    Louvre Roofs

    Lamaxa L60 Louvre Roof

    The award winning Lamaxa Louvre Roof was the recipient of the 2019 German Award in the category 'Building and Elements'.

    The operable slats of the Lamaxa L60 Louvre Roof can pivot so you can control the amount of sun that gets through. It covers areas up to 24m² and can bear the load of up to 230 kg/m².

    There is a drainage system integrated into one of the beams of the structure so when the louvre roof is closed, water drains to one side making this a waterproof sun shading structure perfect for any large outdoor area.

    Elliptical Louvres

    When the design calls for full bodied architectural louvres with strength of appearance and high wind resistance elliptical louvres are the clear choice. We offer a range of blade profiles to suit all rectangular applications. Our elliptical louvres are high quality extruded aluminium and engineered for wide spans and easy adaption to building structures. There are endless color options since the system is powder coated or anodised to specification.

    Elliptical louvres are typically used horizontally or vertically as façade or balcony shading elements, or as overhead sunshading within a supporting steel structure. The innovative 225 Weathershade forms a waterproof roof and doubles as a sun protection.

    Fixed Louvres

    Our fixed Z profile louvres are an economical choice for sunshading and visual privacy in a range of applications. Available in two sizes the profile presents a thin edge in the façade accentuating the architectural form. The unique assembly method reduces site handling and costs allowing large areas to be assembled rapidly and inexpensively. Well proven over many years the Shade Factor V50 and V80 louvres are a popular choice.

    Rack Arm Louvres

    The Shade Factor Rack arm louvre system positions the louvres in front of the supporting frame so that the louvres remain the main architectural feature. The absence of a perimeter frame also means the system can be adapted to irregular shapes. Circles, trapezoids and many types of asymmetrics present no problem.

    It is the louvre system with the greatest freedom of configuration and has been used for myriad architectural effects. The versatile pivoting slat clip system adapts to a range of different slat profiles. There are endless color options since both the supporting arms and the extruded slats are powder coated or anodised to specification.

    The roll formed slat for lighter applications or as a compliment to the Warema external venetian range is available in popular venetian colors. We also offer a Western Red Cedar alternative. The system can be installed in any plane, vertical horizontal, sloping, externally or internally.
