MicroLouvre™; the world's thinnest and lightest metal louvre fabric

The ultimate climate-protecting solution for solar heat providing solar shading, light & glare control and energy savings. The professional answer for architects, environmental & lighting consultants, and building service engineers.

What is MicroLouvre™?

The world's thinnest and lightest louvre system

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 - optimal for solar shading. 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 weighs just over a kilo per square metre.

This makes MicroLouvre™, although a simple concept, the most technically advanced, versatile and comprehensive all-in-one solution for a variety of application such as solar shading, light and glare control and fire protection with a 60 year proven lifespan. Outperforming competitors in these fields, the MicroLouvre™ technical performance criteria even exceed international methods of testing, as proved by Fraunhofer and SimScale.
