S-system Clips

It all starts with the desired louver type. The louver type defines the clip. The clip connects a louver to the rack arm. The standard S-system clip is used for most louver types. Some types however require a custom slat clip, because of the size (width) or shape of the louver.

Standard S-system clip in four different colours

The clip is a two part mechanism. Jointly, the pivot arm and slat clip determine the position of the louver; from open to close, and any position in between.

The aluminium louvers up to and including the 117-E, and the wooden louvers up to and including the 94-W make use of the S-system and the standard S-system clip.

The exceptions are the aluminium 48-E50-A, and the 80-R. As well as the wooden 50-W. The clips for these louver types are described separately, and listed in the menu in the sidebar.

Pivot arm

Slat clip
