This showroom faces West, so for the majority of the day the full sun was facing the full length windows of the showroom. Not only would the showroom heat up quickly, which meant airconditioners were up on high most of the day, but customers were wearing sunglasses inside due to the strong glare.
To stop the bright light from blinding both staff and customers, they installed Helioscreen motorised internal blinds which immediately fixed the problem. It also meant they kept costs down as the air conditioning could be kept on low for shorter periods of time now that the blinds kept the room cooler. A dark coal colour was chosen to allow maximum visibility and the end result looks fantastic and is easy to manage with a Somfy remote control. Each blind is operated separately as staff choose what suits them best.
