Sliding louvers for doors and windows offer the best of both worlds. Close the screen and block the sun. Slide the shutters aside and enjoy free access and an unobstructed view.
Movable louver panels are a special application of façade exterior louvers. The blades are mounted into panels. These panels are placed in a guiding profile, in front of a door or a window. This allows you to slide the panel aside. Giving you free access to the door or window, and an completely unobstructed view.
The louvers in a panel are placed in a fixed position. For example at an angle of 45 or 60°. In the summer, when the sun is high, direct sunlight is usually sufficiently blocked. And you retain the benefit of enough daylight. On a (partly) cloudy day you can slide the panels aside and enjoy a full, unblocked view. And plenty of natural light.
Plenty of choice
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.
Screens running like a charm
For the Eelde-Paterswolde Health Center, sliding awnings have been created with the wooden 68W louver. A sliding screen is in front of a door (or a window) and is in a guide. Such a screen acts as a sunshade with fixed louvers. The advantage is that the screen can slide sideways. The doors are then freely accessible.
