MONUMENT PROTECTION ROLLER BLIND
External sun protection in monument protection
Bringing suitable external sun protection in monument protection into harmony with the ideas of the authority, the building owner and the planner is often very difficult. Historical buildings change their use in a contemporary way. And yet they are subject to building law requirements according to EnEV. Each one should therefore be viewed as unique. There is no blanket solution for listed buildings, such as: E.g. lofts, churches, universities, district courts, hotels or city villas. Historical-looking buildings are always a new but also beautiful challenge for us. We are a sun protection manufacturer with our own factory fitters specializing in listed buildings.
Which external sun protection is the best on listed facades?
Sun protection in monument protection is more solvable than often assumed. But which product suits the products to be shaded and which one attracts the goodwill of everyone involved? The main challenge here lies in finding a solution. The final choice of curtains is relatively straightforward. Materials with a linen-like look, aluminum or wood are most commonly used here. are back in fashion. In contrast to the externally mounted wooden blinds, they can be infinitely adjusted and the incidence of light can be harmoniously regulated. The sophisticated SOLARMATIC “Retro Look” operating mechanism allows more or less sunlight to enter the room in no time. The wooden blind is an extremely durable and easy-care sun protection system. The slats simply need to be wiped with a damp cloth. However, if very dark wooden slats fade after a long time and intense sunlight, we recommend the following. The individual slats can be lightly sanded and painted with a suitable wood stain. Straps and bands are UV-resistant. External blinds made of wood, which are also sometimes known under the term, wooden venetian blinds, wooden external blinds, wooden roller blinds, wooden roller shutters or as external blinds for wood, are available as rotatable or unrollable as with solarmatic - especially for wooden houses or.
Why is external sun protection better for monument protection?
Historical monuments and renovation projects, such as E.g. granaries, churches, castles, villas, orangeries, universities, district courts and lofts now have completely different uses than before.
Therefore, the improvement of the energy balance, glare-free work at screen spaces in accordance with the EU directive, the workplace directive, etc. are also fully effective here.
Especially with these listed buildings, a delicate and very inconspicuous exterior is of great importance. External roller blinds based on “old models” with innovative technology are desired for a sophisticated property. Here, the manufacturer SOLARMATIC®, which specializes in monument protection solutions for windows, has not only years of experience, but has also developed affordable products specifically for the respective historical, listed facade. Sun protection solutions for non-standard windows, such as triangles, oval or arched windows or trapezoids, are therefore no problem. Historical factory buildings with segmented arched windows are often provided with the delicate counter-pull awnings from bottom to top.
Monument conservators, government employees, architects or private investors want to preserve the charm of monuments worth preserving and are therefore faced with the difficult task of equipping period facades with sun protection.
SOLARMATIC® has solutions here with historical building materials, or rather inconspicuous, efficient and, above all, affordable solutions.
Whether sun protection, heat protection, glare protection or privacy protection for historical facade elements, also for your world cultural heritage – you have come to the right place. Because SOLARMATICs® ThermoScreens are a stylish element in the modern use of listed buildings.
The SOLARMATIC® Thermotop fabrics are available in different versions (ÖF 3% to ÖF 20%).
The advantage is e.g. B. on a square building, depending on the direction of the compass, the opening factor can be adapted to the room lighting conditions and at the same time ensure a uniform facade appearance.
There are also internal SOLARMATIC® fabrics with different light transmission values, Fc values and degrees of darkening. Depending on individual requirements, the monuments can be equipped with transparent to darkening Thermotop fabrics.
Which monument protection roller blind is best?
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a monument protection roller blind for every facade. This means that the problem that often seems difficult to solve: sun protection, heat protection, heat protection, glare protection, privacy protection or even fly screens on historical building elements, windows or glass roofs or skylight domes with ceiling blinds is no longer a problem. “The” roller shutter, “the” awning or “the” roller blind for an arched window are not defined in the Monument Protection Act. They must always be viewed individually and at the discretion of the monument authority. Although we also have them in our program, we do not recommend them everywhere. Only in some areas where there are no alternatives. Firstly, sun protection films do not match the historical facade at all and secondly, they absorb a huge amount of natural daylight. Approximately 50% of the light, depending on the type of sun protection film, is not transmitted. Therefore, the improvement of the energy balance, glare-free work at screen spaces in accordance with the EU directive, the highest room temperature of 26 degrees in accordance with the workplace directive, etc. are also fully effective here. Our group of companies has been offering national and international detailed solutions in monument protection and sun protection for 30 years.
