With the SecuKit for external venetian blinds, blinds can be quickly raised or lowered, independent of the power supply. This allows you to get outside safely in the event of a fire or power failure.

SenSigna detects unusual movements of the external venetian blind, e.g. in an attempted break-in, and immediately emits an acoustic signal. The alarm sounds before the window is damaged with a signal strength of approx. 90 decibels. SenSigna is integrated unobtrusively into the external venetian blind end rail. Simple retrofitting is possible.

With the integrated fall protection VisioNeo for external venetian blinds, you can secure floor-to-ceiling windows in a particularly stylish way.

External venetian blinds can also help regulate the indoor climate, improve the level of comfort in your own home and reduce energy costs. By reducing the amount of sunrays and heat that enter the room, external venetian blinds are capable of reducing room temperatures, making the indoor climate more comfortable. In addition, you also can even adjust air circulation in a room when the window is opened by opening and closing the slats.

External venetian blinds can help improve your burglary protection. Thanks to their position outside the window, they act as an additional obstacle for potential burglars attempting to open or break in through the window. In addition, external venetian blinds offer a certain degree of privacy by preventing burglars from looking into your room and finding potential items of value or other interesting objects. However, an external venetian blinds alone don't provide full burglary protection. It's important to take other action, like installing an alarm system, to improve the security of your house or apartment. We also recommend retrofitting the early warning system SenSigna von WAREMA.

WAREMA external venetian blinds fulfil all requirements in terms of energy efficiency and modern design. Customised slat geometries provide the right solution for achieving your desired sun shading effect. Enjoy daylight and your privacy in equal measure. With WAREMA external venetian blinds, you can create an always-comfortable atmosphere in your home.

Venetian blinds were developed in Italy, and their Italian name "gelosia" means "jealousy". Originally, this term described window grilles that allowed a view out, but prevented a view in. In Venetian palaces or harems, for example, it was custom to install an appropriate privacy screen to avert the gaze of prying eyes.

Over time, the term "venetian blinds" came to be used for other types of window and door dressings consisting of horizontal or vertical slats. Nowadays, the term "venetian blinds" commonly refers to internal and external sun shading systems with movable slats – such as the WAREMA external venetian blinds.

This is because the slats direct the radiation into the interior during the day, meaning that the heat of the sun enters your home. In the evening, when the external sun shading is closed, this increases the insulation performance of the windows so that heat does not escape and the maximum amount of natural heat is stored. The result: an effective reduction in energy used for heating and of course in the related costs.

Our reporter Toni has set out to answer this question. To do so, he met with our colleague Stefan from Development to find out more about the top quality of our external venetian blinds. Toni gained an intriguing insight into which conditions our products have to withstand and whether the external venetian blinds still work in sub-zero temperatures.

With the help of automatic slat tracking, which analyses the current light conditions and ensures the optimum slat position, the natural light is fully utilised during the day, even when there are only few sunny hours. With an additional dose of sunlight, the body can release the mood-lifting happiness hormone serotonin, even in the cold months. This also saves electricity for artificial light. With high-grade external venetian blinds, the energy consumption for artificial lighting can be reduced by 30 to 50 percent.
