Shading For Summer
Honeycomb fabric is twin-layered, providing insulation against harsh seasonal elements by creating air pockets both between the glass and the blind, and within the blind itself. Honeycomb blinds function to help keep your home cooler during the summer months and reduce heat loss during winter.
A window with normal glazing (double glazing as per DIN 4108 / EN 13363-1, U = 1.6) lets about 72% of the solar heat into the room. The Cosiflor® honeycomb blind reduces heat penetration considerably by decreasing the solar radiation entering the room.
Conversely, the blind also prevents thermal loss through the windows in winter. Cosiflor® honeycomb blinds can save up to 12% on heating energy by slowing the loss of heat through your windows and also have high sound absorbing qualities which provide acoustic softening even when the rest of a room is defined by hard surfaces.
Discover the advantages of decorative sunblinds for yourself. Cosiflor® Honeycomb Blinds have lots to offer – not only in terms of looks, but in terms of function too:
- Outstanding cold or heat buffer
- Minimum light incidence
- Optical perfection
- Modern design
- Low Fc-value (energy-saving effect)
Cosiflor® Honeycomb Blinds have an insulating function at the window, which has a positive effect on the room climate regardless of season and outside temperature. This effect is achieved through the honeycomb structure with its air pockets, which works as a cold or heat buffer.
In the high-quality Cosiflor® Honeycomb Blinds, the punch holes are inside the honeycomb thus making the cords invisible. This minimises light incidence. Blackout fabrics in particular benefit from this.
Cosiflor® Honeycomb Blinds achieve optical perfection through their asymmetrical honeycomb shape as well. This prevents the pleats sagging on the front side – a small detail which has a major effect.
In summer, the closed honeycomb blind keeps the
hot sun radiation out of your rooms very well. The air
pockets in the honeycomb structure of the sunblind
act as a kind of insulation layer – keeping your rooms
pleasantly cool at all times.
In the winter, the rooms are heated up during the day by the sun’s rays. In the evening, the Cosiflor® system is closed, thus preventing the room from cooling down too quickly. The warm air is retained in your rooms for longer, thus reducing heating costs.
With standard glass windows (double glazing
according to DIN 4108 / EN 13363-1 U = 1.6),
approx. 72% of the sun’s radiation enters the room.
When Cosiflor® Honeycomb Blinds are put to optimum
use, you can keep rooms cool in the summer and
warm in the winter. This leads to efficient energy
You can use the Fc-value to decide which version will
lead to the best energy savings. This value defines
the factor by which the sun’s energy is reduced when
passing the blind (e.g. Fc-value 0.40 means that only
40% of the sun’s energy can enter the room).
