Each division is constantly innovating with new ideas, turning these into the reality of cutting-edge technological products designed to meet the well-being requirements of today’s world.
History of Pellini SpA
Pellini SpA was founded in 1974. Employing craftsmen, this family-owned company produced Venetian blinds, folding doors, mosquito nets and awnings. In 1984, Pellini started to co-operate with a leading multinational company manufacturing Venetian blinds for interiors; this allowed Pellini to move away from a local market and to emerge in the national scene.
In 1990, the company set up a project for integrating a blind within insulating glass units, achieving the raising and lowering of a blind encapsulated within a double-glazing unit whilst maintaining the latter’s integrity.
All their efforts were rewarded in 1992, with the introduction of the first system in the ScreenLine® range – a system based on rotational transmission of motion obtained by the coupling of internal and external magnets. In 1994, the historical production lines for awnings and mosquito nets were decommissioned in order to maximise capacity for the engineering and manufacture of new, increasingly more advanced ScreenLine® systems and high performing technical Pellini blinds for interiors.
Today, the company preserves its commitment to craftsmanship in its “made-to-measure” ethos yet operates on a worldwide scale and is an acknowledged leader in the field of sun shading systems.
It’s this commitment to quality and innovation that has resulted in technically advanced, high performance products that you can rely on.
Over the years, ScreenLine® has achieved a high number of significant patents, applying them in a wide range of products designed to meet every need related to sun shading: variety of colours, screening operation and versatility of application.
