Shading Tension Systems

Retractable fabric-based systems for horizontal and sloped glazing.
Horiso is a distributor of technical shading systems by Guthrie Douglas, the global leader in automated retractable shading systems for extraordinary spaces.

Shading Tension Systems use a unique spring mechanism that constantly holds fabric flat, deploy in any direction and intelligently adapts to the surrounding environment.

Horiso collaborate with architects and design teams as early in the process as possible, to specify an interior or exterior shading system specific to your project, that will disappear into its surroundings when not in use, harnessing the power of light and shade as positive architectural features.
