Sun protection systems for optimal daylight control

As a response to increasing demands from architects and private customers, heroal intensively looked at the subject of sun protection. As a result, different products with a focus on different priorities have been developed and ideally meet individual needs. All heroal sun protection systems are "Made in Germany" and certified by the German testing institute ift Rosenheim. The production process is easy on the environment. The heroal rs hybrid systems stand out for especially smooth running. The textile on the inside creates a cosy atmosphere inside the building.

heroal VS Z corner solution
Zip-guided sun protection system for all-glass corners

The heroal VS Z corner solution is an innovative sun protection system for corner areas, such as all-glass corners. Thanks to lateral zip guides on high-quality stainless steel cables, it integrates discreetly into the building's appearance and offers an uninterrupted view to the outside. The textile screens can be controlled independently – when not in use, they automatically disappear into the heroal FME front-mounted box system (sizes 105 and 125 mm). Areas of up to 9 m² with a maximum width of 3 m and height of 3 m per textile screen can be implemented.

heroal VS Z CS partly integrated
Sun protection system integrated into curtain wall

The partly integrated system heroal VS Z CS with its heroal GR 25 guide rail was designed for a seamless integration of the sun protection system heroal VS Z into post-transom curtain walls such as heroal C 50. The system can be installed on standard post-transom systems with a minimum face width of 50 mm. It is surface-mounted in the classic way using standard sun protection bolts. The screw-on base for heroal VS Z CS partly integrated is provided by an integration profile, which can already be machined with the curtain wall posts in the workshop - this saves time on the construction site. Due to the installation close to the curtain wall, heroal VS Z CS partly integrated is wind-stable up to 145 km/h.

heroal VS C
Functional cable guide, elegant design

The heroal VS C sun protection system comes with a sophisticated cable guide: This variant is particularly suitable for windows and facades with a narrow view width of the profiles.

The heroal VS C offers many design options through the rich colour palette of translucent fabrics.

heroal VS
Well thought-out basis, flexible design options

If you’re looking for a base variant for the heroal VS Z, choose the heroal VS sun protection system: This system is also installed in front of the window, effectively protecting the building from the sun. The heroal VS allows the most varied design options. A rich spectrum of colours and designs is available for curtains. The difference in the zip screen system of the heroal VS Z lies in the guidance of the blind, which is done exclusively via the end slat. The zip system, which is found along the sides of the heroal VS Z, is not present on the heroal VS. This sun protection system is therefore ideal for applications in which wind resistance is not important.

Versatile horizontal blind for patio roofs, conservatories and outdoor sitting areas

As a horizontal blind, the textile sun protection system heroal HS for above-glass installation protects from sun radiation. The little space required makes the unobtrusive integration of this sun protection possible.
