INSULATED GLASS BLIND
In VIEW BLIND® system, the blind (venetian, pleated or Honeycomb) is encapsulated within two or three glass panes, i.e. in an insulating glass unit.
VIEW BLIND® by WINDOW TECHS, develops and manufactures sun shading systems to be integrated within double glazing units, which allow the problem of light and heat gain in buildings to be solved by means of long-lasting and maintenance-free solutions.
The blind is moved in a totally sealed environment, protected from dust, dirt or weather conditions; the characteristics of traditional double glazing units are also preserved, leaving unaltered the hermetic properties of the cavity. All this is made meeting the requirements of the current standards in terms of energy performances of buildings.
Over the years, VIEW BLIND®, has achieved a high number of significant patents, applying them in a wide range of products designed to meet every need related to sun shading: variety of colors, screening degrees, operation and versatility of application.
The movement of the blind, for manual or motorized systems, does not compromise the insulating properties of the insulating glazing unit and is performed in a totally sealed environment.
The exclusive VIEW BLIND® characteristics ensure total protection against dirt, dust or weather conditions, and therefore blinds do not require any maintenance. The magnetic components have an almost indefinite life cycle having a loss of magnetic attraction of around 2% per 100 years. The wide product choice and versatility of operation make VIEW BLIND® blind systems suitable for all types of framing systems.
VIEW Blinds – A Strong Combination
Window Techs double-glazed window with built-in blind is an advanced development of the conventional double-glazed window. It offers the combined benefits of a double glazing and a blind.
The basic properties and the hermetic seal of the double-glazed window are maintained while the airtight and waterproof shaft bushing ensures that the blind is protected against dust, moisture and damage.
The combination of pane and blind makes the blind pane an ideal sunshade that varies from fully open to fully closed by a factor of 10. From 0.8 to 0.08.
The G-value expresses the relative radiance of the solar energy: 1.0 at full radiation and 0.0 at no radiation.

The windows and glass of the double glazing
The glass size of the pane (width x height) is between min. 300 x 200 mm and max. 6000 x 3000 mm.
The glass thickness is at least 4 mm, but is otherwise dimensions according to the building regulations.
The Window Techs double-glazed window is produced according to current European standards.
The glass can be plain clear float glass, or it can be tempered, laminated, tinted or coated in any combination and thickness.
The blinds are 16 mm & 12.5 mm wide slats and consist of profiled aluminum strip.
The ladder-shaped support / swivel cord that rotates the blind slats is made of polyester. The carrying cords have a high breaking strength and resistance to UV radiation. In the raised position, the blind occupies only 4% of the window height, which gives a large amount of light.
The slats are available in different standard colors, as shown below. The standard colors are selected to match the exterior of many buildings and do not significantly change the color of daylight.
Window Techs offer different models, each with their own functional advantages
Blind with turning / hoisting mechanism and simple carrying cords without bottom pull.
Used in windows that only rarely need to be tilted away from the vertical. Operation in vertical position only.
Used in the following dimensions:
W min 350, H min 200 mm
W max 2500, H max 3000 mm
Blind without lifting mechanism and with single carrying cords attached to the bottom of the pane.
Can be operated in vertical position.
Can be used in all types of tilting, turning or fixed windows in the following dimensions:
W min 300, H min 200 mm
W max 2500, H max 3000 mm
Manual operation with cord pull
With the control cord, turn the wheel on the feed shaft and raise or lower the blind to the desired height.
With a short movement – “up or down” – turn the slats to the desired angle. The endless string – of braided nylon fabric – is assembled with a long seam that provides a flexible and durable assembly.
The string is led out through a string guide and hangs down along the window frame, where it is held in place with a string weight.
Electric control – with push button, remote control or automatic
The Window Techs window pane system can also be equipped with electric control – either built-in or for retrofitting. Control buttons can be placed where it fits in the room.
All windows can be delivered with remote control
Window Techs delivers all types of controls – for a single window that can be operated remotely or an entire facade that must be able to be closed at the touch of a button.
The blinds can also be connected to building management system.
