat to reduce your energy costs. The best of both worlds.

What are the advantages of solar shading?

Summers are getting warmer and heat waves are becoming more common. It is therefore a challenge to tackle overheating in the house in a structural and energy-efficient manner. And this is especially true in highly insulated and airtight buildings that make it difficult to remove the heat once it warms up inside. Prevention is better than cure. In addition, enjoy many of the other advantages.

  • Reflections of sunlight on screens are a thing of the past.
  • The UV rays do not discolour your interior.
  • You can still see outside.
  • Brise soleil shading adds an architectural eye-catcher to your façade.
  • More privacy is created when a privacy fabric or moving blades in the sliding panels are chosen.
  • The outdoor blind head box takes up less space in the cavity than a roller shutter box.

A comfortable indoor climate through solar shading

Indoor temperature is an important aspect of a healthy indoor climate, in addition to ventilation for clean indoor air and pleasant acoustics. A stable temperature significantly increases living comfort. Ideally, living spaces should be between 18 and 22 °C. In the winter you turn the heating up a degree, in the summer you want to keep it pleasantly cool.

Solar shading for inside or outside?

Solar shading is available for both indoor and outdoor use. So why do we explicitly opt for outdoor solar shading at Renson? Simple: because it is the most efficient and practical. While indoor solar shading blocks 35-65 % of the heat energy, outdoor solar shading – in combination with sufficiently good glazing – blocks 85-95 %. Outdoor sun protection blocks the sun’s heat before it even reaches the glass. Thanks to its results-driven technology and a focus on attractive design, outdoor solar shading from Renson also contributes positively to the architecture and appearance of your home.

Solar shading as a weapon against overheating

Tackling overheating is not a black and white story. Solar shading and air conditioning are complementary. Outdoor solar shading is a solid foundation for keeping out the sun’s heat, especially if you combine it with night cooling. An air conditioner can be used during peak times to add some extra cooling power for your indoor spaces. Without investing in solar shading however, an air conditioner will consume a lot of energy, with the corresponding sky-high bill, and only ultimately contribute to even warmer summers. So, start with the basics, with efficient and effective natural outdoor solar shading.

How does solar shading work?

The purpose of solar shading is to keep out the heat from the sun. Outdoor solar shading will block the sunrays before they reach the glass and is therefore the most effective solution. You can also maintain an optimal light level inside and the view to the outside.

The screen fabric rolls up and down in the side guiding channels, which are made windproof by means of a zip, and it is all controlled by high-quality motors. As a result, depending on the season and your wishes, you can roll out the outdoor blinds at any time you like. Use the remote control or Renson Connect app for maximum flexibility at any time. Or the outdoor blinds can be connected to smart sensors to guarantee optimal operation.

Choosing brise soleil shading, the sliding panels hang in rails with brackets and trolleys. They can then be slid in front of the window manually or mechanically in order to regulate how much solar heat enters the house at any time.

Enjoy shade in the garden all year round

Coming home to a pleasantly cool house is what we all crave during the summer. At the same time, we want to enjoy the outdoor environment to the fullest. A Renson pergola or garden room means you have extra living space in the garden. You can keep the heat out as much as possible here too using outdoor blinds or sliding panels.

A clear answer to frequently asked questions

Outdoor blinds are a useful and interesting addition to your project. However, you may still have a few practical or technical questions. Or maybe you would like to know what outdoor blinds mean for the architecture or maintenance of your home? We can answer this and more in the frequently asked questions.

If you have glass areas exposed to direct sunlight, solar shading is worth considering. This is especially true in new-build homes in which much attention has probably been paid to insulation and in which, without outdoor blinds, solar heat can quickly get trapped inside, which is then difficult to get it out again. Even if you renovate and insulate, you can limit the risk of overheating by investing in solar shading. In addition, you can limit disturbing reflections from the low sun.

Why choose electrical solar shading?

Dynamic character is one of the strengths of Renson outdoor solar shading. From optimal absorption of solar heat in the winter to the prevention of overheating in the summer. You can simply close or open the outdoor blinds clicking a button on the remote control, via the app, or allowing them to be controlled automatically via smart sensors. Do you plan to add outdoor blinds to an existing home? You do not even have to pull wiring for the control thanks to our solar-powered sun protection fabric. Do you already have sliding panels from Renson? Add a simple switch to the window and operate it electrically.
