Exterior Roller Shades
Altex is a leader in automated exterior sun control devices and offers one of the most comprehensive exterior shading solutions available. Ranging from external roller shades to external louver devices, we provide energy-efficient systems that when enabled by sensors automatically react to the sun’s movement and adjust their position. The reduction of solar heat gain and energy consumption is significant. The return on investment when switching to automatic shading systems can save between 20 to 40 percent of energy used for just one to two percent of the total building cost. Moreover, the system maximizes daylight and thus increases the inhabitants’ comfort and, in a commercial setting, productivity. It is proven that thermal and visual comfort has a beneficial effect on the occupants’ well-being. Working or living in a pleasant, healthy environment is no longer perceived as a luxury, it’s good business.
This elegant and automated exterior roller shading system is well suited to reduce heat gain, lower energy costs, provide glare control and optimize daylighting. A variety of attachment options allow the shades to be mounted on any building structure. The FM41 can be installed in any commercial or residential dwelling including balconies on high-rise condominiums.
The fabric is durable, exterior-rated and specially designed to resist the impact of adverse weather conditions. The FM 41 system significantly enhances the comfort and well being of a building’s occupant by taking advantage of natural air ventilation, reducing heat and glare. The system significantly reduces air conditioning energy consumption.

Similar to our other exterior solar shades FM 41 or Makroll, the Tekno XTR provides a high level of sun control. The distinguishing difference between the Tekno XTR and our other exterior shading systems is that this system can be provided with exposed roller using or HP Bracket System or with 125 cassette option. This system is preferably used with T3 Solar Tracks at the sides versus a cable system. The use of this system versus the FM 41 or Makroll, solely depends on application and possible preference of choice. As the exterior shade specialist we provide a variety of cost- efficient solutions for a broad range of applications. Just like all of our other shading systems our hardware and design always communicates an unmistakable message of quality, engineered performance, and value.
