Horiso creates internal and external solar control solutions for the commercial, hospitality, institutional and residential sectors.

By integrating intelligent-control of the facade’s louvers and sunshades into the building-management system, microprocessors ensure each shade and louver adjusts individually according to the angle of the sun, ensuring the exact position required to achieve maximum heat and light control.
The building’s geographical location, characteristics and position are overlayed with the architect’s drawings and satellite data, factoring in the sun’s Angle of Incidence, and streamed continuously to each individual blind, sunshade and venetian.
This process then interacts with the air conditioning and lighting systems to achieve the maximum energy efficiency and optimal light around the clock.
Not only is the look and style of the building enhanced, with blinds and shades as a contemporary architectural feature, the comfort and well-being of the occupants is enriched, no matter the climate, with maximum light and reduced all round energy consumption.
Horiso is able to produce systems to meet the building’s aesthetic, performance and environmental requirements with a wide range of solutions including recycled aluminium, various hardwoods such as Western Red Cedar, Iroko and Plantation timbers and climate-ready fabric in customer-specified colours and finishes.
All solar control systems are custom designed and custom made for specific projects.
