heroal VS Z – The sun protection solution for corners

Verl, April 2023. With the growing demand for transparency and daylight through large glass surfaces in residential and commercial buildings comes an increasing desire for efficient shading solutions. With the heroal VS Z corner solution, the aluminium systems supplier heroal offers a zip screen system for corner areas (e.g. all-glass corners) that provides efficient glare, privacy and heat protection with just a single cable guide.

The heroal VS Z corner solution consists of two textile screens with zip guide on the sides and a cable guide in the corner area that ensure efficient sun protection at corners (e.g. all-glass corners). A particularly clever feature: The curtain is guided with separate end strips, both of which run in just a single cable guide. This means that the screens can be controlled independently of each other and variably adjusted to the position of the sun. Areas of up to 9 square metres per textile screen are possible. In order to provide protection against insects in addition to glare, privacy and heat protection, the heroal VS Z corner solution can be combined with insect protection doors or tension frames through the use of spacing profiles and matching decorative caps.
In addition to the functional advantages, the heroal VS Z corner solution also scores points aesthetically. Around 250 standard textiles are available for the selection of the textile screen – from semi-transparent to allow daylight inside the building to opaque to darken the interior almost completely. When the textile screen is not in use, it disappears in the heroal front-mounted box system (size: 105 and 125 millimetres). The stainless steel cable guide provides a delicately designed connection between the textile screens in the corner area. The discreet design is further enhanced by the lateral curtain guide in guide rails with a particularly narrow elevation of only 25 millimetres. Guide rails and box system are available on request. The coating of the extruded components with the highly weather-resistant heroal hwr powder coating creates additional scope for design.
