Fixed louvers are blades without operation, neither manual nor electrical. Unlike adjustable louvers, fixed slats are always positioned in the same fixed angle. Like 45 or 60°. As with movable louvers, there are also plenty of options to beautify your property with fixed blades.
The sun is a source of light and a source of heat. In the winter, heating by the sun contributes to a lower energy bill. That's nice. In the summer it is quickly too hot without air conditioning or a fan. That is less pleasant. With fixed louvers you get influence on this warming up. In the summer the sun climbs high and the louvers block the sun sufficiently. Even though these are not completely closed. Plus, you retain plenty of daylight, and a view.
Slats also have aesthetic properties. Louvers from Sunshield are always tailor-made and available in various shapes and many colours. This gives the architect enormous freedom in shaping his ideas. And the owner of the building has a gamut of options for distinction.
Plenty of choice
Most of the time, when there is a preference for fixed slats, the C100 louver is appied. The C-system with C100 blades is specifically developed for use as a permanent positioned louver. Basically however, louvers with rack arm systems can be used as fixed louvers too. The blades are then secured at the desired angle.
Sunshield offers an extensive range of louvers in aluminium and wood. Louvers made of aluminium are available in a wide range of colours. You can choose from powder coat colours and anodizing colours. The most common colours are available from stock. Special colours and treatments, such as textured for example, are available on request. Wooden blades are usually made from Western Red Cedar. Wooden louvers are available with several treatments and in various colours.
