heroal: from roller shutters to aluminium facades and solar shading systems

German manufacturing heritage and quality are heroal's distinguishing features. With almost 150 years of experience, the company is a leader in the roller shutter sector. A fundamental step was taken in 1969 when Johann Henkenjohann, the founder's grandson, invented roll-formed and foamed aluminium roller shutter slats, setting a new industry standard from giving the company its name Henkenjohann Rollformt Aluminium. Since then, heroal has grown its portfolio to include window and door systems and façade and solar shading systems.

heroal aluminium systems for living comfort

Today heroal faces the challenge of climate change by working on functional innovations to create more efficient buildings. In particular, the company seeks to resolve thermal problems by using textile solar shading systems that protect building interiors from heat gain and create a pleasant interior climate. As far as windows, doors and sliding systems are concerned, heroal focuses on solutions that adapt to the building envelope - like thermal and sound insulation, security, accessibility and universal design - contributing to greater interior comfort and improved quality of life. Digital transformation is also an important area of interest for heroal. The company has digitised the various stages of collaboration with its customers, creating more efficient and reliable workflows and, as a result, greater customer satisfaction, a holistic approach that has won the brand numerous awards. The most recent are the 2020 and 2021 German Design Awards for the heroal S 65 sliding door system and the heroal OR patio cover system. S 65 was honoured for its straightforward, efficient production and innovative door construction. It uses a perimeter frame that reduces complexity to further simplify production and specially designed insulating bars to allow the use of large door leaves, protecting them from excessive bending. The OR roofing system has won awards for its simple design and seven-metre spans. The collection comprises several variants - heroal OR Slim Line (SL) and heroal OR Grand Line (GL) – to create versatile terrace roofs with large panoramic openings and an exceptionally slender supporting structure. The various complementary systems tailor-made for heroal OR - like the heroal HS horizontal sun screen, the heroal VS Z OR vertical sun screen and the heroal S 20 C all-glass sliding door system - make it possible to use outdoor areas in all weather conditions. In addition, the optimised use of materials and simplified assembly requires less production time and storage space. ... More ... less
