The story of Verosol

It's 1963 when Cornelis Verolme, the famous Dutch shipbuilder, enters the port of New York. He marvels at the impressive skyline and wonders how difficult it must be to keep the indoor climate of the immense glass skyscrapers manageable.

Cornelis remains fascinated by the issue and experiments tirelessly with many ideas and concepts. In 1965, he comes up with the solution: when an ultra-thin layer of aluminium is applied to a fabric, it causes the perfect reflection of sunlight. He developed a unique process for applying a microscopically thin layer of aluminium to fabrics. This laid the foundation for the Verosol company.

Over the years, we have continued to improve the technique of metallisation and continue to lead the way in the development of metallised fabrics with unparalleled performance and excellent quality. This allows us to offer you the most comfortable indoor climate all year round.

Innovative fabrics

The vision of Cornelis: Window coverings made from metallised fabrics can effectively regulate heat and light. This makes it possible to save on energy costs and to create a comfortable indoor climate, both in summer and winter.

His legendary words:

"It feels like sitting in the shadow of a tree"
