With a single command, the slats are regulated in keeping with the orientation of the sun, for maximum visual and thermal comfort. The slats (measuring 89 mm and 127mm) are delivered with a perfect separation between them. When in the closed position, they offer a perfect equidistant overlapping, for total protection from the impact of the light and heat.
