The OPALVARIO® OV Smart system provides effective and attractive protection against sun and glare. Specially developed to provide light regulation at computer screen workplaces, the system allows a clear view to the outside, combined with glare reduction in accordance with EU guidelines. This effect is achieved by the use of special films with outstanding technical sun-protection performance and a highly reflective outside surface that provides effective heat protection. 

The discreet and compact roller blind systems in the OPALVARIO® Smart series are specially developed to provide shade in office and commercial buildings. The very small section dimensions and clarity of lines meet all the requirements of modern architecture. The System is equipped as standard with a 33 x 33 mm cassette. Another cassette design: 45 x 45 mm. A range of different side guide options are available. The side guides additionally perform an important support function within the system, and are installed either on the window frame or between the glazing strips.

The blinds are operated by a plastic or metal ball-chain, to allow infinitely variable positioning of the screen. Alternatively, we offer a wide range of SOMFY control units for steplessly variable positioning of the screen material.

The screen material can be selected from a wide range of standard OPALFILM® shade films. The films can be ordered with various light transmission rates, tinting options and surface finishes, to satisfy individual technical requirements and design preferences.
