Sliding shutters

Tradition meets modernity

The aluminium sliding shutter has become a fixed option in modern architecture. It is the ideal solution, particularly for new constructions with large window surfaces. It occupies an expansive area in the facade making them a dominant feature of the overall look while keeping out excessive sunlight and prying eyes.

Our sliding shutter comes in a wide selection of shapes and colours and meets the highest standards when it comes to aesthetics and functionality. This makes it ideal for balconies, pergolas and loggias.

It is comfortable to use, easy to look after and virtually maintenance-free.

Extremely elegant sun and weather protection

The sliding shutter has an extruded aluminium hollow-chamber profile that can be powder-coated in a variety of colours prior to assembly. It is available in a matt or silk gloss finish and a whole variety of fillings. Customers can also choose from fixed slats available in a whole variety of shapes and sizes installed in the frames, or mobile slats, or even completely closed designs. If they would like to customise their sliding shutters even more, they can request a special filling. From expanded metal and real wood slats to fabric fillings, there is a multitude of possibilities for individual requests.

Matching rails and running carriages ensure the sliding shutter opens and closes smoothly. And the locks and stoppers make sure that the sliding shutter is always fixed in place when open or closed. Thanks to our varied collection of shutter fittings, we have the right solution for every kind of building situation.

Movable slats

Movable slats

The sliding shutter with movable slats has at least one slat frame with free-moving slats. Irrespective of this, the other slat frames can be closed with aluminium panels (plain or with grooves running lengthwise or crosswise). Two or more slat frames are separated by a frieze running lengthwise or horizontally. The slats are moved by a visible or concealed control rod.

Closed slats

Closed slats

The closed model only consists of closed fillings that are made of either elements that look like slats or from aluminium panels. The way the surface area is divided up depends on how many slat frames there are. There are also cross and batten or Z bar panels as additional design elements.

Mountings and guides

Mountings and guides

Up to three panels can be moved simultaneously in parallel with the technically and aesthetically different assembly options. The sliding shutter with the preassembled running carriage is mounted in the top guide. The sliding shutter is also guided downwards so it opens and closes quietly and smoothly. Different variants offer the right kind of support depending on the requirements of the building situation:

  • Ceiling mounting or installation on wall without panel
  • Installation on wall with panel
  • Selective guide (lower)
  • Continuous guide (lower)

Unique design options for greater individuality

The sliding shutter does not just play a functional role. In addition to providing sun, glare and sight protection with its numerous design options, it also contributes significantly to creating individual aesthetics. The sliding shutter is a first-class decorative element that can be used in almost any kind of building style and can be produced in accordance with your wishes in terms of its shape, colour and even the filling.




1. Mountings for upper and lower guides

The rails can be installed either directly under the ceiling or on the wall with a support profile. The rails are made from aluminium profiles and the rollers are plastic. This combination of materials realises a quiet operation of the shutters. The shutters can be guided downwards either selectively or continuously.

5. Colours

Endlessly versatile

The sliding shutter is available in a wide range of different colours, such as antique finish and wood decor, as well as matt or silk gloss finishes. The powder-coated surfaces are impact resistant and scratch-resistant, which ensure they remain colourfast for an extremely long time and do not need to be repainted. The special pre-treatment Ocean Line plus is suitable for protecting the product against filiform corrosion in extreme conditions, such as those found by the sea, in swimming pools or in the chemical industry.

Wechselächer: A touch of the Orient

How to best integrate a new building development in a 3900-strong community? By creating a new element, as with this project, but making sure it doesn’t look out of place. There are single-family homes in the area, so the constructions of the four new apartment buildings, housing a total of 27 units, stretch horizontally instead of vertically and form a little hamlet.
