Aluminium Louver 88-E

Photo with close-up of the 88-E louver

A 88-E louver system is a non-retractable slatted blind with 88-E louvers. These louvers are made from high-grade extruded aluminium, and have a width 88 mm. A 88-E louver system is suited for all kinds of internal and external installations; horizontal, vertical, sloping, and upside down. 88-E louvers are usually movable, but can also be placed in a fixed position.

Profile of the 88-E louver

The front, the visible side, of the 88-E louver has an almost flat shape. Besides a great overlap, this louver also interlocks. This makes the 88-E louver perfect for black-out systems. So when you are looking for a louver that allows you to darken a room by daylight, the 88-E should be on your short list. The back of the blade is designed for optimal fixation of the clip that holds the slat.
