Ethical engineering expertise, from concept to market.

Case Study
Automated door and window shutters
Lumios shutters are novel insulative panels for wide-span architectural windows and openings of up to 25m. The primary use of these shutters is to provide automatic insulation and sun-tracking shading to large glazed areas of high solar gain and/or heat loss, but their elegant aesthetic and flexible control allows for endless possibilities.


Intelligent multiplexing drives down costs to consumer levels, allowing the use of just two stepper motors for each shutter array and one small push solenoid per Lumios unit. The system utilises three conductive guide rails to supply low-voltage power and control signals to individual shutters. Combining this system with well placed end stops and purpose-built control algorithms allows complete control of each individual shutter's position, whilst still allowing for manual adjustment.
