Solar Windows Blinds
SolarGaps is the first smart external blinds with photovoltaic panels that automatically track the sun and
generate electricity from its energy while keeping the inside of your building cool.
- Generate energy from solar cells, offsetting energy consumption
- Block heat energy coming from the sun before it enters the building
- Smart control integrate SolarGaps 3 into your building management system
Why Solar Gaps ?
The SolarGaps system consists of solar panels connected by a durable steel cable or by rigid guides to ensures secure attachment, even when the wind is strong. These facade blinds fully retract for a clean appearance and are protected by a headbox.
- Operate from -20°C UP to 60°C
- Only external installation
- Wind resistance
- Durable steel cable
- Fully retractable
- 2 years of warranty
- 10 years min lifespan
- Test with air gun
We always choose what is best for our product and that is why we use SunPower C60 solar elements made of laminated monocrystalline silicon cells with 22,4% efficiency. Embedded in the swiss aluminum panels, SunPower solar elements with ETFE coating allow the solar panels to reach 100 Watt capacity per each 1 sqr meter during the daytime. The surface of the solar elements is designed to ensure easy cleaning when it is necessary, even though most of the dirt is being washed off naturally by rain and snowmelt.
- SunPower solar cells
- Efficiency 22.4%
- 100W per 1 SQM per hour
- Self - cleaning ETFE coating
- 25 years lifespan
- SWISS aluminium slats

Electronic management device (EMD), invented by SolarGaps, is responsible for the slat position, enabling a “smart tracking” feature, and controls electricity generation, as well as transmits data from the blinds to the cloud platform and mobile application. To full fill these functions most efficiently we use a high-quality Somfy motor to work in connection with theSolarGaps EMD. The sturdy Somfy motor is powered by electricity operating in -20°C temperatures.
- Sturdy and durable motor
- Speed 24 revolutions per minute
- Controlled by electronic module
- Operates from -20 to 70°C
- Quiet operation (50 DB)
The direct current (DC) energy generated by a solar panel is not useful on its own as most households and offices using alternating current (AC). A solar inverter or a photovoltaic (PV) inverter converts DC energy into AC energy for powering appliances connected to the grid.
- Transforms solar Energy to electricity
- Converts direct to alternating current
- High average efficiency of 95%
- Globally certified for C-ETL-US, SAA, TUV, ETC
- Minimal input voltage 24V
- Designed in USA
- No noise emission
