Individual sun shading systems create a wonderful ambience inside and out. Whether you want to block out all the light in your bedroom or make generous use of daylight in your living area, every room has different sun shading requirements. The awning must also harmonise with the building in every respect. In a single family home in Viersen, the professional shading from WAREMA helps create a pleasant room climate. The sun shading specialists recommended products that helped the family to overcome challenges such as a very short construction phase and installation on the exterior insulation and finish system.
The 170 square meter single family home belonging to the Krause family was constructed in 2015 by Grosch Rütters architects in Mönchengladbach. A master bedroom, a dressing room, two children's bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, dining room, utility and kitchen emerged on two floors within a construction period of just six months. The most important thing for the property developers was to have a flexible lighting design with as much natural light as possible. In the living rooms on the south-facing side of the house especially, this meant finding a suitable interplay between daylight, glare control and visual privacy.

The NA-RA model was specially developed for new buildings and renovation projects, where the external venetian blind is to be unobtrusively integrated into the facade. The customised top-mounted external venetian blind for new buildings is fixed to the window itself and inserted into the wall opening together with the window. The box can then be embedded in plaster both outside and inside.
The NA-RO top-mounted roller shutter is used in the master bedroom and the north-facing children's bedrooms. As there is no direct solar radiation, no glare control system is required. Instead, roller shutters will fully dim-out the rooms for sleeping. WAREMA offers the roller shutters and external venetian blinds with identical connections. Thanks to standard positioning, they can be nicely combined on a building. The Krause family uses the Smart Home System to conveniently control the external venetian blinds and roller shutters via smartphone. And thanks to the intelligently controlled sun shading system, the building's energy efficiency is also significantly increased.
