Mermet, designer of technical fabrics for solar protection.

For 70 years, Mermet has been designing and manufacturing hi-tech fabrics to provide visual and thermal comfort to building occupants. By controlling the effect the sun exerts, Mermet® fabrics used in external blinds or in internal blinds have a dual effect:

  • on energy consumption by reducing the use of heating, air conditioning and lighting;
  • on comfort and well-being; light and temperature control in winter/summer, aesthetics…


Compliant with the EN 14501 standard, Mermet® fabrics are suitable for the bio-climatic facades of low-energy or HEQ buildings and meet the requirements of thermal regulations. They make it possible to drastically reduce the energy consumed by buildings (lighting, air conditioning and heat). They play a major role in the ability to obtain credits for eco-efficient or eco-design building certifications such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB, Passiv Haus.
