When the furniture is in place and the sun is high, those first rays of sunlight are often a source of joy, it’s really important to be able to protect yourself from the middle of summer, what could be nicer than relaxing outside a café or in your garden, sheltered from the sun (or rain), without being bothered by the heat?


There are lots of different solutions for sun protection, and they all have their benefits, from canopies and pegolas to blinds and furniture covers.  Here are a few:



The new Précontraint 502 Satin range – a full membrane, without micro-perforations, sophisticated and less traditional look, better suited to modern trends. A wide range of different colours to encourage creativity, effective protection against heat and bad weather and impressive sturdiness, improved dirt resistance, making it a fantastic choice for architecture, with a 10-year extended warranty.

Perfect for your canopies and pergola roofs. It has the advantage of being very sturdy (it doesn’t distort or stretch) and durable, as well as being resistant to bad weather and UV rays.



Soltis 88 offers another option for indoor sun protection with greater transparency.

Manufactured using exclusive Précontraint Serge Ferrari® technology, these composite materials are kept taut throughout the production process. The result: they do not distort when put up or used and combine dimensional stability with resistance, as well as being incredibly thin, lightweight and effective, with a touch of transparency.



The Soltis 86 is the most open screen in the Soltis range. Its micro-perforated structure lets light through and helps to create a bright, flattering, pleasant and appropriate atmosphere. Incredibly resistant to bad weather and UV rays, when used outdoors, the Soltis 86 blocks up to 88% of sun rays.



The Soltis 92 offers reinforced thermal protection thanks to its micro-perforations that help to regulate the heat from the sun. It limits the greenhouse effect and is particularly recommended for very exposed areas.

Used outdoors, the Soltis 92 absorbs and reflects up to 97% of the heat, thus reducing the temperature in summer. It’s perfect for blinds (for façades, verandas and glazing) and canopies.



Soltis 96 successfully combats and gets rid of heat thanks to its micro-perforations. It blocks up to 95% of UVA and UVB rays. Relatively transparent, it filters light without blocking it and protects against glare, boasting fantastic visual comfort. Lightweight, durable and 100% recyclable. It is recommended for outdoor blinds for balconies or terraces, awnings, pergolas and small shade structures.

But which is the right sun protection?

As well as the desired look, there are a number of different solutions to choose from depending on whether you are looking for vertical or horizontal protection. In general, outdoor blinds are often better than indoor ones, as they act as a real barrier against the sun.

Basically, inside, light blinds that reflect the heat are better, while outside, darker blinds are preferred as they blend in with the environment.
