Besides functionality, the architectural appearance can also be relevant for rooflight louver systems.  Due to variety and flexibility of the rack arm system, the louvers can be even fully integrated with the roof. This is even possible with wooden louvers, as shown in the picture besides.



Roof tops get normally more exposed to heavy winds. The Sunshield systems have the highest resistance to wind loads, due to the use of stronger and high quality extruded aluminium profiles. And our specialists consider your specific situation also in the recommend solutions and custom made installation design.
