Louvre Systems are the Perfect Foil for Architecturally-Designed Properties

Aluminium louvre systems can be tailor-made to provide the perfect foil for architecturally-designed homes or businesses. This simple, yet aesthetically pleasing ventilation system, can be contoured to match any desired level of style and functionality.

Now, as summer approaches, property owners are assessing the transformation of indoor/outdoor living areas to complement the South African barbeque lifestyle. This could be enclosing an outdoor entertainment area with a louvre roof or adding extra protection against the elements with window-mounted sun louvres. The principle in both systems remains the same – to provide ventilation while protecting against weather conditions such as baking sun rays or penetrating rain. Adjustable sun louvres filter out harsh rays and heat while allowing the movement of airflow throughout the building and reducing electricity usage.

How long do louvre awnings last?

With proper care and maintenance, aluminium louvre awnings will last many years. Although louvre awnings are generally guaranteed for five years, with regular maintenance but, in truth, their service record far exceeds that number of years.
