Altex is a leader in automated exterior sun control devices and offers one of the most comprehensive exterior shading solutions available. Ranging from external roller shades to external louver devices, we provide energy-efficient systems that when enabled by sensors automatically react to the sun’s movement and adjust their position. The reduction of solar heat gain and energy consumption is significant.
The return on investment when switching to automatic shading systems can save between 20 to 40 percent of energy used for just one to two percent of the total building cost. Moreover, the system maximizes daylight and thus increases the inhabitants’ comfort and, in a commercial setting, productivity. It is proven that thermal and visual comfort has a beneficial effect on the occupants’ well-being. Working or living in a pleasant, healthy environment is no longer perceived as a luxury, it’s good business.
