Sun Louvres

Sun louvres are an aesthetically pleasing method of eliminating direct sun rays from entering a building, without impeding the flow of air, and still maintaining a natural light source. They also provide an attractive feature to the facade of a building, and in some cases are used purely for aesthetic purposes, or to create more privacy.

By intercepting sunlight before it strikes window glass, our sun louvre systems dramatically reduce heat gain within a room and, at the same time eliminates sun glare. This can play a significant part in reducing the amount of electricity used to cool a building.

In addition to running across the face of the building to provide protection from the sun, the louvre blades can be used to create a hood or sides to provide protection from other directions.

Fitted to an aluminium sub-structure which is mounted onto the surface of a building or attached to structural members from above, the stringers provide a secure means of attachment for the louvre blades (which if damaged can be replaced by hand). There are various  stringers to choose from, depending on the application and requirement of each installation.
