Detached house Potsdam

About the object

The contemporary detached house is located in the northern part of Potsdam and very close to the famous Karl Förster perennial nursery. The new building with its ground floor, upper floor and attic clearly stands out from the surrounding buildings. The two halves of the building, which differ from each other in size and colour and are connected to each other under a double monopitch roof, are particularly striking. Floor-to-ceiling patio doors and alternating window widths and heights on the upper floors make for bright rooms. Modern sliding shutters made of aluminium by sun protection specialist Baier provide sun and privacy protection, and their anthracite-coloured coating sets an attractive accent on the contemporary façade. A total of 13 systems with one to three wings were installed.

Detailed sun protection consultation in the Baier showroom in Röhrsdorf

In order to find the right sun and privacy protection for the new family home, the clients examined various sun protection systems in the Baier showroom in Röhrsdorf and discussed the advantages and disadvantages of the respective options with experts. After extensive consultation, they decided on the ‘Erlangen’ sliding shutter model with shutters made of powder-coated aluminium and manually adjustable slats. An anthracite RAL colour (RAL 7016) was chosen for the sliding shutters; the running rails and fittings are hidden under panels made of matt white aluminium (RAL 9006).

Rotatable slats create maximum flexibility

The Baier portfolio includes numerous sliding shutter models that can be used to shade private single-family homes – each with specific properties. In Potsdam, the building owners wanted a sunshade that would provide heat protection on summer days but not block out daylight. This is where the Erlangen sliding shutter model scores: Depending on requirements, the sliding shutters, which are mounted in an upper guide, can not only be moved back and forth sideways in front of the window. The manually movable slats allow daylight to enter the interior as flexibly as the owners wish, or as dictated by the weather or the position of the sun.

Light metal aluminium scores points for sun protection

There are several reasons for using aluminium:

  • Aluminium is light but stable and easy to install. This makes it interesting for large window fronts.
  • Aluminium is durable, sustainable and recyclable.
  • Aluminium is easy to care for.

Aluminium sliding shutters are scratch-resistant, solvent-resistant and easy to clean.

Well equipped for wind, weather and privacy with sliding shutters

Due to warmer summers and changing climatic conditions, sliding shutters provide reliable services and can be implemented on almost all buildings. Typical advantages from which building owners in Potsdam also benefit:


Sun protection

Sliding shutters block hot sun rays and rooms remain cool. The movable slats keep the rooms bright; the view of the private garden also remains possible. And even on hot days, ventilation is possible with the windows open.


Privacy screen

You also benefit from the protection of sliding shutters in the evening or at night. When the slats are closed, you are protected from prying eyes from outside. You can also sleep without the incidence of moonlight or streetlights. And if you like to sleep with the window open at night, you can install a mosquito screen on the window despite the sliding shutters.


Weather protection

Sliding shutters are an efficient wind and weather protection for windows. The distance to the façade is as small as possible because the shutters are guided at certain points. This makes the attack surface for stronger winds particularly small.
