Retractable Screens

Let the Light In, Keep the Heat Out

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?

Transparent or Opaque Fabrics - Fresh Air Goes In, 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. From sheer to blackout for complete privacy, you choose your view!

Lower Your Energy Bills with 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.

Rain or Shine, the Retractable Screen Can Withstand it All

heroal sun protection systems can withstand severe weather conditions due to their high-quality coating and materials. Thanks to the innovative zip technology applied to the 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.

Style, Design Types and Variety

Thanks to a wide range of colors and materials, you can design the retractable screen in a way that fits your needs perfectly. Even very large openings can be fitted by the screen, which can cover an area up to 160ft². In its retracted form, the screen is hardly noticeable, as it can be integrated perfectly with almost any design and color . The solar screen can also be installed as a retro-fit version while renovating a home. The narrow winding diameter makes it possible for us to provide the smallest boxes on the market - even with very large screens.

The following boxes are available:

FME 45°

FME 45° - clearly beveled box for optimum angle of incidence, reduces the impairment of the exterior finish, discreet fit.

FME 90°

FME 90° - classic pre-construction design, suitable for straight-lined structures.


HC (hemicycle aperture) - optimal light incidence - similar to 45°, design, rainwater drains effectively from the cover of the bevel.

In order to find the right solution for any home, customers can select the color of the system components from the range of RAL colors, in addition to the box shape. Thanks to our in-house coating, the surface of the sun protection box remains colorfast for decades and provides the highest protection against corrosion.

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.

Function of the Zip Screen Fabrics

  • Protection against solar radiation and aggressive UV radiation (discolouration of furniture)
  • Zip screens not only protect against heat and sunlight during the day, but also against the evening chills
  • Energy savings
  • prevention of light reflections on computer and/or television screens due to direct sunlight
  • partial or complete darkening
  • decorative element

Thanks to a large selection of colours and fabric types, you can design the textile screens of the heroal VS Z to fit your exact needs. We offer fabrics that range from translucent to opaque as well as a broad selection of colours. Choose from over 100 colors and designs per fabric type.

Sergé Zip Screen Fabric

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 Zip Screen Fabric

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.

If you choose to install your heroal VS Z in a shutter box, you can also select the appropriate colour for the box from the full RAL colour palette. Thanks to our proprietary coating, the surface of the shutter box remains colourfast for decades and offers maximum protection against corrosion.

Comfort - Effortless Operation

When you want to enjoy the sun, heroal’s retractable screens are no obstacle. Our patio screens easily disappear from view, ensuring the aesthetic of your home is not disturbed. When retracted, the screens are stored tidily and unobtrusively in a small shutter box. There are also various control options, including remotes, switches, and sensors, allowing you to enjoy the sun just as much – or as little – as you want.

Application Examples

Retractable screens are the perfect fit for windows, doors as well as porches, patios and garages. This way, any outside area can be turned into a comfortable and usable room. Since all of our solar screens are custom made, they fit nearly any opening, and match your indoor and outdoor living spaces to create a unique atmosphere.
