MICROLOUVRE™ METAL FABRICS

Woven in the UK, MicroLouvre™ is the world’s thinnest and lightest louvre system, with up to 700 paper thin, bronze micro louvres, woven into every metre of the metal fabric.

MicroLouvre™ metal fabric is only 1.55mm thick overall (no thicker than a grain of rice) and each louvre measures only 1.25mm x 0.30mm. The fabric has an open area of 80% and only weighs 1.1 kgs per square metre.

Its multiple performance benefits operate simultaneously, making it the best shade, light and glare solution for a multitude of sectors from sun control to lighting.

  

The micro louvres can be angled between 0⁰ - 16⁰ but for optimum solar shading uses, the fabric is woven at an optimum 17⁰.
