Sliding Louvre Panels: The Benefits
by Kate Donkin
External sliding louvre systems are becoming increasingly popular in warmer climates, as commercial buildings and residential property owners look for ways to harvest energy, optimise temperatures, increase air ventilation and provide flexible privacy options.
Typically made from metal or wood, louvre panels are designed with adjustable angled horizontal slats to aid in the blocking of sunlight, defence again rain and increased visibility - without compromising the ventilation of fresh air throughout the property.
New to the range, our innovative Shutter Slide hardware is one of the most versatile and diverse sliding louvre hardware systems of its kind. Available in manual and automated variations, the system can be operated by hand, the push of a button or remote control - making the system ideal for applications whereby access to the building’s exterior is limited.
Covering openings up to an impressive 6000mm in width, the system can be specified in a range of different configurations including single panel, bi-parting panels or telescopic panels. Our telescopic range caters for various door configurations and is ideal for applications with limited external wall space, as panels can be stacked on top of each other upon opening to reduce the required wall space.
Not only does Shutter Slide have many practical benefits but it can also enhance the aesthetic appearance of any building, making it extremely popular with architects and designers. The systems anodised aluminium fascia conceals the hardware, allowing for a discreet and minimalist finish. Our range of guides and channel also gives customers flexible installation options depending on the application.
Made from 316 marine grade stainless steel, Shutter Slide is extremely robust and corrosion resistant, making the system perfect for coastal applications.
