Talius Products Increase Your Homes Efficiency

Installed on the outside of windows, Talius rollshutters and Habitat Screens™ will improve your energy efficiency. They are innovative, energy-efficient products proven to enhance the quality of your indoor environment. That’s because they improve the thermal comfort conditions and reduce the risk of moisture condensation on window interior surfaces.

Talius rollshutters also protect the outdoor environment because they reduce the environmental carbon footprint of your home.  This also reduces your dependency on non-renewable energy sources.

  • Enhance the quality of your indoor environment
  • Minimize your environmental carbon footprint
  • Reduce the risk of moisture condensation on your windows
  • Save money on expensive heating and cooling costs

If you are unsure whether rollshutters or Habitat Screens™ are right for you, one of our friendly representatives would be happy to go over your specific needs and find the perfect energy efficient solution for you.

Habitat Screens

Habitat Screens™ are installed on the outside of your windows and are an effective means to create a cool and comfortable environment without sacrificing your view.

Our Habitat Screens™ block up to 90% of the sun’s heat and glare before it reaches your windows. Solar heat gains and on-demand cooling energy are greatly reduced as a result, making them an ideal energy-efficient solution.

Save money on your utility bill and lower your carbon footprint with Talius Habitat Screens™.

Talius Habitat Screens ™ reduce:

  • Solar radiation
  • Potential damage to furniture and flooring
  • Solar heat gains in summer
  • Heat loss through windows in winter
  • The risk of moisture condensation on the interior surfaces of both conventional and high-performance windows
  • Environmental carbon footprint

Habitat Screens ™ are completely retractable and are easily operated by manual or motorized control. Add optional remote control, sun and wind sensors, or even integrate them with your home automation system for even greater convenience.

Talius rollshutters are an effective solution to reduce solar heat gains in summer and heat loss through windows in winter. Installed on the exterior of your property, rollshutters are insulated to absorb heat and cold and will significantly reduce your energy bills. Easily operated from the inside of the home and completely retractable, rollshutters are the informed choice for experiencing your home in style while reducing your environmental carbon footprint.

A study conducted by the National Research Council Canada (NRCAN) showed that, when used with conventional windows in old houses, Talius rollshutters reduced heat loss in winter by as much as 19% when compared to the performance of interior blinds. The study further concluded that in summer, rollshutters reduced the average demand for cooling energy alone by a staggering 50-80%.

Energy savings will vary depending on building location, orientation and occupant positioning of the rollshutters during peak energy demand periods.
