Retractable Screens

We have a match for every possible need

Intense sunlight is very common in North America, but the advantages of solar screens are little known. At heroal, we’ve devised a system of modern sun protection with the highest degree of flexibility. Interiors are protected against light and heat, without completely darkening the room. On the exterior of a home, heroal’s retractable screens can withstand the toughest weather conditions, operate unobtrusively, and can be adapted to suit the design and size of any building. With heroal’s innovative sun protection products, there’s no need to compromise.

What Distinguishes heroal Sun Protection Systems?

Heat and Bugs stay out

With heroal retractable screens, bugs and insects can be kept outside, and interiors can be evenly lit between sunshine and shadow. Sun exposure is reduced by 75% without losing any daylight. Depending on the type of material, rooms can be partially or completely darkened.

Efficient Temperature Control

Our textile sun protection helps you reduce your energy bills, as average heat inflow is reduced. At the same time, our solar screens filter UV radiation by up to 98%. With the heroal retractable screen, you can create a room climate that is SIMPLY BETTER.

Protection from high winds

Thanks to the innovative zip technology applied to the retractable screen, this system defies even the strongest wind, as the fabric is firmly anchored in the guides by a zipper. This means that the screen system will not be forced upwards even at high winds of up to 90mph.

Design Possibilities for Textile Screens

Solar protection fabrics are technical fabrics that prevent the infiltration of excessive heat and sunlight. External sun protection reduces overheating effects. The hot sunbeams are prevented from coming into contact with the glass surfaces. In addition to this functional role, the fabric also provides a decorative element. The colour provides heat transfer, light filtering and protection against UV radiation. heroal zip screen solar protection fabric is made from a durable high-quality material. The fabric is breathable and resistant to water, rot, mould, dirt, UV radiation and severe weather. The manufacturer's warranty lasts 5 years.

  • Sergé fabrics

    Sergé – clear view and wide range of design options

    This fabric consists of woven and coated glass fibres. It ensures a warm atmosphere and a clear view to the outside.

    Sergé zip screen fabric is made of coated glass fibre yarn. The thread has a fibreglass core and is given an additional PVC coating. This process produces particularly supple fabrics. Take a look at some of the many available colours and designs.

  • Soltis fabrics

    Soltis – for very high shape retention

    This fabric is based on a coated and prestressed polyester fabric and is also referred to as a polyester cloth.

    The sunscreen is made of polyester yarn (HTP) with a high tensile strength. After the weaving process, the zip screen fabric is pulled in both directions under high stress and fixed with liquid PVC. Through this process, the zip screen fabric is given a very high degree of shape retention that prevents almost all deformation, even under heavy loads. The combination of high fabric tension and low sag makes it suitable for screening large areas. Take a look at a selection of over 100 colours and designs for Soltis fabric.

In addition, this fabric is also available with a flame-retardant FR coating for the special equipment of commercial buildings. Please find a selection of the sun protection fabrics here.