Our engineering staff specializes in individual special solutions for privacy and sun protection. Our motivation is to provide summer or winter thermal protection for listed facades that is contemporary and functional. The external roller blind system developed by Solarmatic and proven over many years (see slideshow above) is equipped with plastic-coated, highly tear-resistant and inconspicuous stainless steel cables. Wooden decorative fabrics and numerous awning fabrics, including flame-retardant fabrics, are available as fabrics for inside or outside. Customized solutions are SOLARMATIC’s strength.
HOW DOES EXTERNAL SUN PROTECTION WORK IN MONUMENT PROTECTION?
The decisive factor for external sun protection in monument protection is the Fc value and the accepted optical effect. Where nothing works anymore, internal magnetic frames with anti-glare fabric must fulfill the purpose. We recommend the textile screens from SOLARMATIC®. They have different levels of transparency, are highly reflective and offer good visual comfort. The PVC-free and sustainable one is best.
Who has a delicate roller blind for monuments?
We can cleverly and yet efficiently integrate a roller blind into monument protection as summer heat protection with the lowest FC value. And that has been the case for 30 years. A wide variety of architectural styles such as Baroque, Classicism, Renaissance or Art Nouveau are a meaningful testimony to history. They are, so to speak, our structural, cultural heritage and to this day give our cities their typical image, their character, their charm and in this way make an important contribution to ensuring that we feel comfortable and at home in our cities. At the same time, the preservation or modernization of existing buildings, whether they are listed or not, naturally also makes sense from an economic perspective and for reasons of structural environmental protection.
It is often not easy to faithfully recreate the style and architectural features of bygone times. Especially those that have always played a crucial role in overall architecture across a wide variety of architectural styles and eras by structuring, dividing, accentuating or decorating facades.
In addition, there are the requirements of the Energy Saving Ordinance on the one hand and the statutory monument protection requirements for the preservation of historical buildings on the other. These often represent major challenges for builders and monument conservators. The SOLARMATIC® sun protection group offers a wide range of design options for the renovation and restoration of historical windows and doors. Due to the new functionality of the building envelopes, there is a combination of visual, glare, heat, sound and sun protection. For example, from outside B. facade awnings, used as vertical awnings in an asymmetrical shape. These are often also referred to as triangular blinds, arched blinds, round blinds, etc. The exotic wooden external blinds are also very popular in listed buildings, which some also know as external blinds with wooden slats or wooden external blinds. Here, too, SOLARMATIC® has been familiar with the refurbishment of existing systems for years.
From the inside, the preservationist loves curved vertical blinds or foil blinds directly on the glass pane. Roller blinds for large windows are also very popular.
These special monument protection roller blinds are intended to make it possible to recreate period arches as well as basket or arched windows. When it comes to modern thermal insulation and air circulation, reflection-coated THERMO fabrics are the solution for inside and outside.
During the planning phase, people often think about integrating the roller blind into existing roofs, skylight domes or glass roofs or light strips. Here SOLARMATIC® has developed special skylight systems or horizontal awnings with inconspicuous stainless steel cables as counter-tension systems for monuments.
The curtains with thermal screens can be produced as a roller blind counter-pull system up to a length of 36 m and enable translucency to the outside while working at the computer workstation without glare.
Sun protection solutions according to historical specifications and today's functional requirements can be a real challenge for the specialist planner. SOLARMATIC® has products for this that are energy-saving and very efficient in monument protection. Whether the building structure is that of a baroque building or that of a museum with a modern extension as a glass facade, there are external sun protection roller blinds with daylight technology up to the degree of blackout. The SOLARMATIC® monument protection roller blinds can move from bottom to top with wire rope guides into the arch. The focus of the implementation of the new energy saving regulations is on climate conditioning and a clear view of the outside while making full use of daylight.
The textile screens can be built up to 100 m²/system. As a darkening system or blackout device, the professional ZIP systems are in daily production by the roller shutter and sun protection technicians from SOLARMATIC®.
Due to the higher light transmission of the DAYLIGHT ROLLER BLINDS, more light reaches the depths of the room in the upper window area and thus enables even, optimal light distribution with sufficient shading or glare protection in monument protection. It is therefore possible to install a roller blind for the monument and make the lower monument protection authority happy.
