S-system Clips 80-R Louver
The 80-R louver is one of the louver types of the S-system, that doesn't use the standard S-clip. It requires a custom slat clip. That is because the standard S-clip has been designed for extruded louvers. The 80-R, however, is roll formed, and because of that much thinner than the extruded louvers.
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 pivot arm is pressed into the top track of the rack. This makes a clipping sound, and the reason this part of the assembling process is called clipping.
The 80-R slat clip is the part that holds the louver. The slat clip is connected to the pivot arm. Together these parts operate like a knee or elbow joint.
The retaining spring, or storm spring, is stretched across the 80-R louver in order to increase its wind resistance.
The pivot arms and slat clips are available in four colours:
