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.
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.
With straightforward, quick and importantly non-intrusive installation, MicroLouvre® ticked the boxes in terms of leading to a lower internal temperature and reducing the HVAC load by at least 68%.
MicroLouvre® concentrated the light source in the intended direction, solving the problem of unwanted light trespass and reducing light spill and glare. This essential to protect passers-by from unwanted and hazardous glare from outdoor lighting units.
Our fabrics are all made in the UK to reduce shipping emissions.
MicroLouvre™ metal fabrics and frames are 100% recyclable and are proven to last over 60 years.
The metal fabrics are made from over 90% recycled scrap copper.
Air conditioning usage can be reduced by more than 68% and equipment halved.
MicroLouvre® metal fabric has exceptional performance properties. Its solar shading and glare control capabilities, combined with its fire and heat resistance, make it uniquely versatile. Its flexibility also means we can produce this in limitless shapes, sizes, and colours for all types of window coverings, lighting design, exhibition displays and for managing natural ventilation.
