Monument protection

According to the requirements of monument protection

Listed buildings are evidence of earlier architecture and require protection. Strict regulations of the authorities for the protection of historical monuments have to be fulfilled regarding specific sizes, shapes, colours and materials. This also applies to the design of roof surfaces. In principle, any visible modification of a listed building is obliged to obtain permission. The appearance of a building should not be affected, and modernisation needs to be well planned.

Living comfort in historic buildings

Skylights allow plenty of daylight, provide comfortable ventilation and can be easily installed with little impact on the original building fabric. The façade of the old walls remains untouched – the authentic ambience is preserved.
Baier has many years of experience in the field of monument protection and has developed a suitable roof window shading system according to the requirements of the monument protection authorities.

Roof window “undercover”

Colour-matched, front-mounted aluminium lamellas cover the built-in skylight, which is adapted to the roof’s pitch. The undesired reflection of the window pane is effectively avoided. When closed, the roof windows “clad” in this way cannot be seen from street level, and the classic overall appearance of the main view is preserved. Local approval from the listed building authority is always required.

Historic roof renovation

The historically correct renovated roof is part of every listed building. A large number of old buildings are roofed with plain tiles. The design of the classic U-shaped tiles is similar to the rounded tail of the beaver. Roof windows provide more comfort but have to be installed according to the requirements of the responsible monument protection authorities. The newly developed Z-lamella from Baier offers sun protection without changing the appearance of the historic building.
