Sliding louvers for doors and windows offer the best of both worlds. Close the screen and block the sun. Slide the shutters aside and enjoy free access and an unobstructed view.
Movable louver panels are a special application of façade exterior louvers. The blades are mounted into panels. These panels are placed in a guiding profile, in front of a door or a window. This allows you to slide the panel aside. Giving you free access to the door or window, and an completely unobstructed view.
The louvers in a panel are placed in a fixed position. For example at an angle of 45 or 60°. In the summer, when the sun is high, direct sunlight is usually sufficiently blocked. And you retain the benefit of enough daylight. On a (partly) cloudy day you can slide the panels aside and enjoy a full, unblocked view. And plenty of natural light.
Plenty of choice
Sunshield offers an extensive range of louvers. Including a large variation in aluminum and wood. Louvers made from aluminum are available in a large number of colours. The most common colours are available from stock. Other colours and treatments – such as a structure – are available on request. Wooden blades are mainly made from Western Red Cedar, but other types of wood are also possible. Just like the aluminum slats, wooden louvers are available in many different colours.
Screens running like a charm
For the Eelde-Paterswolde Health Center, sliding awnings have been created with the wooden 68W louver. A sliding screen is in front of a door (or a window) and is in a guide. Such a screen acts as a sunshade with fixed louvers. The advantage is that the screen can slide sideways. The doors are then freely accessible.
