Specialty Timber Venetian Blinds - solar shading system

The installation of Horiso® Specialty Venetian Blinds using timber, controls internal solar heat gain and glare while maximising natural light.
Architecturally, Horiso Specialty Venetian Timber Blinds, evoke a rich feeling of warmth within the building as well as presenting a lighter appearance.

Horiso's approach includes only using timber from environmentally responsible sources that guarantee the sustainability of the plantation. The high quality timber and mill processes provide long term benefits including product appearance, strength and operation. In addition, timber stability is high, leading to increased longevity. During installation the blinds are perfectly aligned, enhancing the quality of the product internally and overall facade design. Motrorised control will automatically raise, lower and tilt the slats. Energy efficiency levels are optimised, contributing to the higher Green Star rating credentials.

Horiso Specialty Timber Venetian Blinds can be manually operated, or automated using Climate Ready® Control Systems.
