Green External Screens

Overview

External window covering PVC coated polyester fabrics and motorised roller blind system. Suitable for residential and commercial applications.


 

Product Description

Helio 86 and 93 are external window covering fabrics made from PVC coated polyester. A number of fabrics in the range have a metallic coating which has additional reflective qualities.

Being external, they more effectively reduce heat gain into buildings than internal blinds while also effectively reducing internal glare and still allowing vision to the outside. They are also significantly lower in embodied energy than metal-based louvre or blade sunshade systems.

Significant reductions in the demand for air conditioning can be achieved, improving building comfort and reducing associated electricity consumption, HVAC, plant size and greenhouse gas emissions.

Fabrics are designed for high durability, stated as wind, weather and fire resistance. Fabrics regulate natural light, whilst minimising UV transmission and glare.

This system allows manual and automatic operation. The fully automated system can handle self adjustment to specific climatic factors including temperature, wind, cloud cover, and can be isolated into 8 different zones for control purposes. The system can be linked with an overall building management system (BMS).

Green Star™ Pre-Assessment of Helio 86 and 93 External Fabrics & Roller Blind System

Under Green Star™ (Office Interiors and Office Design)- IEQ Daylight Glare Control, this credit criteria specifies that fabrics used in blinds and screens must have a visual light transmittance (VLT) of less than 10%. Please note, only specific Helio 93 fabrics, highlighted in bold font in the above tables, will meet this Green Star™ criteria.

Green Star™ Office Interiors v1.1 Compatibility

IEQ-4 DAYLIGHT GLARE CONTROL

If 100% of exterior blinds or screens installed are Helio 86 and 93 External Fabrics & Roller Blind System, and connected to a BMS with manual override, use of these fabrics may contribute towards the possible achievement of 1 credit point.

NOTE – Fabric must have a visual light transmittance of less than 10%.

GREEN STAR™ OFFICE DESIGN V2 COMPATIBILITY

IEQ-5 DAYLIGHT GLARE CONTROL

If 100% of exterior blinds or screens installed are Helio 86 and 93 External Fabrics & Roller Blind System, and connected to a BMS with manual override, use of these fabrics may contribute towards the possible achievement of 1 credit point.

NOTE- Fabric must have a visual light transmittance of less than 10%.


 

ENE-1 ENERGY EFFICIENCY (CONDITIONAL REQUIREMENT)

If Helio 86 and 93 External Fabrics & Roller Blind System are installed in the base building, use of these fabrics should contribute towards reduced energy consumption of the building if included in the building energy load modelling process.

ENE – 2 ENERGY IMPROVEMENTS

If Helio 86 and 93 External Fabrics & Roller Blind System are installed in the base building, use of these fabrics will contribute towards improved overall energy efficiency of the building. This increased efficiency should be reflected in the energy load modelling process. (Maximum of 15 credit points can be achieved by improving energy efficiency in buildings).
