Summer is the favourite time of year for many of us. If only it weren’t the high season for mosquitoes as well. Thanks to the practical insect protection solutions from Schenker Storen, you can enjoy every season to the fullest.
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.
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.
The sliding shutter with fixed slats has at least one slat frame that does not move. 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 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.
The elegant sliding shutter CADROTEX with textile cover offers a further option for the facade design and not only enhances the feeling of comfort indoors but also ensure the heating is efficiently regulated within the building. The transparent CADROTEX fabric is weather-resistant and easy to look after. It allows sufficient natural light in while keeping prying eyes out.
The sandwich construction of the insulating model made from highly insulating reinforced polystyrene foam and two aluminium panels, ensures the best insulating properties. Whether as a closed sliding shutter in a simple design or the special specially shaped version with a slat look, the heat-insulating model ensures thermal comfort at any time of year or day.
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)
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.
3. Insect screen
The practical retractable insect screen provides effective protection against the entry of unwanted insects and midges into the living quarters when the windows are open. The insect screen is easy to open and close. It fits into almost all of Schenker Storen’s sliding shutters and can also be installed at a later date.
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.
