ScreenLine® by Pellini SpA designs, develops and manufactures sun shading systems to be integrated within double glazing units, which allow the problem of light and heat gain in buildings to be solved by means of long-lasting and maintenance-free solutions.
The blind is moved in a totally sealed environment, protected from dust, dirt or weather conditions; the characteristics of traditional double glazing units are also preserved, leaving unaltered the hermetic properties of the cavity. All this is made meeting the requirements of the current standards in terms of energy performances of buildings.
Over the years, ScreenLine®, has achieved a high number of significant patents, applying them in a wide range of products designed to meet every need related to sun shading: variety of colours, screening degrees, operation and versatility of application.
Pellini SpA was founded in 1974 in Codogno, Northern Italy, as a craftsman, family-owned company producing venetian blinds, folding doors, mosquito nets and awnings.
In 1984, Pellini started to co-operate with a leading multinational company manufacturing venetian blinds for interiors; this allowed Pellini to move away from a (since then) local market and to emerge in the national scene. In 1990, the company set up a project for integrating a blind within insulating glass, achieving the raising and lowering of a blind encapsulated within a double glazing unit whilst maintaining the latter’s integrity. All their efforts were rewarded in 1992, with the introduction of the first system in the ScreenLine® range - a system based on rotational transmission of motion obtained by the coupling of internal and external magnets. In 1994, the historical production lines for awnings and mosquito nets were decommissioned in order to maximise capacity for the engineering and manufacture of new, increasingly more advanced ScreenLine® systems and increasingly more performing technical blinds for interiors.
Today, the company preserves the old handicraft attitude in its “made-to-measure” artifacts, which are perfected by hands careful to details rather than being mass produced; at the same time, it operates on a worldwide scale and is an acknowledged leader in the field of sun shading systems.
In order to give appropriate effect to the continued evolution of its products, Pellini has given rise to Pellinindustrie, which is structured into three specific divisions:
- ScreenLine®, which works in the glass sector (DG unit integrated systems)
- Tende e Sistemi, which manufactures first-rate blinds for internal use
- Nautica, which operates in the yacht and luxury boats furniture field.
