Verosol is the number one specialist in the design and manufacture of functional indoor solar shading fabrics and blinds. Verosol is the inventor of metallised textiles and pleated blinds. We are constantly innovating to offer the best performance in heat and daylight control, to create a more sustainable living and working environment.
Headquartered in Eibergen, The Netherlands, Verosol has facilities in the Netherlands, Australia and Spain and a worldwide licensee network for global distribution.
Since the early years, we continue to live Cornelis’ legacy and strive to create sustainable environments where people can live and work comfortably.
As fashion, architectural design and construction technology evolved, so did Verosol. Verosol now provides a new generation of metal backed fabrics and blind systems with an internationally recognised reputation for quality, solar efficiency, flexibility and performance.
In 1963 Cornelis Verolme, the famous Dutch shipbuilder and founder of Verosol, sailed into the New York harbour. He marvelled at the impressing skyline and noticed that the towering skyscrapers were mostly clad in glass. He wondered how difficult it would be to keep the indoor climate manageable.
Cornelis became passionate with the idea of finding a solution to this issue and experimented tirelessly with many ideas and concepts. In 1965 he established the Verolme vacuum metalising company and developed a process –still unique today– of applying a microscopic thin layer of aluminium to textile.
Cornelis’ vision: Window coverings made from metallised textile, mounted with the metal side facing outwards, can regulate heat and light effectively. By regulating heat and light, one can not only save on energy costs, but also create a comfortable indoor environment.
The metallisation of fabric is the secret of Verosol. A very important part of the process is the pre-treatment of the textile. The specially woven textile is thoroughly cleaned to ensure maximum adhesion of the aluminium. Metallisation is subsequently a specialised process.
Applying an aluminium layer to an even surface, as is done in the packaging industry, is straightforward. But textiles have an irregular structure and are therefore much more difficult to metallise. That is the expertise that clearly sets Verosol apart from its competitors.

His legendary words
Verosol is the world’s market leader
in total solar screen solutions
With all-time performance, excellent quality and exclusive aesthetics we create your ultimate comfort zone.
We are continuously innovating, to offer you the best integrated service and support, and to meet todays energy challenges. Because the world is changing rapidly, and so is our climate.
We invented the highly reflective metalized fabric, and were the first to incorporate this concept into indoor sun protection products. With it, we reduce energy consumption in both summer and winter, and create the ultimate freedom to design facades.
All just by adding an ultra thin layer of aluminium to textiles.
We keep on improving and pushing our limits, to beat the heat and fight the light. And to transform buildings into natural, healthy places where people feel free, live fully and perform in the best possible way.
