Aluminium Louver 80-R

Detail from a 80-R roof light

A 80-R louver system is a non-retractable slatted blind with 80-R louvers. These louvers are made from roll-formed aluminium, and have a width 80 mm. An 80-R louver system is suited for all kinds of internal and external installations; horizontal, vertical, and sloping. Even upside down. The 80-R louvers are generally movable, but can also be placed in a fixed position. The 80-R is available in a variety of colours. There are even perforated variants.

Profile of the 80-R louver

The front, the visible side, of the 80-R louver has a convex, rounded, shape. The back of the blade is optimized for quick fixation of the slat clip that holds the blade. The design of the back side of the louver follows the form of the front side.

A variety of Colours and Treatments

The 80-R louver is available in a selected range of colours as shown here below. In general, the 80-R louver is available from stock in these colours. The other aluminium components can be supplied in any RAL colour. It is even possible to have louvers, rack arms and plastic components in distinguishing colours to achieve sophisticated architectural impressions.

The most common treatments for aluminium parts are powder coating and anodising. Natural anodising is the quite common, though anodizing in colours is also possible. Powder coating is possible in all RAL colours. Custom made colours and structures are possible on request.
