These solutions encompass louvered glazing, skylights and more, to enhance major global construction initiatives with utmost quality and reliability. Unicel combines its market leading know-how with great design to ensure optimal aesthetics and sustainable performance.

Unicel’s offerings include:

With its proprietary technology, Unicel’s Vision Control® delivers unprecedented comfort and control of vision, light, temperature and sound with a patented combination of louvers between glass that are hermetically sealed and cordless. Unicel’s solutions are guaranteed for longevity, optimized for energy efficiency, and customizable to any design, environmental or cultural requirements. Vision Control comes UL-rated for fire safety.

Integrated Blinds

ViuLite is a system of blinds that are permanently sealed within a double-glazed cavity for a completely dust-free and maintenance-free environment. ViuLite ensures total protection against dirt, germs and weather conditions. The versatility of both product choice and control mechanisms makes ViuLite suitable for all types of framing systems.


Unicel has made its mark as a skylight manufacturer by specializing in large, customized skylight projects with unique framing systems for the most discerning architectural requirements. Our skylights can have added special features such as integrated Vision Control® louvered glazing panels that enable the control of light and heat into the building.

Solar Shading

Unicel’s solar shading solutions - motorized louvers or sun blades - provide optimized daylight control. These shading systems are made of maximum strength extruded aluminum profiles that ensure better control of solar heat gain and daylight performance, while adding immense aesthetic appeal to a building’s design. Unicel offers solar shading systems that are renowned for their precision, quality assembly, cost effectiveness and superior construction. Unicel’s solar shading systems can be installed in fixed or variable positions for adjustable shading to ensure maximum comfort and energy efficiency.