Bus-compatible control drives or RWA control drives are no problem and ensure fire protection safety with fabrics according to DIN 4102 B1 (flame-retardant) or according to DIN 4102 A2 (non-flammable). This is particularly important for historical valuables such as: B. Paintings that also need to be protected from UV radiation with a monument protection roller blind. Here they provide ideal privacy protection, glare protection, heat protection and sun protection for inside or outside. It is also possible to integrate a fire alarm system (BMZ) or smoke and heat exhaust system (RWA). This protects sensitive exhibits. We can make our integrated privacy systems or total blackout systems disappear “invisibly” indoors in the ceiling, wall, window sill base or floor. SOLARMATIC® monument protection roller blinds always reflect the historical role model. Combined acoustic sails or soundproof roller blinds for listed rooms from SOLARMATIC® are also fascinating. These THERMO FABRIC (please inquire) improve the reverberation in the room, save energy and enable glare-free work on the PC even in monument protection areas.
Counter-pull systems (counter-rotating roller blind shaft systems) are available in every direction up to 36 m long. These anti-glare fabrics are available with aluminium-coated, silver-coated or other highly reflective designs that do not affect the appearance of the facade.
Due to the conversion of historical buildings as training and educational institutions, universities, clinics, offices, etc., BLACKOUT fabrics or blackout fabrics from SOLARMATIC® are also in demand for blackout systems, for example. B. to be able to carry out training courses with overhead projectors.
WHICH ROLLER BLIND IS ACCEPTED IN HISTORICAL PROTECTION?
From a user perspective, architectural monuments not only require more modern windows that come close to the original, but also contemporary privacy protection, sun protection and heat protection. Even listed houses provide a clear view with ideal sun protection solutions. As beautiful and representative as historic old buildings are, their high energy consumption is a disadvantage: weak points are often the single-glazed windows from past centuries, which cannot be replaced without approval. In Germany alone there are around a million listed buildings, two thirds of which are used as housing, according to an estimate by the “German Foundation for Monument Protection”. Residents of historic buildings do not have to be alarmed by the ever-increasing costs for heating and heating up the rooms. The company has been offering innovative solutions for all types of arched windows for 30 years that can combine pleasant living and monument protection.
Another component of the house fulfills a variety of functions like this: it brings light and air into the house, ensures security, protects against weather and noise, regulates the indoor climate and saves energy. At the same time, no other component characterizes the overall visual impression of a building so much. It is said, not without reason, that windows are the eyes of the house, and the architect Le Corbusier remarked: The history of architecture is the history of the window. It is therefore clear that the design of new windows and the associated sun protection must be given particular importance, especially when renovating historical buildings.
Please coordinate this with your regional monument authority; in most cases a permit is required. The aim of monument protection should always be to adapt it as closely as possible to the original. If this is not possible, the structure and profile of the windows must correspond to the historical model, explains the spokeswoman for the German Foundation for Monument Protection, Ursula Schirmer. This means that the type of construction, choice of materials, profiling, surface treatment and assembly must take into account the character of the building worthy of protection. The architectural style of the house should not be distorted and the appearance of the old windows should meet all contemporary requirements for heat, sound and burglary protection. Monument protection should specify the design of the desired building elements as clearly as possible so that privacy protection, glare protection, sound insulation and heat protection, or cold protection and darkening can be integrated unobtrusively.
Technical possibilities to replace historical windows are available; This means that modern insulating glass windows can be designed without weatherboards, which look like a single-glazed window with profile strips and outer frames, but have better thermal insulation properties, or composite windows that consist of two sashes and can be opened and closed like a single window. The very narrow profiles of these windows, in keeping with their craftsmanship, generally meet the requirements of monument protection; blinds can be integrated into the window assembly. The exact replica of the historical single window is very complex, using particularly thin insulating glass. Feasible window shapes, profile geometries, opening types, as well as muntins and decorative parts leave nothing to be desired when it comes to individual window design, including when it comes to sun protection with a clear view of the outside and still a high level of daylight. Materials, on the other hand, only play a minor role in the overall impression of the listed building. While wooden windows used to be the norm, high-quality wooden external blinds, wooden folding shutters, screen roller blinds with a wooden look or custom-made products with flame-retardant curtains are now the norm. SOLARMATIC® has also been providing asymmetrical solutions as triangular shading, slanted shading or sun protection for round or oval windows at economically reasonable prices for several decades. Regardless of whether it is a rectangular frame, round arches or a geometrically complex monument protection roller blind.
By the way: Renovations that are necessary for the sensible use and preservation of listed buildings can be deducted from taxes. This may also include expenses for windows, as they are part of the so-called maintenance costs of the property worthy of protection. However, the prerequisite is that the monument authority includes these expenses in the certificate required for tax deduction.
LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SUN PROTECTION IN MONUMENT PROTECTION
- Historical facades under monument protection sun protection
- Summer thermal protection in monument protection
- Legal regulations, not only for privacy protection, glare protection, heat protection and sun protection for listed facades, are anchored in the law on the protection and care of monuments. These are e.g. in the state of Brandenburg it is referred to as (Brandenburg Monument Protection Act − BbgDSchG). Among other things, the DSchg regulates:
General regulations for historical summer thermal protection
- § 1 Principles
- § 2 Definitions
- § 3 List of monuments
- § 4 Monument areas
- § 5 Excavation protection areas
- § 6 Monument preservation plans
- Segment arch – sun protection in monument protection
- Protection regulations of the lower monument protection authority
- § 7 Obligation to maintain
- § 8 Measures by the monument protection authorities
- § 9 Measures subject to authorization
- § 10 Investigations
- § 11 Finds
- § 12 Treasure shelf
- § 13 Obligation to report
- § 14 Obligation to provide information and right of entry
- § 15 Marking of monuments
- Organization of listed segment arch windows EnEv4018
- § 16 Monument protection authorities

- § 19 Permission procedure
- § 20 Projects requiring approval under building regulations
- § 21 Monuments that serve the practice of religion
- § 22 Fees and certificates for tax purposes
- Transitional provisions

- In the other federal states, such as Schleswig Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland Palatinate, Baden-Würtemberg, Bavaria, Thuringia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Berlin, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Hesse, there are of course also state-specific monument protection laws.
Roller blinds as SUN PROTECTION and VISION PROTECTION in monument protection
Monuments are evidence of human history and formative components of the cultural landscape of the federal state and protect, preserve and care for the historical buildings and facades of villas, universities, educational buildings, schools and hospitals. Authorities and public bodies must support the goals of monument protection and preservation and provide privacy/sun protection in order to comply with the workplace guidelines. You must inform and consult the authorities responsible for monument protection and preservation during the preparation of all public planning and measures that may affect the interests of monument protection and preservation, as long as the historical facade is not negatively affected and, for example. Functional fabrics, such as textile screens from SOLARMATIC®, do not influence the appearance of the stucco facade on a church, museum, villa and the arched windows or arched windows too much. The wall, window or glass roof construction to be protected from the sun must be coordinated with the authorities responsible for monument protection and monument preservation. Visible areas such as treatment rooms in hospitals can be viewed ideally from the inside. Equipped with roller blinds, blinds, slats, vertical blinds, panel curtains and medically sensitive fabrics. This is not affected.
Roller blind as sound insulation in monument protection on the window
The modern interior design and the new functionality of the historic building and its rooms also require new building materials to improve the room acoustics. The SOLARMATIC® Group is an experienced specialist in interior glazing and windows. Whether horizontally on the ceiling as a glass roof roller blind, sun sail, horizontal awning or vertically on the window as a large roller blind for training rooms, auditoriums, lecture halls, conference rooms, the sound insulation solutions for window decorations are diverse. SOLARMATIC® achieves absorption of up to 85% with its sound insulation program for windows. These sound absorbers in the form of roller blinds, panel curtains, sliding curtains or vertical blinds are tested according to Din and are economically justifiable and affordable. They are used daily, especially in open-plan offices and call centers, even in listed buildings. Depending on the mesh size, the partially translucent fabrics can also be an ideal privacy screen, glare protection or combined sun protection for monument protection.
Architectural monuments should first have the extent of sound insulation checked by an acoustics office and specify the level of sound absorption. Our highest or lowest alpha value is 0.15 to 0.85. Tested fabrics with approx. 60% sound absorption are common. If you coordinate with the monument authority or monument protection authority about improving the room acoustics, monument preservation plans for the preservation and use of the monuments are useful. Monument preservation principles will have priority when it comes to sound insulation and acoustics.
Summer thermal protection for listed buildings
To the extent that summer protection is subject to the applicable legal provisions and movable and immovable property, in particular remains or traces of objects, buildings and other evidence, are present, the historical sun protection should be restarted or rebuilt if possible. This is often found in wooden external blinds or also called external blinds made of wood. Things look different with functional fabrics. In the past, linen cloths were used that hung like “floppy awnings”. Today's innovative reflective fabrics, such as textile screens, Soltis 86, 92 Lowe, sunworker metal, copaco screens, Vertisol screens, Siverscreens from Verosol, Verotex screens, are much better.
What is crucial about the monument, however, is its preservation, appearance or urban significance (environmental protection).
