RECTRACTABLE PATIO / DOOR & WINDOW SCREENS / LOUVRES
Exterior sun control acts as a thermal shield blocking up to 97% of the sun’s heat when placed on the exterior of a building’s façade while maximizing outward visibility and interior daylight. Thanks to the inevitable upcoming climate changes, we are predicting a considerable demand increase for exterior sun control systems. Warmer climate is moving north at a rate of ~ 40km a year; within 20 years, Toronto's annual average temperature of 8°C is projected to align with today's North Carolina at 13°C. Undoubtedly, it's the buildings' façades that will bear the brunt of this heat onslaught. We are witnessing the beginning of a new era in exterior shading.
Needless to say, this trend will have a major impact on the lifestyle in the residential market. We are already experiencing an increased demand for Patios and Pergolas, both permanent and temporary. Thanks to state-of-the-art, cutting-edge technology and high performing materials, such as reinforced aluminum, the modern-day pergola structures are engineered and integrated as a complete solution with Integrated Roller Systems, providing insect and/or sun protection. EN3 offers a wide range of choices: from simple roof-retractable ones to complete enclosure automated models, from standard to custom, and from modular to permanent. All Roller systems incorporate wind rated systems and patented Manual or Automated high-level Tensioning System.
