Thinking big in every detail

The combination of the certified passive house window system heroal W 77 with the outside textile sun protection system heroal VS Z provides for effective protection against the sun and heat, and represents a well-thought-out solution down to the last detail.

Protection from heat for sustainable living spaces

In times when climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity, energy-saving construction methods and the efficient use of resources are becoming significantly more important in residential and commercial construction. The German Buildings Energy Act (Gebäudeenergiegesetz, GEG), which came into force in 2020, has given energy-efficient construction and modernisation new momentum by setting minimum requirements for the protection of residential and non-residential buildings against the summer heat: In order to keep the energy required to cool rooms in summer low and to avoid overheating, the thermal behaviour of a building must already be taken into account during the planning phase. The combination of the certified passive house window system heroal W 77 with the outside textile sun protection system heroal VS Z provides for effective protection against the sun and heat, and represents a well-thought-out solution down to the last detail.

Product details

heroal W 77

The window system heroal W 77 is the ideal solution for residential and commercial buildings where the requirements for thermal insulation are extremely high. Thanks to different insulation variants, the thermal insulation of the window profile can be individually adapted to achieve values set by architects and planners. With heroal W 77, windows meeting passive house standards can also be created.

heroal VS Z

To protect rooms from overheating, even if they have large glass surfaces, heroal offers the outside zip screen system heroal VS Z as the perfect solution for protection against the summer heat. With a face width of only 25 mm, the extremely slim guide rail sets new standards in the market. Thanks to its robust zip fastener technology, this system even withstands squalls of 145 km/h – also when elements up to 6 m wide and a surface of 18 m² are used for shading large areas.

Functionality and design in every detail

  • Perfectly coordinated colours

    The sun protection system heroal VS Z can be seamlessly integrated into window, door and curtain wall systems from heroal and other manufacturers. The extensive selection of more than 250 standard textiles provides for maximum freedom of design. In addition, the aluminium components of the sun protection can be individually coated with the highly weather resistant heroal hwr powder coating. This way, a perfect colour match can be achieved with the heroal window systems, which are also heroal hwr powder coated. heroal hwr powder coatings are available in RAL colours and, exclusive in the industry, in the colour shades of Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier. With the coating process heroal SD, even more impressive looks (e.g. wood, concrete, rust) can be created.

  • Accessibility

    For maximum living comfort, windows of the system heroal W 77can also be designed as floor-to-ceiling French doors, which, with a maximum threshold height of 20 mm, meet the requirements of the German industry norm DIN 18040 for barrier-free construction. In combination with the drainage system heroal DS, the necessary protection against moisture is ensured, as any emerging surface water is reliably drained off at around 0.8 l/s, running off under a high-quality stainless steel cover.

  • Certified passive house window

    With a small design depth of only 77 mm and a face width of 180 mm, the insulation variant heroal W 77 PH achieves a Uf value of 0.78 W/(m²K), and thus even meets the high requirements of the Dr. Feist Passive House Institute for passive house certification. Compared with other aluminium- compound systems with the same design depth, heroal W 77 PH is the window system with the lowest Uf value on the German market.

  • Easier planning and tendering

    At heroal, fabricators, planners and architects get everything from a single source. The handling of planning processes and bids becomes very efficient, since all the information required is provided by one contact person. This not only saves time, but also increases planning reliability. The aluminium system solutions from heroal can be perfectly combined with each other, and provide for a seamless integration. This way, sophisticated solutions for energy-efficient and sustainable living spaces are created, which at the same time allow for architectural freedom without limitations.

Multifunctional versatility

The window system heroal W 77 as well as the sun protection system heroal VS Z are being used for different types of building. From private residential buildings through public buildings, e.g. schools or hospitals, to projects for commercial use.
