Alika is an aluminium roller shutter shading system with adjustable slats, it can be raised and lowered and which retracts like a standard roller blind. In its lowest position Alika allows the gradual orientation of the slats to adjust the levels of light and air entering the room. It has a smooth and noiseless operating. With Alika is possible to live their own spaces with the maximum comfort, without sacrificing privacy. The using of Alika is simple and affordable for everyone, it can be operated with common electric motors available on the market (with the push-buttons or via their remote controls). Alika can be integrated into domotic systems, it contributes to energy saving and to the passive safety of the house.
The adjustable system allows to gradually adjust all the slats from 0° to 90°, to pass from the darkness to the progressive adjustment of the light and air. The particular design of the slats favours, in case of rain, the flowing of the water toward the outside even in the position of maximum opening.
The functionality in the time of Alika is guaranteed by its simplicity, the orientation of the slats is automatic and natural because of its own weight force. All the components have been carefully designed for the maximum strength and the best ergonomic in order to have an easy and fast cleaning.
The overall quality of a product is tested over the time, for this reason Alika uses the best raw materials and the most advanced technologies available on the market. Primary aluminium, stainless steel and special plastic materials are the main materials that Alika uses, so it is also 100% recyclable. Alika is a maintenance free and a "made in Italy" certified product.
Thanks to the big experience of Kikau in the aluminium industrial surface coating, Alika receives an unique and absolute painting process. The Kikau technology integrates online the anodizing and the powder coating, according to the highest quality standards.
Anodizing + Painting = Warranty
As well known, the anodic oxidation of the aluminium is the only treatment that stops the filiform corrosion forming and guarantees the best resistance in time of the product to the most aggressive atmospheric agents, even in marine areas. The anodic oxidation is a non-toxic and ecological process used also in the food industry. Kikau uses only paints in pure polyester powder, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Attention: due to the functional characteristics of the product and the necessary mechanical tolerances that ensure its correct operation in the time, it is not possible to guarantee total dimming. Therefore slight light passages that may occur between the slats and on the side components fall within the product standard. N.B .: with light colored accessories and slats the dimming performance is lower.
