Vertical, horizontal and sliding blinds as well as louver systems can decisively change the face of a building. Moreover, they can enduringly improve a building's energy balance and (if so desired) can even generate energy by means of photovoltaic modules. At the same time, they enable optimal and thus economic use of daylight and enhance the feelgood factor inside the building.
The Colt company offers highly specialized solutions for solar protection systems and daylight technology for façade structures. Together with the architects and engineers a customized solution is devised for each type of building. The animated façade elements not only have a protective function but also means the architectural appearance of the building can be changed depending on the occasion – it can be rendered more transparent or have a more closed look. There is hardly any limitation to the possible designs and choice of louvers in vertical or horizontal configurations. The Colt product portfolio includes façade elements made of fine extruded metal or perforated metal, with blades made of metal or glass, very colorful blinds. The glass louver system can be expanded to feature photovoltaic elements, thus extending its functional reach.
