A wide variety of Colours and types of wood

Western Red Cedar is an excellent choice for wooden louvers. It has a straight grain, is lightweight, stable and durable. Sunshield offers all kinds of colours and treatments, also for the wood slats. 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. Custom made colours and structures are possible at request. A overview with most common colours for the 148-W louver is given below.