In the regional list of monuments, monuments are listed publicly in a directory. If such a building falls within your area of responsibility as a builder, building planner or architect, then you must first contact the monument protection agency with your summer shading solution or planned shading system. The entry of movable monuments and movable archaeological monuments of public museums and collections in the inventories replaces the entry in the list of monuments. By exchanging experiences from other projects, the heritage authority usually has solutions to prevent the rooms in listed buildings from heating up.
WHO HAS EXTERNAL SUN PROTECTION IN A MONUMENT PROTECTION WITHOUT DRILLING THE WINDOWS?
Monuments must be used in such a way that their long-term preservation is guaranteed, even with a sun protection system. The nature of the monument may also require a weather protection roller blind or weather protection in the case of a ruin as a roof where no drilling into supporting structures is permitted. Intervention, within reason, without drilling into the monument must be agreed upon in advance. The specialist Solarmatic has developed professional solutions without drilling into the historic facade or windows based on its decades of experience in sun protection and weather protection in monument protection.
The monument status is not affected. The nature of the monument remains unaffected because we also develop Klemmfix solutions for steel structures with high wind loads on a project-specific basis. Necessary conservation measures on the historic building also include weather protection and sun protection. The state contributes to the preservation and care of the monuments, particularly with budgetary resources. The monument protection authority must, at its best discretion, take the measures necessary to protect the monuments for summer heat protection when building existing buildings. Any threat to the monument caused by drilling into the windows can be averted with SOLARMATICS solutions for UV protection, privacy protection, glare protection, darkening and sun protection. Ask us about roller blinds without drilling for your monument, such as: Pleated blinds, folding blinds, blinds, awnings, panel curtains, sliding curtain mechanisms without drilling into the windows or walls/ceilings.
ROLLER BLIND AS GLARE PROTECTION AND PC WORKPLACE IN MONUMENT PROTECTION
At the time of their creation, monuments did not have any computer workstations and therefore did not require any glare protection at the computer workstation. Today, these historical buildings often have a different function and even a museum, a hospital, a university, a castle or a hotel need at least one computer today. Monument protection and monument preservation take into account the needs of modern computer workstations. However, the focus is on preserving such a public building because of its historical, scientific, technical, artistic, urban planning or ethnographic significance.
Structural systems (architectural monuments), technical systems (technical monuments) or parts of such systems are equipped with modern anti-glare devices, e.g. solved by the specialist for anti-glare solutions, the SOLARMATIC® Group, with the following products: as external roller blinds with summer heat protection, textile screens with transparency to the outside, which can also be moved from bottom to top into arched windows or arched windows. This round shading is an invention of the engineering staff at solarmatic, who allow 2 external roller blinds to move in opposite directions with a counter-pull system on a round arched window in the Kempfer profile. There are also wooden external blinds as wooden venetian blinds or wooden roller shutters with a fold-out frame mechanism. TEXTILE SCREEN ROLLER BLINDS with a reflective coating on the back, panel curtains with textile screens and daylight technology, vertical blind slats with textile screens and magnetic frames with textile screen-like curtains are particularly in demand as internal glare protection in monument areas. In the history of urban development, archives, galleries, museums, universities, schools, doctors' houses, private villas, the architectural monuments with their computers have a new function today and require individual solutions for privacy protection, glare protection and sun protection in the monument.
Darkening with a monument protection roller blind
The monument protection authority always has the protection of the monument in mind when necessary measures to darken or darken seminar rooms, lecture halls, auditoriums, ultrasound examination rooms or radiation-exposed X-ray rooms or medical operating areas are to be carried out.
If the condition of a monument requires measures for a blackout system, blackout roller blinds or even a total darkening system, the monument protection authority can approve this measure independently and without any problems. The historic restoration of blackout roller blinds or blinds must be ensured. The repair work on blackout systems that already exist as darkening systems is possible without any problems given the current state of the art. There are blackout textile screens that have a thin winding diameter and have high surface stability and UV resistance. According to the principles of monument preservation, a roller blind, a wooden blind, a glass roof sail or a fabric panel is installed in the frame. As experts in sun protection, glare protection, sound insulation and darkening in monument protection, we would be happy to show you solutions on how to get a room really dark, maintain an unimpaired view of the facade and in some cases you don't even have to drill into the windows or historical facade.
Shading the facade with a monument protection roller blind
The highest monument protection authority appoints a voluntary advisory board for monument preservation, which is to be consulted on fundamental decisions that affect monument protection and preservation, including sun protection systems on historical facades in training and educational buildings, hospitals, museums, churches and galleries. His recommendations should be understood as suggestions, not instructions. Only some experts for privacy protection systems, glare protection systems, noise protection systems, sun protection systems and blackout systems have qualified knowledge of monument preservation and protection.
