Architectural sun protection

Sun protection - the alpha and omega of good architecture

As solar shading, architectural solar shading protects interiors from overheating and enables glare-free use. As a façade component, it shapes the appearance of the building. With our customised sun shading systems, you can satisfy both aspects completely. We offer the entire repertoire of external sun protection – from large lamellas to movable components such as sliding shutters, folding shutters, lifting folding shutters and folding scissor shutters to textile solutions. Manually operated or automated. We develop the systems together with you as the architect or façade professional and manufacture them according to your specifications.

Project-specific: Sun protection systems according to architectural guidelines

Beginning with the fundamental question which sun shading system is suitable and ending with the constructional detail – we design and manufacture our systems customised for each object. The development takes place in cooperation with you or according to your specifications.

Recognisable: maximum flexibility in façade design

The large selection of systems, models and construction variants is completed by a variety of infills and the possible coating in all RAL colours. When it comes to creating good architecture, you can choose from a wide range of options.

Automated: modern drive technology from Baier

An automated control system increases operating comfort and readiness for use. Or you can rely directly on fully automated guidance according to the position of the sun. No matter which variant you choose, we implement it with drive technology from our company.

Premium: Quality is the best protection

Durability and unrestricted functionality are the conditions for safe sun protection and a high-quality appearance. That’s why we focus on the highest quality – starting with the aluminium profile and ending with the fittings.

Assembled: Professionally installed and set up

Professional installation is a key component for a functional and good-looking sun shading system. If desired, we can install the entire sun shading system, set automatic controls and maintain the system.

The façade professionals and architects rely on Baier

The spectrum ranges from small systems for private housing to large systems with many shops for large properties, for example, in education, administration or the hotel industry. Whether standardised implementation or tricky special cases – we enable the best solution. Let us inspire you.

Friedrich-Schiller-Gymnasium Marbach

Baier supplied brightly coloured sliding shutters to match the school's colourful logo. The individual sliding shutters consist of extruded aluminium frame profiles filled with expanded metal. The movable shutters control light and shade as needed.

Congress Centre Würzburg CCW

What was needed was an experienced manufacturer who would also dare to tackle unusual projects. Sought - found: Baier GmbH was given the task of testing, building and installing folding sliding shutters with a height of over 5 m. Perforated sheeting, the steel construction and the drives, everything was and is designed for maximum performance. Baier built a model that stood up to the demanding requirements.

Cap Ferrat, Nice

Baier shaded the corner glazing of a villa with sliding shutter segments á approx. 800 x 3,800 mm, coupled to two large systems. The special refinement here is that the two elements are "parked" behind a wall made of natural stone or natural rock.

Ottakringer Brewery Vienna

The complete glass façade offers insights and views into the world of beer. Of course, the sun protection could not be missing here. The task of realising a mobile sunshade around the new round building was the challenge par excellence. The Baier company searched for and found a superior solution.

BID Coburg

The challenge for Baier GmbH in this project was that the sliding shutters were to be integrated into the glass façade. Baier "hid" the fittings and drives behind the glass elements.
